    I do both, at least I carry my rifle and bow when I’m out moose hunting during rifle season………if I have the chance then I’ll shoot with the bow, if I can’t get close enough, then it’s rifle all the way………..too much meat and too little chances to waste an opportunity [=}=]

    100% bow last year. I plan to repeat that again this year. I gun hunted two years and never shot a deer.

    Over the past two seasons with bow only, I have shot 9 whitetails!!! :D

    I haven’t used anything but my bow for four years now. Including squirrels and rabbits. For some reason my rabbit hunting success has gone down a bit. :-k

    I strictly bowhunt deer… I went out one time last year (for first time in life) with my gun… I sat a half hour before deciding it isn’t “real” hunting to me… I went back to the car and got my bow out… However I do use a gun to hunt turkeys (which will now be bow only) and rabbit. I think it is too dangerous to be flinging arrows with my beagle in tow on the rabbit… Would rather suck up the ego than lose my beloved hound… not to mention beagling is a RIOT.

    I gun hunted as a kid but I don’t even own a gun now. I almost bought a shotgun for turkey last year but eating tag soup was worth the experience bow hunting for turkey.

    Bow only except for Bird Hunting. I’d go out with my Rifle if I had to but… I haven’t fired my 30-06 since I’ve been in California!

    Well, then I’m not a real man…….but I’m a meat hunter, and the only beef I’ve bought in the last 2 years has been beef ribs (about 5 packs total) and those frozen beef patties that my wife loves to fix for herself. Other than that, it’s been Moose instead of beef……..and I’m not about to pass on a chance to harvest an animal just because I can’t get close enough to a legal bull with my bow [=}=] (just like I won’t pass on an legal animal in the 1st 5 minutes of season just because there’s still the rest of the season to hunt………. [=}=] )
