Where do you aim on an animal?
I hear so many people say the shot was perfect, he dropped on the spot. That for me is not perfect as it means a bone/skeletal or brain shot. This type of placement has little room for error and a near bone shot often means muscle or meat is hit and an animal running away with a hole in its body to likely die of infection or survive and live a pretty tough life.
I always take into consideration the angle of the animal and never have a set aiming position you always put the crosshairs on because that alters with angles. For example if you always aim just behind the shoulder and the animal is quartering on you will gut shoot it, not good at all.
If the animal is on flat ground I’ll try to put a bullet just under halfway on the body line, imagine a spot between a third and halfway up the chest and that’s where the crosshairs are. Depending on angle, facing, quartering on, side on, quartering away that will determine where the crosshairs go on the near side.
Also take into consideration if you are shooting on steep angles and adjust crosshairs accordingly up or down the body.
There is a lot to making sure each time you squeeze the trigger that animal is cleanly harvested so educate yourself on aiming points and internal positioning of vital organs.
And remember animals can live with bone shots, but they very rarely live with holes in their lungs, so for me that’s where i aim, the largest internal vital organ.
