If you’d rather dress a deer than track it, make a promise to yourself that you will not release in these six situations.
The Texas Heart Shot, as it is sometimes referred to, is a horrible choice for the ethical deer hunter. I have heard stories from bowhunters telling of their amazing shot and how quickly the deer died with this.
Don't Shoot! Your chances of success are low, and there is just no good reason to risk it. If you have ever butchered a deer, you know what you are up against, and it isn't encouraging. Stay away from this shot.
