When it comes to the ethics and efficacy of heart versus double-lung shots, opinions vary depending on who you ask. Some bowhunters are of the opinion that double-lung shots offer vast benefits over the heart, while others say the pumper is the organ to aim for. Bring the subject up in any hunting forum, and you’re bound to get a good-natured debate over shot placement.
That being said, a hunter recently uploaded this video of what appears to be a heart shot on a deer to Facebook. As the video was shared over social media, many hunters soon began criticizing this archer for taking what they thought was a very chancy shot. What do you think? Was this an extreme display of skill and accuracy, or just simple luck? Perhaps more to the point, would you take the same shot?
