    I like my .308, 280,and 300WSM all with Nikon 3X9X50 Buckmasters on them. I don't consider it too easy. I just love to smell that smokeless powder in the early morning.

      I like to bowhunt and scout in Oct and then close the deal in a mid November bow stand with a 16 gauge 870. Buckshot is a lot more forgiving and you can shoot moving deer broadside in the brush at bowrange. You get the thrill of getting close and lethality of a modern firearm. If you think of all your bow hunting encounters you can think of some instances where you could have taken a nice buck using the virtues of buckshot, when letting an arrow go almost, but didn't occur. That buck that kept stopping behind cover, or wouldn't stop comes home with you. I have a 100% recovery rate using this buckshot in your bow hunting stand method. Cheers, I can't wait .

        I am first a bowhunter,followed by handgun,shotgun and then muzzle loader if I have any tags left by then. I'd rather hunt them with a camera truthfully, but they are really hard to skin afterwards.

          Archery, muzzleloader and rifle in that order. In MN that means deer hunting from mid-Sept to Dec. 31st. Yea!

            i spend far more time deer hunting with a bow in my hands...but i think i enjoy deer hunting more with a rifle just because when i travel to PA to deer hunt its with a rifle...i enjoy hunting there more then MI just because of the terrain, hunting is harder and the shots are always more difficult because of lots of brush and the general terrain of the hills. much more exciting in my opinion.

              Deer Hunting is a Joy for me...so the 7mm/08 is just fine on N/Fl. Whitetails.

                I prefer a 12 gauge shotgun that my late grandpa gave to me. Im "Carrying on the tradition" as he said the day he gave it to me.

                      Stick and string... and in a pinch I'll pull out the .270

                        ^ckRich, Is that similar to Rambo's pig hunting in First Blood?

                        I hunt deer with a 30-06, but I'm willing to expand my horizons a bit. I'd like to try everything at least once... slug or bow perhaps this year.

                        Does hitting a deer with your car/truck count?

                          i like to bow hunt because with a gun you can shoot a deer 100 yds+ away and with the bow you get up close and you feel better when you get a close shot. I think it is a little bit more "outdoorsy" if i say so my self
