The other day, i had someone tell me that about the only that I could shoot a nice deer would be with a rifle/muzzleloader. I've had this statement said to me many times throughout my hunting career, especially from my grandfather. But after I shot my last deer with a rifle in 2014, I decided that as long as I am able bodied that I would only bowhunt for large game. I came to the conclusion that I would rather shoot no deer in a season than to shoot a nice buck with a gun. So i just wanted to hear why other people decide to exclusively bowhunt when you could put yourself at a much greater advantage of being a 100 yards away with a rifle.
