Unhappy respect

I think we owe in to the game we pursue and to our hunting heritage to show it a little respect. If you are a meat hunter that's fine. If you are a trophy hunter and utilize the meat that's fine but we need to show a little more respect by doing all we can to insure a quick and ethical kill. There needs to also be a little more respect after the harvest. Its that lack of respect before, during, and after that gives hunters a bad persona. By even contemplating shooting a deer with a rim fire shows a complete disrespect for the deer, the heritage, "the sport", and hunters. Mutilating game after the harvest is another sign of disrespect, as bad as shooting it and letting it lay and walking away or just taking the head for a trophy. Hunting is on the decline in this country and this type of behavior isn't going to win it any supporters. Or maybe I've got the wrong idea of what hunting is about.
