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?

Last year i concentrated on neck shots only. Huge mistake that i wont be repeating. A neck shot is not always a guaranteed DOA.
From now on its "vitals only" shots for me.

There's a lot of good meat in them necks. Right behind the shoulder for me if possible.

From what I know it is the ability to absorb the shock and getting the spinal cord. But if you drop them you want to go finish them off right away.

I've shot 2 in the neck by mistake. first one dropped where it stood. i figured it would bleed out by the time i got back with my truck. when i got back blood was every where and the deer got up and ran off and never found. second one it didn't drop but did lay down but got up and walked off. 30 mins plus i found it stuck in a brier thicket stuff and still very much alive.

x2 - only one I've had drop where it stood was thru the front of the neck. Every vital shot I've made they have ran at least twenty yards or so

I prefer shoulder. I only take neck shot if have to. I like the bigger target.

I prefer right behind the shoulder where you have more margin of error.
