"What focus settings do you use?"

Have the D7000 and have been using mainly with the 18-200 and have not been having great results. Focus is off and I'm not sure if it is me or the camera/lens or setting I'm using. I shoot both in auto and aperture. If I take a picture of my wife/daughter the focus point is on the blouse rather than the face and as a result it is slighty blurry. I was coming home from a trip and in a field were two baby deer. Took some shots at the 200 length and the focus point was the grass by their feet, not anywhere on the deer. Shooting at f8. There are some shots that are right on but most of them are not. I'm thinking I will bring the camera and lens to Nikon in Melville (also have an older 80-200 that has a slight dent on the outside ring)but was wondering if it is something I'm doing wrong.

Best.... Steve
