Re: Do you hunt big game with a bow?

If i have the oppurtunity during bow season i will try to get them with my bow, but now i want the advantage of the "longer ranges"-sure would be a nice trophy with a bow though!!!

Yes... Been bowhunting for 20+ years. I use a traditional recurve in September to chase elk, then switch to the 338 Lapua in late October for rifle season. Kinda the extreme on both ends. Just love to hunt and shoot.

Layingitdown

I have been a dedicated bow hunter for the past 40 + years. Hunting with recurves
and compounds. I figure Iv'e paid my dues in full to bowhunting.

The challenge is still there, but the body doesn't function as well now as in the
past. When I pasted eighty years, I started slowing down. So to keep the spark
alive, I switched to a half and half program. I hunt early in the fall an Archery
hunt for bear and deer, Later in the fall I switch to the 7mm for Elk and bear.

bowhunt every year. bowtech 82nd airborne and now a insanity cpxl on the way. the 82nd is faster. 60lb 82nd 420g arrow about 280fps at 28.5" dl. just perfect for a broad head. My 70lb 82nd will shoot a 370g arrow at 333fps 29' dl. really love the archery hunting. time to play long range rifle also!

Re: Do you hunt big game with a bow?

Well I am sitting here going through the Oregon hunting synopsis trying to figure which of myriad of rules governing where, how, when and with what do I hunt.

When I only hunted with a bow it was easy. Just choose the bow hunts in the areas you like. But since I added a half dozen or more firearms to the mix, things
have gotten more difficult.

You have a choice of several weapons to choose from, but you can only
choose one for each animal tag. ie, Deer, Elk, and Antelope with a Bow or a firearm. So I have to choose for Deer to bow hunt or rifle hunt, the same for
Elk and Antelope, with all the choices, I am surprised that some one hasn't
come up with a computer program to help with the choice.

I will hunt one of the species with the bow and the other with the rifle.
Prairie goats definitely rifle, if I can draw a tag.

I hunt traditional bow and Easton legacy arrows for elk made the switch from compound 12 years ago.. hunting traditional is the most rewarding your calling has to spot on to get the animal in range and the best part is no range finder and no sights and I shoot off the shelf
