Re: Do you hunt big game with a bow?

Yes.....I've hunted a longbow/recurve for the past 20+ years......just recently getting into long range shooting. My thoughts were, anybody can shoot a deer from 100 or 150 yards......it's takes a different skill set to get within 20. Well....I put some thought into it and decided it also takes a different skill set to shoot @ 400 + yards.....so I'm developing that one at the moment.

I don't know about the anyone part of being able to shoot deer at 100-150 yards...I know I can't and I don't think alot of folks can either although there are some folks here on LRH that probably can. Hopefully some with far more knowledge than I on the subject will comment.

Re: Do you hunt big game with a bow?

I love both ends of the hunting spectrum, close range with a bow and long range rifle. Two very different skill sets but both very deadly and equally valid.

I mostly hunt elk during the rut with my bow. Having said that I have been busy chasing mulie's during the rut the last few years which has been a total blast. I believe this years bull was #12 with a bow. Only shot a couple with my rifle and that was when I was a youngster.

Antelope, deer, bear, and varmints are my mainstay for the LR stuff!

Just started last year. Really torn between Bowhunting and rifle hunting.

Re: Do you hunt big game with a bow?

I love archery hunting for bears and elk in the rut if you get them while there screaming. I dont get much out of it when you get the silent treatment from elk. I get enough of that when im in trouble at home

I used to chase elk on Mt. Saint Helens with my High Country. Now me and my High Country sit in a ground blind. I'm getting older AND smarter! Four down and ??? to go...
