Where else would he aim, right between his eyes??? Go back and read his statement on how the shot went down.
And yes I did mean anatomy.

He was facing me but I was fairly confident on what I could do with the arrow.
This was the OP's situation. Obviously, he felt a little differently than you and I do about head-on shots. In fact, he killed this deer......looking for one he'd hit and lost.

Pretty sure he meant to hit him in the neck.

All, no luck yet in finding that 1st deer. I am heading out today to walk the woods with the dog and son partially to get my son outdoors and the dog some exercise and the other reason, just maybe I see the deer dead or alive. I could get another one since I have the tag but my freezer is full from the deer so I doubt that I will get out again, maybe. GMAT and petasux, I really hope that you don't spend a lot of time blasting others on these sites and you exert more energy into sharing your lessons learned. As an archer, many are against and few are for, so I hope that we can take this time/energy to improve our community and educate those against. Good luck with your remaining season.

I was sharing a lesson with you. If you think that's "blasting", I apologize.

An "archer" might take that shot (straight-on). A bowhunter might think better of it.

I wish you luck with the remainder of your season, as well.

I can't answer for GMATT but what I took from his comment was:
(if i was of the mind)= my f****** thinking it was a good shot presentation, meaning the shooter's thought process.
