Pick up a rifle during gun season? I haven't killed one with a rifle in years and while it has cost me some really nice deer not having a gun, I wouldn't have it any other way. I just don't get any satisfaction out of shooting them with a gun. Am I alone?

This is my first bow only yr. Tough as all get out. Usually I would have 15 or more does and a buck or two. I have killed six does and two spikes but wouldnt trade those in for a hundred mzl kills. Ain't picked a rifle up in 10 yrs

Although I hunt with a rifle after a couple of deer I'm ready to go back to the bow.

I haven't picked up my rifle this year either, but only because I haven't had time to hunt anywhere except the property around where I work, and it's archery only. I've killed 3 with my bow this year though, and usually I don't kill any more than 1 or 2.

experienced hunters know its not just a bushy white tail, its a big middle finger.

nothing makes a fish bigger than almost being caught

Tournament season ruined me from wanting to bow hunt. All I done last yr to August this year, was shoot my bow. I even brought one of my targets inside the house to shoot on windy and rainy days. When I finished with the ASA Classic in August, I was ready to throw the bow down and not even look at it. I didn't deer hunt until ML season. Bow hunting use to be the ultimate hunting thrill for me and I didn't like gun hunting at all. Now the tables have turned a bit. I like ML best of all, and rifle is starting to grow on me quite a bit. But I get more thrills out of tournament shooting with a bow than I do killing a deer with a bow.

There is something awesome about looking through a clear scope in low light and settling the cross hairs.
