I've been hunting for 12 seasons.

Bow kills: 15
Gun: Quit counting after 20

Those numbers are stretching several states. I've hunting whitetails in PA, Iowa, Delaware, WV and MD.

If you must list gun kills, be sure to list them seperately, thanks.
Well, since I don't have to,I won't list mine.

How many years have you been hunting ?
Since you sound like you don't want gun info, this is my second year bow hunting.

How many deer have you killed ?
Nine and counting. Seasons not over yet.

I have no idea just doing some basic figuring I'd say close to 60-65 deer over the years. I've been hunting all my life but really didn't start killing deer till my teens so I'd say about 25-30 years of deer hunting. Probably about 20-25 of those were gun kills.

I just never bothered to keep count........

I am starting my 52nd year Bowhunting-I have never biggame hunted with a gun.
Elk-2Bulls, Wild Hogs 15 (I think), Sheep-2, Goat-1, Mule Deer 13, Black Bears 2 P&Y (could have been at least 7 more but was picky) Fallow Deer-2, Buffalo-1 Axis deer 1, Whitetail Deer over 100 (at least 60 Bucks-4 good ones) & ifI shot all that I let pass would be many more, Bull Caribou 1. Lots of small game with a bow-rabbits, squirrels, grouse,Pheasant, coons, groundhog, gophers, porkepine, snakes, frogs.
Ishot my 1st deer with a 45# Eddings recurve, wood arrow & MA-3 blade in 1958 at 35 yds. & the DOE went 30 yds. doublelunged, complete pass through. I never even thought of gun hunting after that.
I've had & am still on a great journy. 2 hogs & 1 Doe so far this year & looking to fill that Buck tag after shotgun season. Pic is Nov. 26th 2008 day b/4 Thanksgiving. I have a great wife, family, kids & friendsto be thankful for.
I have experienced many bowhunting adventures that many will only dream of.I am Blessed...Good luck fellas in your Bowhunting or Hunting journy.

That is impressive! May you get at least another decade of good hunting in!

As for me, I have shot enough. Mostly does or cripples with a gun, mostly bucks with a bow.
