Bowhunting is something I have yet to try. A great skill if you can do it.
If "sport" hunting hones your skills for when you need them, I say go for it, especially deer, since you are probably actually thinning their overpopulated numbers. Nothing like freshly killed venison
Thanks for the tips and another great thread

here in ireland it is duck season now and pheasant season next month, im not sure about dear here, it is a lot more strict here in ireland for hunting dear, first off its hard to get a rifle licence here unless you own a shotgun for a number of years first and secnd even when you have a rifle licence you need another licence to hunt the dear.
i myself have started hunting a few months ago, have a double barl shotgun and only shot game with it, very nice to eat your first kill
but i plan on getting big into it and fishing too.
also to add, that is realy bad form people will do that kind of thing, as in actually taking a shot at you??? not a hope would people here do that, altho, you do get the stupid people who fire at a sound and not wait to see what it is first. can easily turn out nasty!!
