Default BOW HUNT ONLY/ BOTH BOW AND GUN HUNT

So just wondering who does what. Are you a die hard bowhunter who only hunts with archery tackle. Are you a guy who hunts with a bow and also a gun. or are you a guy who is aa bowhunter 99% of the time, but when the season is running close to the end and you have a tag left out the gun comes.

When it comes to deer hunting, I am pretty much bow only.

There are occasions when I'll go on a man drive or dog drive hunt with the shotgun along with my buddies just to be social and have fun, but when it comes to stand hunting... I'll always take the bow over anything else.

Ducks, turkeys and small game however, they do get the blast treatment!

I shotgun hunt during Illinois 2 seasons. They do not allow us to carry a bow (stupid law IMO), so if you want to deer hunt during those days then you have to cary a gun.

The action gets pretty good during this time, but in my area you almost have to focus more on where the deer will run when spooked instead of where they naturally move.

Probably overhalf of my shotgun bucks were within in bow range.

I hunt bow and rifle. I'm bow through black powder season, then some friends and I do a two week camp where we rifle hunt. For the last part of the season I'll alternate depending on who I'm going with and what they want to do.
