I'm more of a " you can't eat the antlers" type hunter... I dont think I've even gotten a buck through the years.. lol if its brown.. its down.. I hunt to fill my freezer. Dont get me wrong.. I'd love to get a big buck.. but.. in my neck of the woods.. their kinda rare, and I'm not a patient man! lol

I am more of a bow hunter. its warmer, the deer get closer, and its more of a challenge.

We usually shoot 50-75 yds. and practice up to 120. It takes too much damn patience to get within 40 yds or less. I still shoot my old [censored] Fred Bear compound. I am really considering a new Bear in the next year or so. The Matthews and Bowtechs are very nice, but for the price I can do just as well with a Bear.

I bow and gun hunt - My bow is always more fun to shoot and take a buck with because it is more challanging but I also enjoy using my shotguns (no rifle's in Lower Michigan) - I have my eye on a few big boy's this year already so well see if i can get lucky and shoot one or two of them
