How many of you have taken more deer with your bow, than with your gun? I have taken more deer with my bow!

I have only been deer hunting for 5 years, but all 5 of my deer have been with the bow. I just got a muzz. over the summer, so I might hunt with it a time or two during the gun season, but I am almost bow exclusive.

5 with a bow, 1 with a gun. I like shooting them with the bow alot more. I only resort to the shotgun when i'm desperate.

More with my gun. I've shot probably, 8-10 with my gun, and 3 with my bow.

I prefer bow, but have been rifle hunting longer than bow.

I've hunted with a gun for a few years longer than a bow, but it's pretty close to being even. For the last few years, I've shot a couple with the bow each year and not even shot at one with a gun.

I have killed more with my bow, I have been gun hunting the same amount but Have never killed one with the gun let alone shoot at one. I prefer bow by far, It also dont help that I feel more comfortable with my bow at 50 yards than i do with a slug...
