Neck shots with a muzzleloader are not as effective as a high velocity modern bullet, as far as the damage done and shock done to the animal. I do neck shots often, using a 6.5 Creedmore with 123 Gr. Hornady SST bullets and it is VERY effective. I use the same combo on a lot of hogs, shooting them in from the center of the front leg or forward of that area...with lots of success due to CNS damage. Using a muzzleloader, I prefer the old double lung shots on deer though.
