Some issues are:
- Bowhunting is inhumane and wasteful.
- Bowhunters do not want to talk about the wounding issue and archery wounding is the most denied problem in bowhunting.
- Wounding and crippling losses are inevitable.
- Shot placement is, for all practical purposes, random due to the difficulty in shooting arrows accurately. There is absolutely no sure way to kill a deer instantly with a bow.
- More often than not, poorly hit deer are lost and not recovered.
- The main cause of infection in the wound is today’s multi-bladed Broadhead arrow
- Almost all abdominally shot deer die a slow death from peritonitis with the average time of death measured in agonizing days or weeks rather than in minutes or hours.
- The use of bowhunting as a method to control deer population densities is ineffective. Bowhunting is not a population control measure; it is a recreational pursuit.
