Do you prefer to hunt with a Bow or a Rifle?

Neither. It's a handgun for me.
Handgun hunting interests me very much. When I am a little older (only 13) I am hoping to get a .357 or .44 Remington mag and do a little big game hunting with it. I am also interested in buying something like a Ruger single six .22 L.R or .22 WMR and hunting Squirrels with it.

Looks like the poll shows about 50-50 rifle and bow! However I suspect that is because most hunt with both,along with handguns, muzzleloaders of all types, and some even with a knife, and/or spear!
even in the all rifle hunters there will be several different types that are favored by the different hunters, and for different types of game animals, and hunting methods.
I personally have hunted with all the types and tools mentioned above, but my favorite is S/S double rifles for everything from cottontail to Hippo. So I suppose what I'm saying is, all hunting is good, no matter what tool you use. IMO, it is the hunt that counts more so than the choice of tools!DUGABOY1 www.doublerifleshooterssociety.com

A lot of the people on the internet are very serious about hunting. Most people who only start thinking about hunting a week or two before the season use rifles, because they are just worried about putting meat on the table. I put this poll on here to see what the hunting "nuts" on the net prefer. I know that most people use rifles.
