To comment on just one small portion of your thoughtful comment, I enjoy archery, and I used to be pretty good at it once. I don’t care for bowhunting, though, because I don’t like making animals suffer. I can be reasonably certain to get a clean kill with a rifle. With a bow, that’s really not possible. Deer shot with arrows often have to be tracked for hours, and sometimes you can’t find them at all. It’s not pleasant.
