Re: Deer hunts

Marge, you are absolutely right, it does take more skill to kill deer with a
bow.  I think that is why, at least in NE, that bow season is the first one
in the year, so the deer won't be quite so skittery.  Of course if one is a
dedicated bow hunter, you can get quite good at it.  This year in NE, if you
took advantage of all the licenses available, you could "harvest" 8 deer
legally.  Rich in Z-5
