Pass. I would never choose to shoot at the liver (or neck).

If I knew I could make the shot, I would shoot.... Just depends on all the factors out in the woods.

PPPPPPPASSS.

Anyone that has ever hit a liver shot deer knows it can be a HELL track job. It is not worth it.

Halfrack--I will beg you to reconsider your thoughts about neck shooting deer at "close" range of 15 yards. 15 yards is NOT close range when bowhunting deer. Trust me.

I disagree with liver shots being a pain in the arse to track. My first deer ever went down and was dead in 5 seconds and 40 yards after I sent an arrow through his liver...I didnt mean to shoot it there but I had some major buck fever with it being the first deer id ever drawn on...

Well Bullet Hole, I can tell you, you got lucky then on your "liver" shot and subsequent lack of a tracking job.
