I thought for awhile on how to reply to the topic when I realized I could not say it any better than Mr. Petersen.
James, I share that opinion with you and Dave, but in terms of effectiveness, if I were a deer, I’d rather a bowhunter or riflehunter shooting iron sights trying to sneak around in the night with a crappy NVG (a noisy affair) over a guy in full daylight sitting on a hill with a powerful rifle and powerful optics and a laser range finder. One is a much more effective killer than the other.
