A friend of a friend has gone"primitive" in his techniques for hunting whitetail - will only shoot a recurve using a "spot and stalk" technique. He gives us grief for shooting pulley bows.

Has your friend ever killed a whitetail deer this way?

I ask because, although it can be done, it is outside the skill level of 99.9% of hunters and shooters. Elk, well, maybe. Even they're tough, but it's a whole lot easier than whitetail. Elk just aren't as wary, generally.

Stalking to within recurve range of a mature whitetail deer is ridiculously difficult. Most hunters would have trouble stalking within easy rifle range.
Still happily answering to the call-sign Peetza.
The problem, as you so eloquently put it, is choice.
