Default head shot. is it ethical

i think that a head shot can and should be made if its the only shot presented and the marksman is good and confident enough to make the shot work .

Have never taken that shot, never will. All it took was finding one deer that someone had taken that shot on, it had gangrene and had obviously suffered for a long time before it expired. It only had part of it's lower jaw left after it was shot. Just wish I had taken pics so I could post them.
