My 2 cents Rowdy.

That diagram doesn't really show how high the armpit crease goes on the body. It actually tends to go a little higher.

That being said on a Live Deer if you hit the top of the armpit crease that totally disrupts the arteries on the top of the heart. This doesn't stop the heart which is a good thing. The animal bleeds out way quicker if the heart keeps going. Plus this aimpoint gets both lungs as an added bonus. This shot anchors deer within 50yds everytime of where it is shot in my experience.

Centering the heart, stops it. The animal either goes no where or quite far. I've had to track heart shot deer up to 150yds before.

PA if I could I'd be joining you guys at E3. :lol:

Heck I have a hard enough time getting a deer in my sights. But that's not stopping me from trying. :lol: One of these days I'll get one. Even a blind squirrel finds an acorn.

Pa you'll have your day in those magnificent rockies - I hope you guys have a great trip and safe hunt there.
