Being a bow hunter I usually go for the "double lunger". Not much meat loss. I am fortunate to have a timber surrounded by corn and bean fields, so if they do a death run after the shot, I don't worry about other hunters stealing my deer.

I have shot many doe's in the head, but that is with shotgun slugs. At close range on a doe with my handgun I would take whichever presents itself of the two.

I prefer to take a quartering-away shot with aim at the opposite front shoulder. Usually works pretty well if I place it correctly.

not a big head shoot fan. you only have to see a couple of animals dying a slow death with it's jaw/ face shot off before you state thinking there is a better way to take game. then maybe i've got too soft a heart.

Im usually a meat hunter and like clean hides so the looking at me throat shot is a favorite just under the head shuts them off and drop straight down. If im chasing the mount or need to save the cape behind the front shoulder bottom half the chest.

Where I hunt I normally get a broadside shot. I go for a double lung shot when possible so I do not waste a lot of meat.
They do not go far hit with a 480 Ruger, or a 35 Bullberry 180 grain bullet. The longest I have had one run was almost 100 yards hit with a 129 Hornady Spiral Point from a 6.5 X 30 JDJ Contender. I would have bet money it would have went down sooner than it did.
