How many states have you bow hunted in?

I've hunted Ohio, of course [:p] and West Virginia, that's all. I'd like to bow hunt Elk or Mule Deer in Colorado, but for $490 and a 25 hour drive I take a rifle along. [:D]

    Nice collection! Did you hunt private or public? I've hunted Gunnison National Forest in Colorado, I'm signing up this year for preferance points and hopefully next year I'll go to a different unit to hunt. The one I have hunted doesn't seem to get the elk travel I'd like to see. Even the local farmers have told me this so I need to move on, hopefully to somewhere better. [:)]

    Canada was a guided hunt, Montana was on private land that a gal I grew up with owns. She has a 7x6 on her wall that is a monster.

    taco, I can only imagine ever getting a 7 x 6, I'll bet it is a monster.
    My neighbor has a 6x6 on his wall from Wyoming I believe. It's pretty damn large, but it looks smaller compared to ones I see on TV and in magazines.

    salzo, how come you hunt NY more than PA? I have thought about going to PA, but never did it. Back in the 70's my dad used to go, but I never did.

    I've always heard goat hunts were hard to get tags for and a pretty rough hunt to. Be neat to get one though.

    I always wanted to hunt Brown bear with a bow.

    Being fairly new to bowhunting I've only hunted in my home state of Nebraska. We talked to the farmer were we get permission to hunt and he said he saw a big 8 by 8 the other day so September 15th can't come fast enough for me lol. This year I think were planning on taking a trip down to Oklahoma to hunt some Russian Boar. $250 for a two day hunt and it's only about 8 hrs away. Not to bad in my opinion.

    Hey Nebraskabowhunter, about 8 or 10 years ago a buddy of mine wanted to go to Nebraska and hunt mule deer. I said I'd go but he ended up not having the money then the guy that had the farm we were going to hunt on got sick or something, but anyway is the mule deer hunting there pretty good?

    thanks!

    My brother went on boar hunt to some preserve here in Ohio with his bow. He said it wasn't much fun cause you sat in a tree stand and they sorta herded the hogs by you. He said he could see the guys heading them his way. He shot one anyway though [:D]
    I think it would be fun to try, least you could say you did it then. [:)]

    I'm pretty sure I understand what your talking about and I agree with you completely even though I do both. [:0] Every year at least one sometimes two days during shotgun season and again during muzzleloader season I get together with anywhere from 4 to 15 people and we drive deer outa thickets/hollows all day. We always meet up for breakfast and have lunch togther to, so really most of us consider it a get together rather than hunting. I was just thinking and I can't remember the last time I even shot a deer while we were doing that.
    On the baiting part....I have a tree stand next to a corn field, another by a hay field, and one by a soy bean field to. Just this past weekend my buddy and I planted our 8 food plots (20'x40') out in the woods (neither of us have stands closer than a couple hundred yards I'd say). We plant clover, alphafa, pumkins then sometimes corn and beans to. We don't hunt over these but we know the deer we're hunting eat there so I'd have to call it baiting. The way I see it, I can shoot a doe for meat 8 outa every 10 times I hunt, but a little extra help for those antlers to grow can't hurt. [:D]

    Ok if a stranger jumps in? Tennessee, North Carolina, South Carolina, Arizona, Alaska, Virginia, Georgia. That's it I think. I've had more opportunities than most because of being in the military for 21 years and moving a lot. The best was Alaska of course..Moose, bear, caribou, even ptarmigan. I'd love to go back, but old age has put a squash on it. However, I'll keep dreaming.

    WELL.......of course, jump right in. Looks like the military has definately benifitted your hunting adventures. Sure hope I can experience some of those during my life.
    How about answering a question for me? ptarmigan? I could do a search on the net, but you brought it up[:D]
