It's hard for me to imagine how it would take until the next day to recover a deer that was shot through the chest, had a two inch exit wound and only went 200 yards.
In any case, there is no bullet that will guarantee a "Dead Right There" shot without the shooter making a hit to the Central Nervous System or brain.
Exit wounds and dead animals within a couple hundred yards is pretty much the definition of ideal.
Still happily answering to the call-sign Peetza.
The problem, as you so eloquently put it, is choice.
He is no fool who gives what he can not keep to gain what he can not lose.
