When reading old books the hunters seem often to need a number of shots on large animals. Is it bad shooting or lesser effective guns. And also loose animals.

Keep that in mind.



Oh to be sure, and likely some of both.

Even today one reads of animals not hit correctly with the first shot and requiring quite a few more shots to finally bring them down for good. Seemingly applies even to nimrods armed with .458's, .500's and .577's?
Could be more of that than gets admitted or told of.
