I stand by taking a head/neck shot. If it's close enough that I can make a good shot, and ensure the deer will not suffer, I will take it. I hunt in areas that if the deer runs, you most likely will not find it or may end up on someone else's property. I'm not gonna take a 200yd neck or head shot with my 30/30, but a 0-50yd shot with my 30/30, I would. With my shotgun, I'd limit to 30yds on a head/neck shot. I was taught in the Marines 1 shot, 1 kill. I'm not completely dismissing a heart/lung shot, but it depends on alot of factors. I've heard of deer being wounded by people who took shots that exceeded their capabilities, or just weren't a good shot to begin with, I don't want that on my conscience.
