I have been deer hunting every year since I was 24 and I am now 61 years old.

The rifle was way off zero and I don't think any chambering would have made a difference.
Obviously not a bad kill due to inexperience or for lack of wanting to do what is right, but a bad kill due to negligence. The equipment/zero were not properly maintained/verified.

I have never figured out why hunters go hunting without verifying their zero and doing it well. I was surprised when I learned of this phenomenon and even more shocked when folks here responded with stories indicating that it is a widespread and common problem.
