Default quartering away shot?

ok, how many of you would take a quartering away shot? let's say the deer is broadside at 15 yards. you come to full draw then all of a sudden the deer turns walking away from you quartering. all you have is say 4 to 6 inches between the hind leg and the rib cage to put the arrow. how many of you have the confidence and would take and make that shot.
i have and i have made that shot how about you.

I'm trying to picture the quartering away shot you describe, quartering away shots are your best bet for a kill shot, better than broadside. I always aim so that my arrow finds the oppisite shoulder. Your chances of taking out the lung(s), heart or other vital organs is greater. You have a greater margin of error than with a broadside shot.

A shot like that,..... deer walking away at about a 45 degree angle,...... most bowhunter would consider that the ideal shot opportunity. The trick is to mentally aim for the spot you want the arrow to exit. Your kill window does get a little smaller, but your tissue damage goes way up.

If the shot is fairly clear I'm in.

The best shot for me is slightly quartering away. That is the best opportunity for a double lung/heart shot. If I can't see the opposite forward leg to use as a guide for my shot, I don't take the shot. This scenario wouldn't offer me that shot.

At 15 yards, I would not even hesitate.

I'm all about 15 yard shots...especially quartering away!!! Actually I had one this year on a nice 7pt...He was 13yds away, quartering slightly away...head down...I drew t he bow back...released...and watched as my arrow bounced off every branch in the woods. That arrow changed directions so many times it looked like a laser light show. LOL
