Being only a one deer province, unless you go to GM or "away" it is hard to get a lot of shooting on big game here in NB to feel totally confident when the moment of opportunity presents itself. Just curious how many have harvested deer with a bow.

Ive got 3 deer and a bear, lot of rabbits and a few partrige, Im gonna get a damn coyote this year with the bow lol thats the plan anyways. Ive bow hunted 3 years so far and no longer own a big game rifle i have a 22-250 and some shotguns, but I dont plan on shooting a deer with a rifle ever again. Moose hunting will be done wiht a bow and second liscence will have a gin beside me if i ever get a liscense. Planning on going to nfld next year and will only be takin the bow, been there before and shot one with a gun but now i wanna get the bow down there.

I have taken 7 bucks with archery gear (don't shoot does) My first bow kill was a real monster 226Lbs. Plus 3 (2 1/2 year old) bucks, and 3 yearlings. I started hunting with the bow way back around 1993 or so...so that makes it about 18 seasons of bowhunting. I didn't shoot my first deer with the bow until the 1998 season.
