I really have no problem with the idea of hunting just about anything in North America with a .308, but hunting it and killing/stopping it where you want it is an issue in my area. The way we say it is "there's a lot of DOWN out there and too many gravities in some spots". Around here 25 yards can mean 100 feet or more of DOWN and back UP.
"The best hunter ain't the one that bags the deer with biggest rack, it's the one that drops it closest to the trail"
DRT is the goal.
