I’m not a fan of neck shots, personally. But remember that the spine is not the only thing in the neck that will cause a mortal injury when hit. There are also large arteries and veins that will cause exsanguination and cessation of blood flow to the brain, when injured. And don’t forget a tracheal hit that will cause suffocation in short order. And all of these structures are in close proximity to each other in this area. My problem is that, unless the distance is short and the animal is very still, the neck presents a significantly smaller target than the chest.
