    Where are all the bowhunters?

    Pretty new to this forum, noticed there doesn't seem to be a lot going on in the archery section.

    Surely with the roar being on there would be a bit more happening here, or are the majority of bow hunters staying clear of the bush to avoid getting shot?

    Also if anyone knows of good deer hunting areas near Taranaki that suits for bowhunting id love to hear from you as im dying to get out over the coming months.

    I've just taken it up, bought a bow in early June. So far lapping up the info, hooked on youtube videos and practicing a fair bit. Taking the bow for a walk tomorrow maybe and definitely in the weekend.

    I'm drawn to the mountains and the bush, it's where life is clear, where the world makes the most sense.

    I am amazed more people don,t hunt with bows, last weekend we had a great time hunting turkeys, we got two, spotted some pigs but could not get onto them, if there are any other bow hunters in the whangarei area, who want to team up let me know.

    Dont waste your time chasing every last fps, it doesnt matter in the real world, it wont make a difference, all it will do is cause head aches and frustrations. And dont listen to silly old cunts
