It seems to me that if I eat meat I should be willing to kill an animal rather than have someone do it for me or pretend they grow on trees. I try to rationalize that deer will suffer a worse fate starving and/or being eaten alive by coyotes, which I've seen, pretty gruesome. That said, I do most of my hunting with a compound bow or crossbow so to be honest I would part with my rifle if I had to. I don't think that's necessary though. It seems a bolt action rifle is enough weapon for most real hunters. I also have no problem with 5 or 6 shot revolvers for those wanting personal protection.
i don't think you have won any awards for being honest person of the year.
you are such a bull$hitter and a liar.
