Had to vote no, but if money goes good hopefully this year I can start.

Deer Hunter101,

You will enjoy the thrill of taking that first deer with a well placed arrow.

If you are lucky and drop the deer in it's tracks, that's even better. If not
remember to wait at least a half hour before starting to blood trail.
Be sure to look for your arrow first, an arrow that has passed through
the animal can reveal a lot. Even a well hit deer can run a long ways as
much as 200 yards. Keep looking, sometimes they pile up in a small
depression and are hard to see. Don't forget to flag your trail.
Depending on where you hit the animal it is wise to wait three
or four hours.

You probably already know all that, but a reminder now and then is
good for all of us.

Re: Do you hunt big game with a bow?

Yes so do I. There is a whole different mind set to hunting with a bow.
Yes, it's a lethal weapon, but the criteria for shooting it changes a lot from
hunting with a rifle.

That's why we like it. You need to hear the cows talking. The bulls squealing
ever so softly, so that you can sneak in and find the herd Bull. Sound good.Why is it the wind is steady for only about half the stalk and blows in circles just as you get close, scattering Elk all over the hill side.

The snow is leaving the the hunting areas and the spring Bear hunt is on, as
well as Spring Turkey. I will be doing both the middle of next month.

Re: Do you hunt big game with a bow?

I love hunting with a bow. I hunt with an all wood longbow, and have to be very conscious of animal behavior and my shot distance-hence a very low "success" rate for me! Haha. I attempt to make up for it with my rifles in the fall!
