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.
