What MNIM said is more true about fishing than hunting TBH. Trophy hunting is the minority.
Even in the case of trophy hunting, that should be fine as long as you're hunting an overpopulated species because quite frankly, nature doesn't run on mercy.
If you're going to use an environmental standpoint, the environment is very efficient about these things. No part of the deer is "wasted" even if you kill it and just let it lie -- anything that's left over from what you kill just goes back into the environment and goes back into the life cycle. As long as you leave enough individuals to keep a breeding population and keep numbers steady, it really is fine.
The only people who care about the lives of any one individual deer are humans too isolated from said cycle for their own good. If you eat meat, you have no business complaining about the "cruelty" of hunting. Quite frankly, from a cruelty perspective, farm animals have it much worse, especially on modern industrial farms and ranches. At least these guys get to run around and be actual deer in their actual environment until the hunter bags them.
