Bow only?

Bow only?

How many of you bow hunt year round?

I started a few years ago and have really enjoyed it. Now that I have lost my lease I don't know if I will stick with it or not, it will largely depend on if I get in another camp or not.

I do use mine off and on throughout the year because some of the places I go are bow only.

We are allowed to use muzzleloaders one or two weekends a year, other than that it is all bows.

I want to but just don't do it. I really enjoy bowhunting more than anything else.

I enjoy bowhunting but I put it down for the gun. In my old club I carried it during gun season every now and then and hunted with it during primitive season. My current place isn't quite good enough to put the gun down for a bow. At least not right now.

I love bow hunting but when its time to bring out the ol 06, I put the bow down. There has been many times I wish I could have traded my bow in for my gun during bow season. I would kick my self if it happend during gun.

i say every year I'm going to bow hunt until I kill one but after a more than a month of watching them walk just out of range I have to get my revenge on opening day :lol:

Last year i said that i was goign to carry my bow only - i ended up putting it down towards the end of the season and broke out the gun...

this year, i say it again - I will bow hunt until I get my first Bow Kill. I have taken my share with a gun and now i am bound and determined to get one with my bow. It is a self commitment i think... I will see if i can keep it up towards the end of this season if i have not accomplished my mission yet. Hopefully, i can take one early so i wont be in the same predicament! :P

I used to, but I got a couple of tickets in June one year and decided to give it up. :W:
