I like using a compound bow. Something with about 50-60 pounds of string tension is enough for most animals. Of course, I've never shot bears or anything, but that sort of bow power is overkill for rabbits and birds and small deer.

Crossbows and rifles are the easiest, but there's something fun about shooting a bow.

Nobody hunts large animals with a glock? I'd love to see that. It'd be pretty funny.

Nowadays, I pretty much just fish. I haven't had a bow in a while, although I would like to get another one.

Well I never used a 9mm Glock but I did use my 10 mm Colt Delta Elite pistol to take down deer before. The 10 mm it chambers does pack a little more punch then most 9mm though.

Also real men refuse to use any less then 100 pound draw weight bows. If it was good enough for English Archers it's good enough for you.

TBH I only use the lever because visibility in the thick woods I hunt in is around 30-60y. I also use my .308 T/C pistol because it's less bulky.


Yeah the C14 is a fine rifle, though I always get odd looks from the other guys for using my military issue sniper rifle to kill game with. Though hunting on the open plain like we do a long range rifle is usually a necessity.

She's cost me an arm and leg though. Bought a new scope for her just recently, set me back 5k. Damn fine scope and now I can manage sub moa at 1300 meters fairly easy now thanks to that scope.


Well yeah, a loaded hunting rifle usually weighs 7.5lbs not 17. Lol but everyone carries what they like, so it's whatever.

What scope you using? I can't think of anything more expensive than S&B or US Optics which (usually) run 3500-4500.

Also, I don't like .50 as much as I like .338- but I dont' own either because the ammo is too expensive for my cheap ass. Maybe once I get my contracting job I'll shell out some big bux for a barrett mrad or something.

Well, many Mongol recurve bows had draw weights approaching 200 and some had even greater draw weights. Might as well try 300 while you're at it. And go tiger hunting with a katar.

.30-06 for deer, i have a vortex scope on it and i love it.

for elk i use a 300 Winchester Magnum with a leupold.

i hunt in Nevada Area 10 Ruby Mountains. gorgeous area if you arent familiar with it.

i dont really buy meat at the supermarket. i prefer a good lean cut of something i can provide with my own efforts.

its like a vacation every other year ( whenever i can draw a tag ha )

For Washington State I use my PSE Beast compound bow. Over in Idaho use either my 30-06, 30-30, or 45-70; but mostly the 30-06. For ducks I use a mossberg 535 pump 12 ga. Got my 11th dear last September.

The vast majority of people in the world can't draw a 100 lb. compound. Also as someone who loads his own ammo the 10mm is actually on par with a .357 mag.

I mean....people CAN draw them, certainly by using their whole bodies, but aiming such a bow is an entirely different story. A 50 pound composite is enough to take on almost anything in North America. And don't Olympic bowmen use 50 pound bows? I'd probably focus on getting more lethal broadheads rather than doubling the draw.

The most I can draw is 90, but there's no way I can aim that thing. I'm focusing entirely on keeping it drawn, even with the pulley system on the bow helping to reduce the amount of strength I need to exert to keep it drawn.

Makes me really understand how crazy it is that ancient warriors could shoot bows with 200 pound draw weights accurately while riding horses in combat. Primitive man was an entirely different beast.
