As a "BOWHUNTER", I hunt with a bow the entire deer season. If it weren't for the "Bow" part....I wouldn't be a deer hunter.

Substitute "gun" for "bow" in the above....and tell me that is your preference and I'll tell you "kudos". It's simply a personal choice.

Alot more satisfaction getting it done with a bow. But during the shotgun seasons I will be out there just the same...

I choose to give up the gun because essentially I have. The only places I really have to gun hunt in Western PA are invaded by the masses on opening day and it's just not fun anymore. I spent all morning in a stand and had a road hunter tell me I shot her buck out from her. Funny thing is, she would have had to shoot past me to get it. Just really got to me. Haven't gun hunted since.

I think I took out the rifle twice last year. I bowhunted the rest of the time.

I prefer to bow hunt, and do alot. I dorifle hunt and m/l hunt as well, but often take my bow out during those seasons too. It really depends on my mood and the situation of my hunt. Now that I am spending more time hunting with my kids, when we go its been with the gun. If I am solo, 80% of the time its with the bow.

Clear as mud, right? [8D]
