Well, at the same time, no hunter anyone here knows is an A-rank adventurer that's beaten a dragon to death with a sword. And if a bear charged him I'd put good odds at him just beating into a pulp with his bare hands. So I feel its rather useless to compare real life hunters to fantasy hunters.

Head shot on a human is almost always fatal because we have such a large brain. Head shots on almost every other animal is not as effective because their brain occupies a relatively small portion of the head. That's why you aim for the chest because it's a larger target to begin with, and it's almost entirely filled with important organs like heart and lungs. What usually kills the animal is lung shot that leads to massive internal bleeding, especially when the animal reflexively bolts after getting shot. That sudden exertion and the spike in BP makes the internal bleeding much worse, and the subsequent drop in blood pressure make them pass out. No Hunter I know would go for a head shot, maybe if he's being charged by a bear and you got the gun for it, but you're pretty much fucked then anyway.

@MisterXiado maybe he's just that good?

Never go for a headshot when hunting. Always go for heart or lungs. A more sure kill, as the kill zone is a larger target area. Too many stories about idiots shooting off a deer's jaw, so it starves to death if it doesn't bleed out.

I wonder what the reason for changing the gender of the disciple was... hopefully not for getting more unfunny cliches and unnecessary fan service into the story...

I see your point, but I need to remind you that the dude's a retired adventurer with high-level gear and he knows what it is capable of. Chances are that he developed a habit to always try to decapitate or aim for the head as some of the monsters that he has killed had some kind of regeneration factor making body shots useless or inconveniences at best.

I'd say someone's going to get some meat tonight, but it's japanese so the MC won't even entertain the thought.

But hitting the head is a critical hit and does DOUBLE DAMAGE!

To be fair, dude is using a war bow and the shot looked to be about 15 feet or so. That deer was clearly deaf and at full draw that thing could probably put the arrow through the other side of that thing's skull.

However, you're correct, proper hunters wouldn't shoot for the head like that.
