Shot placement for rapid kill is the primary objective of any ethical hunter. Shot placement for miminal meat damage should be next on the list. Killing for the sake of maximum carcass damage is not for me and I hope most here would agree. A rifle is simply a tool, use one that gets the job done quickly, accurately, and with miminal meat loss and you've done your job as a hunter.
I dont beleive anyone could have said it better.. Good post..
