- The quartering-toward shot angle is when your target is facing toward you, but at an angle. A deer or other game quartering toward you presents a clear shot to the vital organs. A firearm shot can be taken at this angle if the gun is already trained on the animal.
- Firearm hunters should use the chest area above the near front leg as the aiming point for an effective hit.
- Bowhunters should avoid this shot because the vital areas are protected by bone. Also, an arrow should not be fired at an animal that is looking at you.
