    That may be why most people shoot for a double lung shot instead of a head shot. It's about the quickest, easiest way to kill one.

    A learning experience for ya eh? Even when a deer drops right in it's tracks, it's a good idea to wait a while before you approach it. I know, you get excited, and it's hard not to run right over to it. I wait 20 or 30 minutes.
