So I have decided to start hunting, not this year but in 2013 so I have time to become proficient in shooting. So my problem is I was originally going to get a new rifle and scope this fall and practice with that. However I already shoot pistols quite a bit and used to shoot rifles quite a bit so I am not as worried about getting my proficiency up on the rifle. Now though I am thinking about taking the money I had set aside for the rifle and scope and put a chunk of it towards a new bow instead. I used to shoot bows a lot when I was younger (20 years ago) but haven't since. I have always wanted to ow hunt because to me it is a lot more sporting than rifle hunting. I know the learning curve and regaining my accuracy with the bow will take longer, plus there are a lot more archery ranges around here than rifle ranges so I would likely get more use out of the bow for the coming months... So any suggestions, am I thinking about this the wrong way? Any advice or suggestions are appreciated.
