If my deer weren't so pressured I would never put down the bow. Do does that make me a deer hunter

Rufous, what exactly are you trying to determine?

Your question makes no sense.


It’s a pretty straight forward question. Which is more important to you, the weapon that you use or harvesting deer?

For example . . . .

I consider myself as a Deer Hunter, who uses all legal methods to take game.

Deer hunter, I am a hunter of deer and enjoy all manners of legal deer harvest.

For years I could only be considered a bowhunter, because it's all I used, never hunted with a firearm.

Rufous, just to clarify, only half of the first quote was mine. Yes your question may straight forward, but it could be construed to be somewhat divisive. The "deer" in deer hunter is our common denominator, you may have a secondary connection with someone due to the particular method they prefer, but in the end we are all deer hunters. The more we focus on that, the stronger we are as a group. Not tryin to hammer you buddy, just my thoughts.

Not so young. I use a gun for every thing else.
I just love deer hunting with a bow this season ,I'm going
To use just my longbow.
I guess I've always been a bit conflicted.

I am strictly a Bowhunter. I bowhunt deer in NJ and once out of state. I have bowhunted bear in Canada twice and really enjoyed that. I bowhunt woodchucks and have in the past bowfished too. Also I shoot "indoors" target and in the past NFAA outdoor events. I like 3D tournaments. For me there is something special about shooting a bow and watching the arrow sink into the X ring, or in the pocket on an animal. I like the closeness that a bow requires with game. I enjoy the feeling of a proper shot breaking and seeing the arrow strike home. Just my opinion and your experiences may vary...

I am a hunter, always have been. I hunt with the gun and bow for many differant species. Some only use the bow for deer and to me a real "bowhunter" goes after other species with the bow aswell:thumb_up:

I am a deer hunter whose favorite method to hunt is with a bow. I also hunt with a shotgun on 6 day and a muzzleloader. I just enjoy hunting the whitetail deer period.

IMO there's no shame in switching it up to a shotgun or muzzy once in a while....4 months with the bow and im ready to switch it up, winter bow is tough, to be able to get out there with the single shot slug gun is the same as a muzzy in my eyes. Your only going to get one shot. Drives on the ground I prefer buckshot =)
