which is more common - accidental shoulder blade shot or liver/gut shot? I have yet to hit one in the shoulder blade but I have it more than one in the liver. thankfully it is a deadly shot but they don't always die very quickly and obviously not a shot I intentionally pick. But it makes me wonder now, am I shy of hitting the shoulder accidentally so I end up going farther back than I should? I know that in a couple instances my mistake was the deer was still moving but even on a still deer I have hit 2 that were standing still in the liver or lung/liver and they died but I wondered why I pulled the shot. Perhaps just user error by chance has hit them far back rather than in the shoulder. But I was wondering if anyone else has noticed the same thing or if it's different for everyone. Are shoulder blade shots, or liver shots more common among bad shot placement?
