In a different thread of a different topic, somebody pointed out the neck as the best place to shoot deer. He uses a .22-250 with 45gr hollow points. (If he sees this thread, he can comment on it himself). He says they always drop, and no meat is lost. My question is, what do the rest of you think of neckshooting a deer? Are there any negatives? I only have experience with broadside heart/lung shots. But maybe I should try neckshooting and see how it goes. My concern would be having the bullet miss the spine and vitals in the neck, and just going through wounding the deer. With the heart/lung area, I was taught that was the biggest vital area and best target of opportunity. And, I assume, nobody uses neckshooting with arrows, but maybe somebody does and has great success with that? Thanks Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
