I probably would not endorse hunting even to that extent if it were not for the fact that hunters are the greatest force at stopping anti-gun nuts (the opposite of me) from gaining the majority and imposing more and more ridiculous anti-gun laws.
Apparently, this impotent ass began with a crossbow and needed a rifle to complete the act. Not only inept, but unqualified to claim the title of legitimate hunter -- as so many are these days. I would wager our root canal man does not have a military background where shooting goes in both directions. These types generally are cowards trying to prove to themselves that they are not.
Frankly, if the guy wants a real trophy hunt, I would be happy to offer him one .... but, I suppose that would be politically incorrect. Anyway .... he should be pitied as well as scorned ....
Rifles, for instance, often have telescopic sights with range finders or laser sights. Populations of wild game are at the highest levels they have been in decades. It is amazing how tame many wild animals have become because they live in such close proximity to "humankind."
Way beyond that, I can remember Thanksgiving dinners in the past where an assortment of wild game shot and dressed by me while still a boy was a thoroughly enjoyed part of the menu and appreciated just as much as the farm-bred turkey which was the centerpiece of the meal.
