Hello. I'm new to hunting on the whole. I've been firing my bow and casing the areas I'd like to hunt for the last three years. I can consistently hit a 4" target at 30yards (I'm aware it would be different with adrenaline and so on), but still wouldn't take a shot over 20yards on a living animal. I chose to bow hunt because of all the additional work and effort required. Not to mention the hope of putting meat in the freezer. NOT to fill it. I've been an outdoors man for some time and I'd like to take it more seriously to have a healthy legacy to hand down to my children besides whatever wealth I may or may not acquire in my life. I have plenty of experience with guns. Shooting trap and clays. Targets at 150-300 yards with a rifle. I don't see myself being convinced hunting with a gun is sporting. I'm sorry. Personal opinion. I'm aware I'll likely change my mind when I get hungry and will still struggle with it. The question I have is one of ethics. I understand that why it's unethical to shoot a migrant or upland bird on the ground with a gun. 100%. Can I ask why it's unethical to do so with a bow? Till I got my migrant bird license I'd never really considered it and now I'm at a total loss. Literally everything we hunt, we wait for the best chance for the most ethical clean killing shot while giving the prey a sporting chance. Is a bow not the most sporting chance for any animal? Is a miss or graze less of a worry when the bird is on the wing? Is an hour long stalk and shoot of a goose on the shore not more of a hunt than the hunter in the blind with bird calls and shotguns? I've loaded up my jeep and had to stop. I feel like its okay. I'm not using calls. Not using decoys. Not hunting baited ground. Not hunting a nest. Not hunting birds on the water. Just did good old fashioned research on the area and would like to see if I can get Christmas dinner for my family the old way. Please be kind as I am new. I trust the opinions of the people on this forum and have found a wealth of information on the web show. There are so many different opinions of shooting birds on the ground and it always goes to guns or a series of ridiculous scenarios and anecdotes. Help! Lol. Thanks very much.
