Hello Everyone, My name is Tom. I have been a long time reader of this forum. I am hoping for some of you to help me out with a research project I am doing for college. I am studying the ideology and techniques of the hunting subculture. I need to gather a wide variety of points of view from different hunters. All names will be changed and strictly confidential. Please write as much or as little as you want. Thanks again guys. 1. How do you maintain your skills under pressure? 2. How do you personally view archery hunting? 3. What special skills or techniques need to be developed to become an effective hunter? 4. What do you think is the biggest misconception you hear when talking with people who do not hunt? 5. How concerned are you with safety while archery hunting? 6. On a scale of 1 - 10, how important is your bow to you? 7. What is your reaction when you finally hit a deer with your arrow? 8. Who taught you how to archery hunt? 9. What do you think about while hunting in the woods? 10. How often do you practice and what do you do to maintain proficiency? 11. Do you view archery as a sport or an art?
