    Bowfishing for carp is fun. Want to try pheasant with a longbow or recurve.

      If your just shooting your bow at deer your missing out on a lot of fun. I shot a monster carp just yesterday. Fun Fun Fun. I shoot a lot of ground hogs, squirrels, rabbits...

            I hunt mostly whitetails with a bow. I do hunt with a rifle and shotgun in season, but way fewer days than Bow. I hunt turkeys, but only a few days a year. Don't do any small game currently. Love to fish for trout and bass. Do a little saltwater fishing as well. Fluke, Striper, Tuna and Shark on occassion.

                I will not shoot at squirrels while on a whitetail stand. Walked in once at noon and sat down. Figured with all the noise, nothing would come in for awhile. So I took a poke at a squirrel. I just missed the head at 20 yards. Arrow stuck in a tree. I went to get it and as i was screwing the tip off i heard a crack and looked over my shoulder to see a big 12 pt looking at me. My bow was 20 yards away and it almost stepped on it as it walked away. Just had to grin and bear it.

                    I love going after carp, birds are also exciting; pheasants,crows,quail, and sometimes even coons.

                      I LOVE to bow fish for carp, just started doin it 2 years ago and now i'm hooked. i also noticed my accuracy improved alot from shooting all year round and shotting at smaller targets.

                        I hunt exclusively for whitetails right now (mainly because I'm too broke to head out west for big game). But when I'm in the woods I'll shoot anything that is in open season. I'm in Ohio, so coyotes are fair game and I'll all about dropping one of those when I get a chance. They're also a great trophy.

                          If you have never tried pheasent hunting with a bow and aroow I suggest you do! You may not hit any but it will be a afternoon of excitement and laughing!

                            I hunt for small game as much as for deer. I've been a small game hunter for my whole life both with a bow and rifle. The shot that stands out in my mind as the best I've ever made is on a Woodcock! Certainly not flying but tucked away in the alders. I had flushed him and I saw where he landed took careful aim and made the shot about 30 yards away. Strange how things stand out as important to me.

                              good comments +1 for all. If it has the word hunt in it I'm game.
