Yup, hunt bow, muzz, sluggun and rifle in that order. Hunt in NJ, PA, NY and Wyo. All big game. Not really one for the fowl or the little critters. I like doing grounds maintenance because it affords me the time to hunt out of state and also to have the time. If I go out West on a DIY hunt I can come back when I either kill something or run out of money and I don't see that happening since I stay in a camper or a tent. How many jobs allow you to do that? Oh, unless the wife tells me its time to come home (but that is a different story)

I don't hunt, but I do shoot guns quite a lot, .22, and .177 air rifles. I also have a compound bow, but don't shoot it often like I should.

I hunt, mostly deer. Shotgun and bow. I have a remington 870, and a buckmasters compound. Only took 1 doe this year season was terrible where i hunt. I had the greatest kill shot i could ask for though, 1 slug right between the eyes at about 30 yards!

I have been wanting to get into to for a while but am around a lot of guy's that just like shooting animal's and watching them suffer when they don't get clean shot's. Yeah the harvest them and eat the meat but if I hunt I wan't to do it to enjoy it and for the challenge..... not to enjoy shooting something.

Don't hunt anymore but like to shoot big time. Everything from olympic grade .177 air rifle through .458 Win mag. Clay birds occasionally with shotgun, and rarely handguns. Recently I have been "building" some varmit grade AR type rifles

I don't bow hunt (bad shoulder joints) but I occasionally use a .50 caliber muzzle loader while deer hunting. I also use several different cartridge weapons as well - it all depends on what I feel like cleaning afterward.
Several ranches near where I live have massive coyote and feral swine problems - so I have essentially unlimited access of upwards of 3K acres for dove and deer hunting as long as I agree to reduce the pest problem.

I hunt deer , ducks and moose. Here in NH any peice of land over 10 acres that is not posted is open to hunting. Fish and game would prefer one asks permission , but it is not the law. Land that is open to the public is taxed at around $40 per acre as opposed to $19 per diam of current market value, so about 85% of the private land in the state is open.
