I need to qualify my ideas about taking the frontal chest shot.You need a bullet that fragments inside the deer.Many of the heavier calibers/bullet designs would make it through the deer lengthwise and create a mess.I know there are opposing ideas about whether a bullet should pass through and create a large exit wound for bleed out and tracking.Or should it expend all its energy inside the deer with many fragments doing alot of damage.I have hunted with a large group for many years and have helped in attempts to recover deer that had pass through wounds from bullets that did not open up enough in thin skinned deer.
