    I think variables other than archery are more important. Different hunting styles come into play, bait, hounds, or spot and stalk. Early season bugle, late season winter range.

    Large ranches with large numbers of undisturbed game, states with large numbers of a certain species, compared to where they are scarce.

    A lot of that going around! Would you say that was more of a bait set, or a rut hunt?gun)

    I know this is an old post but it caught my attention. I wonder how many people that voted bighorn and mountain goat actually ever hunted either? my vote would go to turkey hunting but only if you are not sitting in a fancy blind!
