Archery is a sporting discipline for a reason. This is truly a sport that requires skill acquisition and promotes your physical development requiring training and experience that must be practiced. With the type of weapon used, they usually hunt medium-sized animals that are harmless to humans and most commonly deer. From a distance to ensure that the target is on vital areas without leaving injured animals. There will only be one chance, so the issue of fast reloading is almost non-existent. You must immediately go in so that the plunder does not run away, suffer, and bleed for a long time. If you have to solve an injured animal that is overtaken, you will have time to recharge in any case. Because the distance is small and the firing rate is irrelevant, the choice of weapon depends only on the experience of the shooter. In the hands of a person who is unfamiliar with the bow well and lacks shooting practice, a crossbow will be more effective and this is the homemade crossbow.
Concerning serious distances, a good crossbow with carefully captured optical sight was capable of hitting a play from eighty meters, and even from a hundred. But not certain. If only because taking wind correction was a difficult task, to say the least. Arrows fly much easier than bullets, due to their large size, fur, and low speed. Unexpected and hurt encouragement. Also in calm weather, accuracy is usually small. This is not a gun that can fit in a half a minute angle.
We must not forget that real hunting is not sniper entertainment but mainly pragmatic food. Therefore, animals should be treated humanely, not causing them suffering. Dangerous animals (such as wild boar) must use firearms. Risking, only having a bow available, this will make sense only in critical cases.
