Head-on shot on large game
Head-On Shot Angle
  • A head-on shot can be effective if your firearm is already positioned for the shot. However, these shots rarely result in a clean kill and ruin a lot of meat.
  • For large game, aim for the center of the chest.
  • This shot should not be taken by bowhunters because of the reduced chance of hitting a vital organ.
