    I hunt with my gun during rifle season – but really only because here in Nebraska, we can’t use bows during rifle season. ](*,) We can, however, use black powder during rifle season and that’s what I may do this year. :thumbup

    I prefer bow only. But sometimes there are just too many mouths to feed.

    my first year last year was bow only you could say, i went two days of with my shotgun and got the bow back out. this year with all the money im spending on a new bow and acc. shotgun season is pretty much an afterthought already. but i dont seem to mind, im all alone on private land and i believe bowhunting harnesses more of your hunting skills as well asmaking all of your senses that much more keen. you have to be on your toes when you hunt with a gun but you have to be on point on your A game when bowhunting simply because of the distance of the shot. all of us prefer a 20-30yd max shot on a broadside deer and you gotta be pretty sharp, here the deer are so skittish from all the hunting pressure, one move your dead.

    when im bowhunting i kinda feel like a sniper laying in wait till the target presents the perfect shot but yet you cannot move for fear of blowing your stealth mode. maybe i just get that into it :-B #-o :D :D

    I hunt with a bow or not at all.

    I do use my Browning Citori for sporting clays occasionally, because I lose too many arrows trying to hit them with my bow….. [=}=]

    In my old age ( :whistle ) I’ve come to appreciate bow hunting over shotgun season (no rifles in Illinois). But I still go out with the trusty 870 when firearm season opens.

    I shot an Elk with a 270 a long long long time ago. I have only bowhunted for the last ten years. I have to say with a bow is about it for me :thumbup I have killed pigs and a Blacktail buck so far with my bow. This year hopefully a big Bull Elk :thumbup (to start with) :D

    I prefer hunting with my bow.Several reasons.

    A) it’s warmer during archery season.
    B) you have the woods pretty much all to yourself.
    C)the seasons here for bow are 5 months long.
    D)Not to take anything away from hunting with a gun,but to me getting a deer to come within 20 yards or so is a rush that can’t be beatWhen you shoot a deer from 100 yards away…well it just dosen’t do it for me.[/quote:tx7hibyi]

    :agree :cap5

    Our season here in Oklahoma is 3 1/2 months cant beat it…You get to hunt before all the deer are spooked up and theres no pressure on them.

    Gunfire brings back a lot of bad memories. I prefer the silence of bowhunting.

    either bow, trap (with rope), blow pipe, gun…that is my hunting methods I use. But bowhunting is my 1st choice 8D .Hunting season, 12 months a year [=}=] depends on what you hunt.

    BTW, it’s different part of the world :D
