Here’s another great webisode from Optifade covering the basic anatomy of the deer kill zone and examples of different shot choices. Pretty basic stuff, but still good to always come back and really understand the anatomy of your quarry. For beginners this is a superb video, as the discussion of different shot angles and how an arrow or bullet can do damage on different parts of the deer is crucial to understand before taking aim at wild game.

Remember, it’s always better to be patient and pass up an animal, than to force a shot and wound your deer.
