40+ years of deer hunting with around 60? killed, I've never had the need to head shoot one. I hunt some of Pennsylvania's thickest mountain laural patches and some dark cedar swamps in northern Michigan and seem to find the traditional kill zone. If your thing is to head shoot game more power to you. Doesn't it make it hard for the taxidermist to put back the side of a head? Just asking.

I bet it would if I could ever shoot one worth hanging...

In reality I have only taken two head shots. Both were on does, and both were taking a drink out of the creek. It is rare that the situation is perfect for the head shot, but the occasion does come around now and then for me. Don't get me wrong...most of my shots find the traditional kill zone, and I am always surprised when they go bounding off.
