Where is "the boiler room"?

Interesting diagram, especially for new hunters.  A friend enlarged this fairly big for her young son to shoot with his bow.

That's a good pic to show new hunters.I always told my son to pretend that there was a beach ball in the deer's chest and told him to make sure he let the wind out of it when he shot.

Good post.  Well worth the time to find a similar diagram for moose and bear.  Everything's not exactly where you may have thought.  I was amazed at the path of a mooses backbone, and the location of a bears heart, as well.  Both were of course, "generally" where I figured, but not quite.

A great diagram for beginners and experts alike , it's sometimes over looked after years of kills too where the best place in the vitals is to place a broadhead or bullet. Everyone knows a double lung is a sure kill but how high how low what are the margins is what is over looked. Some times the experts should be reminded arse shots on wild tv are becoming a bit to common.
I'm from the country , and I like it that way!!!

Bears are just a little different.  Sometimes it is a little hard to see what the true angle is on a black animal in poor light.  You can see why bow hunters like to wait their shot till the bear moves its close leg forward to expose the heart lung area and get that big leg bone out of the way.  A gun hunter shooting a strong bullet with some power can break that big bone and drive through the heart/lung.
