thanks for disagreeing with me but I have yet to just wound or miss a bird in the last 15 years (100% success rate). To each his own, just like some prefer head/neck shots and others like lung/heart shots on deer.
My experience with shooting around the wing area is that there are tendancies for the bird to deflect the arrow with its wing at impact.
