Was wondering where the Best place to shoot a deer with a 223 is.
I am takeing my little girl deer hunting this weekend and was wondering. I always shoot them behind the sholder where your supposed to but heard of people shooting them in the neck since it's such a small gun. I know some people totally disagree with neck shots but was needing some suggestions. Will be hunting with a 223 and 69 grain hollow point bullets. Probley won't shoot over 100 yards. Most of the shots will probley be 20 to 30 yards.
I believe if i was you, i would just have her shoot in the same place, behind the shoulder.
Since she is young, and the neck shot being a smaller target, she might have a better chance of a fatal shot in the boiler room.
I like the neck shot on a doe when i want to make sure she's anchored and dont run off.
Especially if she is close to a property line, near a thicket, etc.
By the way, is there a youth hunt this weekend in Ky., i have'nt checked the guide?
Good luck with your daughter this weekend, and i commend you for taking her.
