just ask any of my last 50 clients how many have taken a head shot???(if you ask on here there are some of my clients and they will tell you I ask for no "clever" shooting just a boiler house shot.)
And me personaly out of the last 50 deer I've shot NONE.
Cant prove this dont have to.
All that was written earlier is that in my careeer I have shot deer in the head (and dont like it)
And the DMQ will now not condone it, though they have in the past.I have had 1 deer go through many moons ago with a head shot.
"best practice" is exactly that not a hard and fast rule just a guideline.
You will find if you look hard enough my dislike for the said shot.
But in my honesty I have admitted an occasional head shot when circumstances have been correct.
""But only in selective circumstances and not as preferred method.""
What in my above statement is not to read propley???
""Its time gamedealers excepted a little damage and allowed hunters to follow our guidelines".""
All this means is gamedealers should accept boiler house shots on deer and not penalise the hunter for such a shot..??
I personally haven't sold a deer to a gamedealer for 3 years.
All mine the clients take or go as rent or go to other outlets.
Still cannot see your point, I haven't contradicted myself only made an admition that on occasion I have taken a head shot ONLY WHEN THE SITUATION HAS DICTATED NOT TO SATISFY A GAMEDEALER.
