Just do both

I like them both for different reasons.

Arrowing a deer is awesome but it pales in comparion to getting to hunt with my son. So I would have to pick rifle hunting right now.

Truthfully neither is better than the other. They are both so very great. I personally like bow hunting a little better, but I wouldn't say it is better. The reason I like bowhunting better is mainly because the animal has to be closer. It is a little more challenging because of the different variables. Being between 10 and 50 yards from an animal is somuch more exciting than being 150 yards from it. Its a completely diff. adrenaline rush. Hope that helps some.

If I could choose the topic I would probably describe the differences rather than which is better, simply because you can list the facts with the differences instead of all opinion.

I would like to just write about how they are both good because i also love both but the type of essay i am writing has to compare 2 things and state why one is better so thats why i asked why you guys think bowhunting is better. Thanks for the input

Ask this same question in the bowhunting section of this forum you will get tons of input there.

good topic for the paper is how Bow Hunting lets you hunt smaller peices of land. In more Urban area this helps with the population in areas where you cannot hunt with a rifle.

I love them both ..

It is just a preference by the individual. I prefer rifle hunting. I hear of way too many deer being "stuck" and being lost.

I greatly enjoy anytime in the woods, so I love both bow and gun hunting. I also want to get a smoke stick so I can try that out. The more flexible you are, the more likely to be a very successful hunter.
