Bow for me all season. Deer-turkey. I might pick up a gun next year for predator hunting.
Joined: 4/18/2005i put in for mainly bow hunts or any weapon hunts here in New Mexico, but for animals like Oryx, if I draw a depredation hunt, I bring along the rifle as they are far and few between, the range depredation also use rifle..
but i use bow for almost everything else, other than coyotes
im going to try to bow hunt only this year this is the first year ive got to bow hunt in a long time so im going to enjoy it
Good! You should be putting some big points up for our team.
I like to bowhunt, but in MD we can bow hunt from 9/15 to 1/31. I like to mix in black powder and gun when in season. I never kill enough with my bow and I donate to FHFH. So, I use a gun when I can.

I put six in the freezer last year and I’ll have none left by the time deer season opens.Bow only for the last 10 years but I am changing it up a bit this year. I’m buying a Remington 870 Camo Turkey 12 ga 3 1/2″ mag with a rifled barrel for deer and a red dot scope.
Bow hunting is awesome, I just want to add a little variety to the mix. Guns are pretty cool too ya know.
Joined: 8/13/2007I look forward to opening day of bow season every year and try and hunt at least 2 or 3 days a week ( or until I run out of tags ) work permitting We have a long season here in Delaware opens Sept 1st and goes till Jan 31st I always bring my bow during guns seasons just in case the urge hits meI used to bow hunt until gun season and then wear them out with my old .308.
At this point its mostly about being there, than killing something, so I only hunt with the bow.
Joined: 10/14/2006I have to say none of the above. It really depends on how I am feeling. The last 10 years though it has been mostly bow. I have to say I get the same feeling no matter what trigger I pull though
Joined: 4/5/2006This will be my 3rd season bowhunting and I haven’t carried my 308 in the woods since. I do still like to hunt with my smokepole on occasion, however, last year carried along my bow as well everytime I toted my BP rifle. I guess last season it was about 85% bow and 15% BP. Something about alll that smoke when you shoot is still pretty cool to me.
Joined: 2/17/2006i only hunt rifle when i hunt a large field or clear cut or when someone takes me on their lease to hunt a large food plot or something
95% BOW from SEPT. 15th til JAN. 1st
