I agree. It would suck to try to sneek in on a bull with a bow just have someone shoot close by and spook the whole herd. I haven't looked at the ML regulations. Are ML hunters aloud to hunt all the same units as archers?
Yes archery and ML hunters hunt the same units during the season. I agree it would be nice if they changed the dates like Still Hunter said but until they do archery hunters need to deal with ML hunters during the 9 day ML season.
I do like ML hunting. Haven't done it for years. My question is do you prefer traditional style gun or the new styles with scopes and all the new high tech. You can definitely shoot much further with more accuracy with the new styles compared to 20 years ago. Personally to me it takes more of the challenge away. That being said I prefer a compound over a recurve.
If you're like me and use a plastic tote to store your gear in then you might want to read further. When plastic totes are manufactured they are typically shipped with the lid on. This makes the inside of the tote smell like the plastic it's made of. To remove the plastic smell from the tote I use baking soda. I open the baking soda up and leave the box in the tote with the lid on for about a month to remove the plastic smell. I tried just leaving the lid off but I was still able to smell...
