The truth remains that hunters shoot deer from many different angles and locations every year. That does not diminish the need to know where your deer was shot. The three places the most reputable hunters shoot their deer each year are Range: from the range, or the house, the driveway area, or any area just outside your property where you can find the animal.
One thing you can do to get the most bang for your buck of any wildlife situation is to find out where the animals are at that time of year, which is much easier when you know what your area looks like. Then, depending on where it’s standing or how your gun is configured, hit it with a different shot and hope that it bucks.
