Outcry as Italian hunters told they can shoot deer with bows and arrows
Deer hunters in Umbria could soon be allowed to kill their prey using bows and arrows, causing an outcry among critics who say it will return the Italian region to the Dark Ages.
Long cultivated by sophisticated British expatriates, Umbria is already a favourite with local hunters armed with rifles who stalk through the stunning countryside picking off deer, boar and birds.
But a new regional law would allow them to use medieval-style weaponry to target their game – which animal rights groups believe will lead to a slow, agonising end for the dying creatures.
"Animals struck by arrows can die painful deaths while guns used by hunters have a lethal, immediate effect," said Ofeo Goracci, a regional councillor who opposed the measure.
Bow hunting is illegal in most of Europe so it’s not something I’m too familiar with, but from the videos I’ve watched it seems that a well-placed arrow brings the animal down pretty quickly. I’d love to learn more from people that are familiar with bow hunting since I don’t trust the opinions of AR groups.
I didn’t know bow hunting was illegal. From what I’ve seen, good bow hunters go for very efficient, quick kills, as any good hunter should. Missing by an inch or two could be a disaster though, so I can see why people don’t like it.
i can understand it but any hunter worth anything is going to aim for the lungs or heart, regardless of if they’re using a rifle or a bow. perhaps in order to get an archery license, the hunters would be required to attend a seminar on how to humanely kill an animal with a well-placed arrow? that seems like a good compromise.
I like how everyone seems like they’re dead tired and Thor’s just there going
'om nom nom this is a shawarma nom nom nom'
Notice how Clint and Natasha seemed to have appropriated half of each others’ chairs.
and I think Tony is just realizing that he literally died and was scared back to life by the man to his left
and steve, being the senior citizen, is simply nodding off
Also, the dude behind the counter just nonchalantly making shawarma for the goddamn Avengers like they come in every day.
