I appreciate your thinking, but it may be a bit uninformed. Real cruelty is being raised in a cage, like most of big Ags model. More than 300 head an acre on many ranches, being fed a mono-crop diet and full knowledge of your impending death, often done by the "hands" of a machine.
When impatient, poorly practiced, undisciplined people participate in pretty much anything.

One of the reasons I hunt is for the thrill of the stalk and kill, why is that bad? We are animals. should we not engage in sex if we do not want children? Or engage in any other "animalistic" behaviors because we no longer "need" to? We are here to experience reality not answer all its questions.
to the op i hunt with a 60# recurve with carbon shaft arrows and modern broadheads, i am quite capable with it, i only take shots i know i can make and try not to cause undue suffering to the animal. my shot to kill for large game is nearly one for one, small game not so much but thats a different story.
