"Elmer (Keith) has apparently found that animals get away wounded because hunters use 'inadequate' calibers on them. It is my own experience that animals get away wounded because careless and unskillful hunters do not place their shots well. It has also been my experience that if a shot is not well placed the animal is not killed and generally has to be followed up. A poorly placed shot is a poorly placed shot no matter what bullet is used."
