First off, Im not a hunter. I fish and I do photography.
Often when Im shooting (camera) birds, or any other animal, for some reason, I pretend its a gun. I know its stupid. Anyways, I do. I pretend Im setting myself up, and preparing for the bird to land, or the horse to stop moving or whatever, then I take my picture.
Now, when I imagine myself as this guy with the cool camera/gun, I often aim for the head of the animal. Just to get cool pics of the eyes or something.
I was just wondering...here comes the dumb question; Why dont hunters just shoot the bear/moose/duck right in the head?
Wouldnt that kill it instantly? Im sorry if this is a stupid question, I just had to ask. If I didnt, Id always wonder.
