In my opinion, risking a head shot on a deer is not very sporting. A deer starving to death because someone missed the head shot and blew off their jaw is not very cool. Each hunter has his/her own set of ethics. I prefer to take the boiler room shot. If that shot does not present itself, and I have a clean chest/neck/head shot, I may take it. But I must be confident that I can make the shot.
I disagree with always going for the head shot because it's cool to do. That is not very sporting.
