I do both bow and muzzleloader. Got into muzzleloading because of my dad. Now I have a son and daughter who are both getting into hunting and want to go gun hunting with dad.

Bow and rifle here. We can't bow hunt thru rifle season so if I didn't rifle hunt also I'd have to sit at home for 9 days. I'd go insane.

In the past Ive done it all. But this year Im not using a ML and if my blessings continue with a bow, the Rifle may stay in the cabinet also.

im with GR8.......

bow season i bowhunt...

rifle season i typically rifle hunt, though ive carried the flintlock, might take the slug gun if i get it scoped this season, one day, i may even take the bow...one day i'll get me a revolver too...

flintlock/late archery, i take the flintlock....


many reasons....stand hunting PERIOD in my area after about 10am opening morning is about a lost cause unless you get deer pushed past your stand....just super heavy pressure...could hunt a funnel and probably see deer...but they are going to be skittish and alert...so i leave the bow at home...usually we gather a crew and do some small drives...same with flintlock season...less pressure, but deer were hammered for a 6 week bowseason, small game, fall turkey, 2 week rifle season etc....possible for late season archery hunting, but ive taken the flintlock stand hunting numerous times in the late season and never seen a deer...we gather a crew and drive that season as well most of the time...


i enjoy it all...rifle hunting is loosing its spark with me, though i still love gathering with the crew and putting on some good ole drives....thats why im itchin to scope the slug gun...just a change of pace....ive eaten more tags than ive filled....but like to atleast kinda stay with the program...and enjoy it all...

Ya I do bowhunt most of the time. But when gun season rolls around I don't stay home.. I love to hunt so I head to the woods with a pistol usually.. Sometimes a slug gun...
