This is the Christmas edition of the Economist, extra thick with lots of punditry. They had a three page article on the joys of bowhunting in America. They quoted Teddy Roosevelt, they talked about a hunting trip in Wisconsin, about legalizing cross bows. Hunting is good for the ecology, helps cull excess deer, all sorts of good stuff.
But only if done with a bow. Using a gun is unsportsmanly, crass, and bad for the environment. Only the archer is a pure hunter. I suppose this represents the anti gun opinions of the Economist.
