A nice summary of things…

I was a bit taken aback that the author classified tree stands as unethical. It’s about the only way to kill a deer around here. You can sit on the ground if you like, but you will starve.

I thought he was a bit generous in his appraisal of compounds as weapons basically as primitive as traditional bows. And while he railed against the commercialization of hunting, he completely missed the uber commercialism associated with compound bows.

And I thought the bit about the NRA was spot on. And still, the average bowhunter around here is a staunch NRA supporter. Guns before bows.

I don’t know if anything will “save” hunting. But I am confident that the last group standing will be the guys with sticks and strings.
