What do you guys prefer for shot placement during rifle season?

I've heard that a neck shot will take a deer down where it stands so no need for a tracking job (may try this on some property that I have permission to hunt that is only about 10 acres to prevent a wounded deer from travelling onto adjoining properties.

Normally I just shoot for the vitals, but have noticed that sometimes you may need to track for a while.

What is it about the neck shot that drops them? Spine and nerve damage? Do they die instantly with the so called dropped in there tracks neck shot? Or does it just render them unable to move and they suffer for a while until they bleed out?

I aim for the vitals always and have dropped all my deer in there tracks. But a neck shot is all my paw paw takes and they all drop to. So i think either way your good.
