The person who had the experience with Braveheart is actually a member, and
I joined at her suggestion because I had two FeLV+ cats at the time.

Yes, it is the cruelest blood sport, except maybe with an atlatl, a really
old type spear.  Statistics for bowhunting injuries are over 50% - that
means that for every deer actually tracked and retrieved, another one that
has been shot with an arrow gets away, to die a slow, lingering death (all
depending on where the deer is shot).  A friend in Iowa fed one such deer
with an arrow in the shoulder, he always came to her property and died there
- she and a friend actually took him in a car to a vet.  It took a whole
year for Braveheart to die - she made a video - check it out:

The ones that actually eat the meat are far and in-between!  Most is trophy
hunting!

Bow hunting is CRUEL. It often leaves the poor animal in agony and it dies a
slow painful death.  We had a buck dying in our yard last winter, and we had
to call for someone to put it out of it's misery.  It was horrible and I was
upset for weeks. I still can't stand to think about it.

Hunters don't kill only for food. They also take the very best bucks who
should be left to reproduce. I am so sick of hearing jerks say they are
killing deer to keep them from starving.  BS..... They kill for fun!
