Default % you rifle hunt-%you bow hunt

I was just curious who of you on here rifle hunt as well as bow and the percentage between the two. I personally just started so I would say that I am 75% rifle the past year and 25% bow but I plan on making that about 60bow/40rifle over the next year or so. Rifles will always hold a special spot for me but I have been bitten by the bow bug and I have not been this eager for upcoming seasons since I was a kid!

In the past I was the same as you. The last couple of years I have only taken my rifle out once and my muzzleloader 3-5 times. So I guess you could say I'm 95% bow/10% gun

I will hunt with what ever is in season, a fine shot gun, an accurate rifle or a well tuned bow I put no limitations on my love of the outdoors and all of the game that is available to hunt.

I have gotten to the point, I bowhunt - still kinda funny when it is calm and quiet and the rifles go off around you during gun season -

I almost always take my rifle when I take my 7 year old. I take my muzzleloader for a few days and the rest is archery. I would say I'm 70% archery, 20% rifle, 10% muzzlelader.

1% Gun Hunter (coyote) and 99% Bow Hunter! Bow hunting is an addiction that will soon consume all of your waking hours!

100% bow.

I won't rule anything out, though. Just haven't been bitten by the gun thing. I've taken turkeys with the shotgun in the past....but even that holds no interests for me, now.

I'm sure gun hunting is greatfor those who choose to go that route. I just have zero interest.
