I also prefer to shoot 'em in the neck. I've never had to track one that I've shot in the neck. I've shot 'em as close as 20 or 30 yards and as far as 200 with neck shots, and everyone of 'em was dead before they hit the ground. The deer I've had to track the most were either shoulder shots or heart/lung shots. One 8 point in particular went over 100 yards after being shot in the heart. When I butchered him, there was nothing identifiable left of the heart.......and, he only left about 3 very minute drops of blood in the entire 100 yards he ran. The big buck my brother killed last month was shot directly on the point of the shoulder, traveled a little over 100 yards and never left a single drop of blood because the 150 grain .300 win mag bullet stopped just under the muscle on the opposite side. His lungs were all mush when I butchered him.
