to hunt deer with in Ohio?

shotgun,handgun,muzzleloader,traditional archery,compound bow,crossbow or your vehicle(that is a joke now LOL)

My goal is to get a deer in Ohio with each of them. However I am getting into using my compound bow more so I would say that.

I prefer my Remington 870 Wingmaster with slug barrel first my Thomposn Center Hawkins .50 Cal 2nd I don't bow hunt yet cause I'm not that great with my bow, and want to get a nice clean kill. I just don't feel comfortable yet with my bow. Practice Practice Practice

My choice

I would have to say I got my 1st deer this year. It was with my Horton Legend bow. That would be my 1st choice right now. All of my deer besides the one have came from my 870 Wingmaster. Mal I have to say those are one heck of a gun :) Looking forward to using my compound when Im good enough with it and getting a muzzleloader.

I hunt with a muzzleloader during the deer gun season. I gave up the shotgun many years ago. I also hunt alot with bow.

preferred....

My compound is my favorite but haven't had the time to do it the past few years. That leaves me to my CVA Hawken .50 cal as my next favorite. I'd much rather use it than my 12 gauge.

My favorite weapon for deer in Ohio is my muzzleloaders. Like eschatts, I don't care to take a deer with a shotgun anymore. In the past 7 years during the regular gun season I have taken 6 bucks and 1 coyote With my 50 caliber. Larry

I used to use a compound, but found that with arthritis in my shoulder that it was getting to difficult to pull. A sign of old age.

i use a crossbow during the fall and i'd have to say that i enjoy that season the most even though i've taken more deer during the gun seasons.
over the years i've learned more about deer during bow season than any other time.i like the quietness of it too!
it's the best way i've found to re-charge my mind and forget all of lifes everyday b.s. for a while.

Martin Bow here...can actually say that I have only taken one deer with anything rather than a compund, and that was about 35 deer ago and atleast 18 years back. Was a doe with a shotgun back when the "earth was still flat".
