Know what you are hunting: Doe, meat or horns

I have never been a gun hunter, only a bow hunter. A fellow on here suggested I shoot the first 10 legal deer that present me a shot. He said I would learn so much by doing this... and then I could get picky.

I took him up on it and arrowed 10 deer in my first three years of deer hunting. 5 does, 5 bucks. He was right, I learned a ton about hunting!

You might try it as well.

Take shots at calm deer, and be very careful with taking shots at deer that are "spooky".

I have bowhunted more than most people I know. I have missed more deer than most people I know. I have enjoyed deerhunting than most people I know. To see a deer while hunting is GREAT. To get a shot at a deer is the GOAL. To kill a nice deer with a bow is a BONUS. I love to hunt with my shotgun but my bow is what keeps me going. Sometimes I take both to the woods.

You'll love it. I haven't killed alot of deer with a bow. But the rush you get get when you do get one close for a shot and then make the shot is alot better than a gun to me. IMO
