if deer hunting were only with bow and arrow?
I'd venture to bet that there's an equal percentage of 'morons' in any season. All kidding aside, I believe we'd have a lot more trouble with over population and skewed sex ratio's. I use both gun and bow (mainly a bow though) and I wouldn't have it any other way. Both forms of hunting are enjoyed by more than just morons.i'm saying it would be totally different.. for the better.. get rid of the opening day pumpkin patches morons.....
:yeahthat: well said.With or without baiting? Since 70%+ of bowhunters use bait, it's pretty hard to envision what the success rate would be. Probably closer to the 8-10% that is was historically, prior to the advent of compounds and baiting (they kind of went hand in hand) instead of the 32% success rate that archers in Michigan currently enjoy. The overpopulation problem would become so critical within a couple of years that my guess is that non-hunting methods would have to be employed to decrease the herd. The DNR would pretty much close up shop due to lack of funding, too. It would not be a pretty picture, that's for sure.
