I've never shot a deer in the head.

The few times that was the only shot I had, I shot it through the neck.

I normally shoot for the chest; a point just above the heart where I won't ruin any shoulder meat.

the head makes a lot of sudden movements on the deer, while the chest is pretty stable for an accurate shot.
