      Bow, the connection to your deer is so much greater and it is so much more of a challenge. Bow without a doubt.

          Rifle, I didn't spend all that time at the loading bench and at the range for nothing.

                Definately a bow. When you use a bow, you have to get much closer to the deer and you learn much more about the deer in order to know where it will be. Harvesting a deer is a much more rerwarding experience because you put so much work into it.

                  As much as I admire successful bow hunters I nearly always hunt deer with a rifle. Elk? bow and rifle, but totally different deal.

                    I like rifles. I've seen too many people shoot and wound deer and other game with bows and shotguns. I know a lot of you bow hunters probably don't do this and are good shots but even the few deer that are wounded and get away make me feel bad for them.

                        Deffinately bow. Even though I have not killed a deer with a bow, nothing beats the adrenaline. Rifle is much easier, but bow is more fun.

                          You feel mare connected with the outdoors when you use a bow. Everything has to be done perfectally with bow hunting, and I absolutely love the challenge.

                                I agree with a lot in this article. My comment is, make a good first shot and the importance of a second shot declines.

                                It has changed my approach to life for sure. I've always had a boat but I sold mine a couple of years ago. It just plain wasn't worth it anymore and...

                                On my farm in Oswego County I walked to deer, ducks, geese, turkeys, and bass fishing. I watched eagles and ospreys, but I had to put up with Coumo, and...
