I've never purposefully taken a neck or head shot at a *healthy deer, but did have an arrow go through a doe's neck once when she jumped the string. I got lucky that the broadhead found the mark and kept the tracking job within a couple hundred yards, as opposed to missing anything important and just wounding her.

I don't take full frontal shots, just a personal preference, and never had a situation where I couldn't wait for at least a quartering shot instead. YMMV.

*I have taken head shots at deer already wounded by others, at close range.
