I've only had 1 deer run off that I never retrieved, and I was 14 and bowhunting. It was because my sight had gotten knocked off, and I didn't know it. We searched through some of the thickest nasties thorny briar-patches you can imagine, tracked blood for a while. We did find it a couple days later on the back-side of the pine thicket when we saw the buzzards circling. That is the ONLY deer I've ever shot and not recovered. And yes, I felt like crap about it, but it was something I couldn't help. It happened, many many years ago, and I have made damn-sure it hasn't happened since.
Sorry, I wasn't running down archery hunting at all. You're talking to a bow hunter. I was trying to say that there are a lot of bow hunters who aren't what I consider proficient. Too many go to cabela's, buy the cheapest bow package they have, and go hunt... Lacking the necessary skills to take the tough shots let alone the self control to turn the wrong shot down!

I gotcha...And yes, I agree. Alot of idiots out there in the woods with guns and bows. I used to sell stuff to them at the outdoors store. Back then I just smiled and nodded my head.

Now I call people out for stupidity, because life's too short to deal with BS.

All that being said I think we all agree the 7mm is better right...

To a point. I think once you get bigger than the STW the begatives start to outweigh the positives. So to me, the 7 RUM is worthless, being that I already have an STW that is only 80-100 fps slower, but will have almost twice the barrel life.
