1) Headshots (Although I though shooting through the chest is more humane, but I Can't think of a word for that?), bowhunts
2) camps, roasts, spits,
3) Teppanyaki?

Actually a clean shot through the eye is typically the most humane way, shots through the chest tend to not be as clean or quick kills. Fun fact, and definitely the reason we're all here.

ZZ's right as regards where hunters are advised to aim for clean kills. The heart and lungs represent a relatively large and vulnerable kill zone; not everything on the head would constitute a kill shot and skulls are tough to get through. Center mass, not fancy trickshots that you'll most likely miss and leave a deer wandering around with its jaw blown apart.

Happy hunting!

I was taught differently, but I was also taught by someone that hadn't hunted since the 80s

Guess it just hinges on what's considered "typical." There do exist like professional or semi-professional deer sharpshooters who use infrared or thermal imaging (they're allowed to hunt at night), high-powered rifles, and other assassinish kit to efficiently run culls, and my understanding is that many of those ghostwise motherfuckers routinely take headshots, cuz yeah, if you hit it's a cleaner kill.

But at least nowadays, certainly in the Northeast but I'm pretty sure everywhere, a casual sportsman intentionally trying to make headshots would be see by most conscientious hunters and all qualified hunter education programs as misguided at best, and possibly a worrying ego trip.

Yeah, the more I’m looking it up, the more I’m realizing I was taught a pretty atypical approach lol.

Despite claiming to be an excellent businessman, Gaston has led several businesses into such financial ruin that he has sought legal protection from paying bills.

Something that both Gaston's supporters and critics can agree on is that his behavior creates a sharp break from the "normal" way of doing things.

Not only does Gaston personally engage in self-dealing, he also seems to have a gift for leading those around him into lawlessness and iniquity.

Close! I was keeping the "no one [verbs]" form constant, so abrupt doesn't work. I had something like:

No one bankrupts like Gaston!
No one disrupts like Gaston!
No one abuses his power and corrupts like Gaston!

I'll give it to ya since ZZ seems not to want to take a turn.
