What is your first choice of what to use? What is it ex. what brand, cailber, draw weight etc. etc. And did you harvest anything with it this season?

Mine is always the bow.
This year it was a Hoyt xt2000 cam 1/2 magnatec set at 63 pounds gold tip arrows with slick trick 100 grainers. I took this years buck with it also.

I use a FA 454 revolver. I've taken antelope, deer (whitetail and mulie), bears and even a moose. I can't seem to get an elk, but I will someday.

For blacktails, Rem .243.

And yes, I got my buck.

I have come to prefer a bow.
This year, I harvested a deer with a bow and one with a rifle as well.
I will hunt predominantly with a bow next season...perhaps solely with a bow.
I took one on Oct. 1 with my old PSE, but I will be using a new Parker next year.
I also took a deer with a Marlin 44 Magnum lever action.

Well, .30-06 is my choice. It is a pump so easy reloader. My extra is Rem. .243 bolt.

Harvested a 5 point with the .30-06 this year.

I hunt with a bow until I realize my stupidity after he walks by about 45 yards. That's when I get the 3006. (He has not walked by again, of course) But I prefer the stick and string.
