Trad bow hunting is an addiction. Itís the hardest thing i have ever tried to master. Little crap bucks will become trophies with a wood bow in your hands. When you switch back to the compound you will feel like you are hunting with a gun.

I love to get close to the deer, like reach out and touch them with the arrow in your hand close. I like meat too and will hunt with what ever gets the job done.
usually the outside temp and weather dictate what I hunt with.

I'm impressed with all the bow only hunters, from what I've heard it is not easy.

I haven't killed a deer with gun since 1998. Bow only for me but I'm totally fine with the next guy using a cross bow, muzzle loader, shotgun or rifle. To me it's all about the hunt and you should enjoy the hunt with the weapon of your choice.

Until I got my AR10 308, I was bow all year long. That rifle is just too much fun to be left in safe

I will bow hunt pretty much all year...unless I am low on meat in the antlerless season, then I will bring out the gun for a meathunt.

Just my preference, nothing more, nothing less.

Since I hunt my buddy's place.. bow only. Always take a rifle to hunt pigs at night.. but he bow hunts all year so its easy for me to do the same.

Passed on a rifle only place this year.
