Archery question

I have a huge problem with the "row for bow" system. Even though,
apparently, that is what it does indeed state in the book, it totally goes
against the rest of the entire system. I DO NOT agree that guns and bows
are "point and pull" weapons. I took one too many archery classes to
believe that.

I have to believe that if I KNEW WHERE to shoot a deer to kill it I would
be more likely to be ABLE to do so. Alternately I will share my
ACTUAL "hunting" experience. I shot a bird once 7 times and it just
wouldn't die. I was at point blank range for shots 2-7. I did not become
an "expert" just because I was close as the "row for bow" would suggest. If
a gun (or BOW) uses a BL 16 it is the same as saying they suddenly become
as expert as a combat experience 12 veteran, who has +2 bonuses. I simply
do not see this as real in any way shape or form.

Also, killing light uses a successful attack roll to kill the person... um,
what, pray tell, base line do you use on this "point and pull" weapon? I
use OCV v. DCV... (the same thing I use for ALL OTHER COMBAT)
