Well since I can only hunt with a bow I will hunt the whole season with a bow. What you older people (over 16) that can hunt with a gun.

I used to gun hunt, and still will for hogs on occasion but it is getting less and less frequent. I just enjoy bowhunting so much more.

Well If I am lucky enough to get my Pa doe tag and a Buck in Rifle Season (which means no buck in bow season in PA). I will doe hunt the rest of the week with my bow. Did this last year but was not successful. Tough to get a wary doe in range, late in rifle season on public land.

A burglar got all my guns 20 years ago. Never replaced them. But I have been thinking I need to get another Hawken rifle and plains pistol. I've got a hankering to make some noise and some smoke.

I don't like this statement. If I hunt for a silly online contest and that's the only reason I do it, I have serious problems. I'm not going to risk eating my HIGH priced liscense/tags because I want to win an Online hunting contest that is JUST for fun. I not to mention enter the gun contest too.

I haven't used a firearm since I was 13 years old , always used a bow all season long and only been shot at three times.
Last season was so bad with all of thosecrazy yahoo's with there guns I had to pack up and leave , maybe this year I'll stay home when fire arm and muzzleloading seasoncomes around.

I have not hunted with a bow in the rifle season,but I am considering it and may do some this season.I really like to roam and it is almost a necessity once rifle hunters have pushed deer all over the place in the area's that I hunt.
If I am walking miles and miles and see an animal I want to kill at a distance,I want to go boom and have it be over.
