For all the hunters headed to the woods this weekend, here’s a quick review for where to aim based on the deer’s body position!  Hunting with a firearm is usually at longer distances.  A quick, easy retrieval is  all about shot placement, the efficiency of the firearm and the ammunition.  In this short video, Grant shares very specific and detailed tips for shot placement when deer hunting: broadside standing still, quartering-to or quartering-away, and why you should avoid neck/ head shots, full frontal shots and the “Texas heart shot”.
