Default Shot Placement

I just spent the afternoon and some of this evening doing some programming to "crowd source" shot placement for some deercam photos I have...Shot Placement Practice As more people click where they would shoot, it will eventually make a little heat map. (see the little red dots)



Any suggestions for improvement are welcome.

If you're using this for bowhunting, I probably wouldn't take any of the quartering towards you shots. It takes a lot for an arrow to break through those shoulder bones. Especially if you've never bowhunted before I would stick to broadside or quartering away from you so you have a clear view of those lungs.
