WAIT until it moves. Not a good shot.

I had a buck licking the rust off my ladder stand one evening... put the red dot on the crossbow right on his spine. If I missed left or right, it would still catch a lung. Hit his spine dead center (arrow was sticking out perfect perpendicular). He fell into my ladder, took 2 breathes and was done. Had to just about step over him to get out of my stand. I'd take that shot again any time. I don't know why guys think that is so unethical?

Cause if you "missed" you would catch only one lung. Better options are to shoot the deer before it gets too close, or wait for a better shot as it moves away.

I agree. If you are getting alot of deer under your stand move it back 20 yards.

Default Chip shot

Shot doe with the bow last night 3 feet from underneath me, facing me. It was starting to get my ground scent. Dead in 70 yds.

Now the details and glad I didn't see these comments before that think this is a bad shot. Know where the lungs are and aim for them on top it's not that complicated. Yes the blood trail was strange cuz it only bled at 50 yds on the entrance spraying out top as the exit was plugged with stomach. DIED IMMEDIATELY at 70 yds. Most of these comments obviously are people trying to pretend they know that haven't even tried taking the shot and will injur on a broadside shot☺️

Won't let me upload picture for proof.
