Gotta shoot them somewhere. The neck shot can be a really great option. There are pluses and minuses with a neck shot just like with anything, but most of the neck is very deadly. The risk of non-fatal injury is low, I’d argue much lower than a lung shot. A good Marksman takes advantage of what the animal gives them. I’ve done a lot of still hunting for elk in thick cover. Neck shots are an important part of this style of hunting.

The cousin of the neck shot, the head shot, is asking for trouble in my opinion but neck shots are generally a clean miss or a dead ungulate in my experience
