    Primarily archery, and have my own in-line, percussion and flint. Season in VA favors archery, and I spend most of the season with a bow.

    I support a Wounded Warrior hunt every year with muzzleloaders, shooting supplies, and safety equipment - that keeps me busy with equipment and shooting.

    20190114_133252.jpg First started as a bow hunter in the late 60's with a re curve then petty absent between late 70's to mid 80's returned with a compound bow and shotgun slug gun. With two bad shoulders resulted in 2001' switching from bow to a crossbow and continued adding a muzzle loader in 2017. I take full advantage of the bow season in early rut and pass on the doe's entirely. My state deer hunting limits usage to bow, x bow, shotgun slug, muzzle loader, and center fire pistol, cartridge has a limited maximum brass length. I use my Muzzle loader mainly target and optional second buck hunting.

    I primarily hunt archery. I got a flintlock thinking it would extend my hunting range by 30 yards. I was wrong. I need lots of practice to get over my flinch. It will take some time but I’ll get there. Good hunting to all.

    VERY much enjoy archery hunting! But, alas, I use whatever weapon that is legal at the time: bow, rifle, muzzleloader, handgun,...

    Seems I just enjoy hunting more than just with a specific weapon.

    I do most of my damage with archery gear, but my T/C Omega X7 gets plenty of exercise once the weather gets really cold!

    Because of bad shoulder I cannot use my compound anymore, I still get out with my recurve before MZ season starts.

    Been a bowhunter a LOT longer then a muzzleloader hunter. I started back in '71 with a recurve then a longbow then compound and now a crossbow due to shoulder issues. Still shoot a lighter longbow for stump shooting and bowfishing. I built traditional Caplocks and flintlocks for a few years finally switching over to inlines. Its all good

    I do both. Makes for close to 6 months of hunting. Two long seasons for me. Split like 3 months of archery and 21/2 months of black powder
