I think your decision depends on what you are wanting out of the hunt. Are you looking to fill the freezer mainly? Take the gun, put some meat in the freezer and be done.
If you are like most of the guys and gals here and are hunting more for the experience and the outdoors I believe you would appreciate a bow hunt more. The experience of making a clean kill and recovery is unmatched in my mind.
