I've seen some nice deer bowhunting though. A couple nice bucks and I drilled a nice doe, just never found her. God I hate that! She ran into a swamp and I lost blood.
They'd all be dead if i had my trusty 1100 in my hand!
I learned this the hard way last year. If you're hunting in an area with lots of bear activity, it's a great idea to stash your food and water up in a tree. I like to wrap everything in a tarp and tie it between two trees. Don't just tie it up in one tree but tie it in between two trees at least 15 feet in the air. I thought I had my backpacking camp's food supply stashed pretty well last year. I returned to camp during the first weekend of archery to find all my food destroyed. Make sure...
