Re: neck shots on deer?
You did right to pass the shot. It can be done, but your kill zone is considerably smaller. Bear in mind most buck's necks are swollen now too, which shows more surface area to pick that kill zone out of. Opinions may vary, but for me, it's either behind the shoulder or I don't take the shot.
A friend of mine attempted a neck shot last night, and was crying the blues today. Several hundred yards of light blood, then nothing. I'd have to guess that buck's sore, but still chasing does.
