Kevin, I don't know what facts you are talking about, but as a matter of fact several people at my local forum (trail riders mostly) were almost hit by the bow, and one by the bullet. Unfortunately it very much depends on where you live. Many people around here are rude towards others and don't care much if the animal or other person will get in troubles (BTW, it's very true about driving as well).
