Default Bow or gun, rub 50 yards behind blind

We havenít seen our big bucks on camera yet but I saw this 50 yds behind my bow blind, fresh as of yesterday. I canít see this area from my bow blind but can from a rifle blind. Bow or rifle in the morning? Hunt County and wet/raining in the morning... canít decide! The tree is 3-4Ē dia.

I get way more satisfaction and fulfillment with a bow, killed plenty with a rifle.

I love the excitement of bow hunting but I would not miss out and pass on a rifle shot if that's the only way to get it done. JMO.

It was raining last Wednesday and not wanting to get everything wet I opted to take my rifle

Target buck showed up and I shot him at 22 yds with my rifle

Would have rather shot him with my bow but such is life

Bow always! Only use a gun if your family is literally starving to death!

Bow... find something to attract him in closer than 50 yards to wherever you are comfortable shooting (doe urine, corn, sweet feed, something)

Cant beat shooting one with a bow! Only thing I enjoy better is watching my kids shoot one.
