Joined: 9/8/2008Just curious who all hunts the muzzle loader, rifle/shotgun season????? I have only been hunting for 2 full seasons now, and I just can bring my self to hunt with anything else but a bow…. During the muzzle loader and rifle seasons while others are out using firearms I’m the only one hunting bow hunting in the bow only areas, of public land. I do own a few rifles, but I just can’t put the bow down. It’s just something about bow hunting.. I can’t really explain it. I feel like I eat, breathe and drink bow hunting. Does anyone else feel the same way?
Joined: 8/19/2004i hunt 99% of the time with my bow. i love it. i hunt public land that is archery only the entire season. but on occasion me and my dad will head to some national forrest land for a gun hunt. then i use a muzzleloader or my rifle. gotta knock the dust of em every once in a while.
Joined: 3/1/2008For deer I use bow only regardless of weapon season. Still like to bird hunt with the shotgun and love small caliber rifles for predators.

Joined: 7/26/2005Both, archery is a solo endeavor its great and all but theres that need to get out with family and friends so there comes the muzzleloaders and rifles.

I always though gun season in Wisconsin is much more of a social event that bowhunting is.

Joined: 4/2/2006Both, because I am a hunter. As much as I enjoy hunting with a bow or firearm, they are both just tools. The quality of the hours in the outdoors does not depend on which tool I’m using.
Joined: 5/8/2008I prefer bow season for a ton of reasons,but I rifle and frontstuffer hunt too.Bow will always be my fav.
Location: FloridaI’ll bowhunt 90% of the time , but when it gets down to the wire and I still have no meat….I’ll carry my 30/06
Joined: 7/12/2007I will use a rifle if I ever draw a late 12A West Kaibab tag in AZ. Other than that, its a bow all the time. I am a better shot with a bow out to 80yds anyway!!!
