i tend to use neck shots with a 44 magnum levergun, never had one still alive when i got to it with that combo
I shot one in the neck with a .45-70 and it went down instantly. I waited 5 minutes before approaching. I couldn't see him breathing or moving so I handed my rifle to my dad and picked up his antlers to look at him. I got a big surprise when he started shaking his head and trying to get up. Needless to say I let go quickly and I used a handgun to finish him off.

Tapping the eye with a branch would have probably prevented that little near coronary event. Although if he was really unconscious I don't know that he would have reacted even to that.
