The neck shots are great ,but it's a hit or miss game.
This almost happen to me.
Took a neck shot,but hit the edge of the breast.
Bullet from the 7Mag. 160 gr blew a 2" hole in the breast.
Didn't hit heart, deer ran off 100-150 yds.
Just keep looking and found blood and the deer.
The good and bad of neck shots.
