    So, from time to time I see where someone asks a hunting related question as to where to take this shot or that shot in this situation or that and someone chimes in with diagrams showing, specifically, where the vitals reside in different game animals... why not put them all in one place?

    What do you guys think? How's about some vital area diagrams for the newbs...(myself included with some game animals)

    Okay, I've stuck the thread. Later, I'll go through and do some editing and deleting so that we basically just have the "educational materials". :)

    This is from American Hunter, the NRA's excellent magazine.

    ared deer brain is about the size of a cricket ball. one of the things that often foxes starters is that the bone up to the shoulder (humurous i think) in a deer is so far forward. really a good broadside point of aim on a deer is half way up the body in line with the back of the front leg. this will take the top of the heart out and more importantly disconnect all of the big vessels there.

    I've always stuck with the double-lung shoulder shot for most everything (with 4 legs) I'm hunting. A neck shot is also effective, but there is less room for error & if it doesn't hit just right, they'll still run a little.

    Hunters anatomy of a feral hog

    This article deals with the anatomy of the wild boar. GRAPHIC PHOTOS are used to illustrate the location of the heart, lungs, and spinal cord so hunters can better understand the proper KILL ZONE area.

    Excellent stuff!! I've GOOGLED around a lot, and cannot find anything pertinent to USA pronghorn antelope.

    I'd sure like to see a broadside "cutaway" view of pronghorn, especially if it clearly showed the diaphragm/stomach position relationship.

    Thanks, folks.......

    i like the turkey one, it looks kinda freaky at first but if you look close you can really see the resemblance it has to a thanksgiving turkey. also helpful too because i plan to start turkey hunting sometime this year.

    Elk x-ray target with placement shown for a heart shot 36x30 White paper with gridlines . (You can check Sportsman's depot for the target, and target show bones in relation to vitals rather well,)

    Thanks curtix for that bow link - sometimes the shot is a little further back than I would have thought so learned something useful.

    p.s. Though a rifle hunter I found the game worthwhile, which is why I resurrected the thread.
