How many of you guys are hunting this year? What caliber of gun you using? I'm using a 30-30 Win


Its not how you start, its how you finish.

I'm still holding my Mathews bow.

Will probably get the Rem 7mm-08 out in mid November after I return from my annual midwest whitetail bowhunt.

Yes, I hunt deer as often as I can.

We are a pistol caliber/shotgun only state. I just use my 12 gauge 870 when I donít use my muzzleloader or bow.

Really want to get a flintlock and a recurve.

Recurve takes a lot of practice I hear. Have you ever tried it?


Its not how you start, its how you finish.

Yes it does! I shoot my compound bow already three or five times a week. I also teach archery education and love shooting.

I just havenít jumped into buying my own and hunting with a recurve or longbow.


But yes, lots of practice. I am up for the challenge of traditional archery.

20 gauge slug. We can use rifles here, but the shotgun is just what I am used to.

I hunt deer with bow, 12 gauge, muzzle loader, and bow again based on the season order.

Recurve and a .50 cal air rifle. This evening from the house saw one doe followed 100 yards by a buck, then 5 more bucks in back of that along the same line of travel then two more slowly checking where other does had been.
