Blog - "Solid Shots" Part 4

Posted by

For a deer hunter, hunting season is the very best time of the year. We anxiously count off the months until we finally have the opportunity to pursue the game we love.

Texas Hunter Products want your hunting experiences to be the best they can possibly be, and this means getting you properly prepared to hunt.

In Part 3 of this series, we addressed the Front Quarter shot. Now, we’ll show you what to do when you’re eye-to-eye with your target.


The Frontal Shot

Here is a hunting angle that is often the cause of wounded animals every year, especially among bowhunters. At first glance, it would seem as if there would be much in the way of a generous kill-zone, but this is just not the case. The vitals on this angle are sandwiched tightly between plenty of skeletal structure.

Fortunately for the gunhunter, there is a little more kill-zone to work with than with the bowhunter. Aim for the lower, dead-center of mass, and if your bullet is centered properly, the animal will go down where it stands. However, be cautioned: If you shoot a little high, and just off to either side, you will more than likely be tracking a wounded animal.

This can be a difficult shot for the bowhunter. There is not a lot of room for error on this angle, and untold thousands of bowhunters have negative outcomes with this shot every season. Hitting center is absolutely critical. If you cannot shoot a consistent 3-4 inch arrow group at the appropriate yardage, do not attempt this shot. However, put a properly placed broadhead dead-center and it will cause extensive damage to the vitals.

Be sure to look for Part 5 where we show you how to place your shot when the target is Partially Obstructed
