I cringe when I hear of missed or multiple shots.
I wasn't taught to hunt by my elders, but I was taught to shoot.
I am responsible for the final disposition of every bullet that I fire. I will not fire unless I am sure I can put it in meat or significant backstop. With that philosophy, I rarely have to look for animals. Pulling the trigger and hoping for the best is irresponsible.
I get it.....mistakes happen, most have pulled a shot once in life.
