This deer has a crossbow bolt through its head which reminds us that, as hunters, we should never take risky shots.
These photos are a reminder that making ethical and high percentage shots are essential as a hunter.
Accidents can and will likely happen, but it’s important to make every effort to only pull the trigger if it is an ethical shot.
Are you able to see the crossbow bolt in this trail camera pic? It’s over the deer’s right eye.
Here’s another view of the deer. It’s shocking that the deer was able to survive the shot.
When it comes to archery, head shots aren’t the most effective. Aim for the vitals like the heart and lungs.
Use these photos as a learning tool and be sure to aim small and miss small.
