    Not yet
    I still haven't evolved to the point of using a bow during gun season. It is hard enough for in my opinions so by the time guns season rolls around I am ready to put the skill aside and tip the odds more in my favor. I would just not be able to live with myself if the biggest buck I have ever seen ambles by out of range. Im just a wimp.

    Well, actually
    gig, I bought me a new bow 2 seasons ago, and haven't put a deer down with it yet. But I'm probaby going to spend more time in a tree with it than my 7 mag because I'll be hunting public land.

    Hopefully, I'll blood the bow and knock the jinx off of it ....

    Bow
    I bow hunt as much as I can. Depending on what area I am hunting during rifle season. I have even taken both gun and bow during the gun season having the gun as back-up just in case the deer is over 50 yds or so. I have also added a recurve into the mix(fun)! If I had more property to myself or others that were really into bow hunting I would consider doing it full time...

    Depends on the day....
    After having a terrible time finding a deer, I will never bow hunt in the rain no matter what seasaon. The blood trail couldn't be found, the terrain was rough and the woods were thick. Hunting over a clear cut with a rifle is a favorite of mine. Some areas are so thick they just have to be bow hunted. It's Bow Season all of the time for me, but there are days and stands I do enjoy hunting with a rifle.
