As hunters, we strive to achieve the most ethical and humane shot on animals as possible, as those shots will quickly put an animal down. Hunters debate whether to shoot for lungs or heart. I prefer the heart shot ,because any deer shot in the heart will go down very quickly, and stay down. As the saying goes, “the proof is in the pudding.”

Watch as this deer that has been shot in the heart expires quickly. This is humane and ethical shooting as its finest.
