While I think this is an asinine question that serves no other purpose but to stir a pot, simply put, I hunt. Whether I choose to use my bow or my shotgun to harvest a deer, it is my choice, but my goal is the same -- harvest a nice deer and have a story to tell with friends over a beverage of his or her choosing. We are all hunters -- regardless of weapon.

We splitin hairs here? I am primarily a traditional bowhunter BUT on average I hunt 1 to 4 days a year with a gun not always many years I never pick up iron.
All but 1 of my out of state hunts has been with the bow (Took my sidelock ML for Elk once).
I hear guys who toy with the idea of hunting with traditional bows say "But what if the biggest buck of my life shows up and thats all I have?"
MY big fear is he shows when I have a gun; twice I have let good bucks walk past because I just couldn't shoot them with a shotgun stupid I know but sometimes thats just how I am.

Somebody’s panties are on a little too tight.

How is this question meant to stir the pot?

Some guys are more interested in the archery aspect of hunting and other guys are more focused on the deer that they harvest. There have been years where my focus was on using traditional archery equipment and I really didn’t care if I shot a monster buck or not. During those years I would have considered myself a bowhunter. Other years I have been more focused on harvesting a specific buck and I used every legal means to get the job done. If I was asked this question then I would have considered myself a deer hunter.

Our interests and goals change as we mature as hunters. This question is not divisive in any way.
It is simply a way to see where everyone is at in their journey.

I bowhunt deer and turkeys. I also hunt them with a shotgun. I prefer bowhunting, but have been more successful with the gun so far.

Bowhunter, I just like the weapon, I own guns and I'm not against using one to hunt, I just don't anymore. My first season I used a rifle on a hunt in NY, after that it's been bow for the next 25 years.
