    I understand perfectly. So far I have found everything I hit, but I have also missed cleanly. I know how I would feel.

          It's moments like these I call bowhunters pretentious self-serving cunts. Nothing personal, but this is what you do, and this is a known possible side effect, and still you continue giving yourselves masturbatory jollies with the whole macho experience. We just have to fuckin hope it was a through and through but by what you're saying it wasn't.

          I think if you're going to carry on with this occupation which is very HIGH RISK to the deer, (not you of course, no risk to you) then you need to get some kind of bluetooth or radio signal in your fucking arrows, and you need to stay up all night till you track that animal down.

          I don't hate you Harvey: but use a fucking gun or fuck off.

            You are entitled to your opinion, but I believe gun users are more inclined to take poor shots. Bullets are cheap, and if you miss a little you can shoot again.

            This opinion is backed up by how many accidental shootings happen with bow hunters verses rifle hunters. Bow hunters know their shot is less "powerful", so they get closer, wait for a better site picture. So they have these incidents less than rifle hunters.

            Bowhunters also tend to be more interested in traditional approaches to hunting, so they respect what they are doing more. They take their time and cut less corners.

            This is what I believe, and I have hunted in almost any way you can imagine, so my opinion comes from someone vested in the art, who is speaking from years of actually doing it, and being immersed in the culture. You hang around hunters and the "I know I hit him, but lost the blood trail" story is much more common from the rifle group.

            again, you can think as you please.

                  Eh, it happens and it sucks.

                  But first off I know you know this, never shoot unless you know you have a kill shot.
                  And know your skill, archery is a skill.

                  It's bow season here, and hunters want to hunt even if they can't shoot a bow.

                  There's a lot of deer running around town with an arrow in the ass right now.
                  However, I've always felt a true hunter hunts with a bow.

                    My brother-in-law bow hunts. (gun also) He's a guide and a great shot. Even he's lost a deer, he hated it too. It happens. You didn't do this intentionally.

                    I told you to friggin call the vet!!

                      Hunting is a lot like anal sex, you gotta go into your spot slowly, and if you make a mistake you get an ear full of scolding.

                      And it's best not to attempt drunk

                        If you're going to hunt with bows then take a dog.

                        Otherwise don't hunt with bows. I'm inclined to disagree about 'true hunting' being with a bow. I'd say true hunting would be with a trap.

                        as to guns:
                        a bullet in the innards is something you can continue your life with: my cats attest to that, god knows when they die you find a million bloody slugs in them. You can feel them under the skin.

                        But this is less easy to carry on living with.

                          Hating it's all very well. oh i hated it they say.

                          Hating it's not acceptable. Not doing it is acceptable. making sure you don't do it again is acceptable.

                          As I say above, if you're going to do this, take a dog. Hunt the damn thing down and finish it off. But not taking a dog is to not care how good your shots are.

                          And that's not good enough.

                            Didn't that deer picture make the rounds a while back and turned out to be photo shopped?

                            I am not saying it doesn't happen. But I think this photo was a liberal fake job.

                              I'm terribly sorry.

                              Here, choose a better one for yourself.

                              As I say, take a damn dog or else fuckingwell use a gun. Or trap one. That's actually probably what would have been done by stone-age man. Given that his arrows wouldn't be on modern bows, they probably wouldn't get much traction on a deer hide.

                              Go be authentic. Trap them. That way you can be sure of a clean kill.
