My son had to chase his "trophy" buck about 75 to 80 yards after putting one right through the heart. We didn't realize he'd done that until bringing the buck back to the house and dressing it. There was a finger sized hole right through one of the ventricles. (Don't ask which one, cause I'd have to tell a lie and say I knew!)

Neck shot last season was done at about 55 yards. Stepped it off the next day just to guestimate the distance. Don't think I would try that again if it was any further out. Think I'll have to agree with the rest of the "experts" here and go for the double lung as the "best" shot with minimal damage to the meat. (less chasing, especially when hobbling about in a knee brace like I was doing at the time)
