- Video games take place on a small screen. Hunters are often required to keep an eye on huge chunks of real estate, often at a great distance.
- Video games give you feedback instantaneously. Ma Nature gives you feedback over many hours, or days, or sometimes never.
- Video games can be manipulated by the gamesman. Nature can't.
- Video games are played indoors, where you are not hot or cold, and require no physical effort. Hunters are almost always hot or cold, and often exert a great deal of physical effort.
- Video games require no actual courage. Hunting sometimes does.
- Video games are not real. Hunting is as real as life and death.
I'm glad I was born when I was.
