But yes there are pepleo out there who are smart enought but not all of them. Thats all I am saying just be carfull.
I'm with CVA54, a good friend of mine was watching a buck @150yds +- and a guy directly inline with him and the deer @ 400yds. The guy fired and missed and my buddy heard the bullet zip by. The guy shot again and finaly hit the deer(in the back leg). My buddy had to shoot a couple rounds into the air before the other guy even knew he was there, my buddy was wearing an orange jacket and hat while standing upright in the open(at first, before he had to hit the ground.
My point is that most of us on this site are a bit more responsible hunters than this guy was, but just make sure your not "that guy" if your using something that's gonna throw lead that far. Other than that, the only reason I can see not to use the 7mag is the fact that it's kinda spendy to shoot. The fun factor cancels that even that out most of the time.
