I use a PSE "thunder bolt" compound bow for archery, and for firearms season I use a old rem. 870 wingmaster 20 gauge with a rifled slug barrel and open sights. The shot gun used to belong to my grandfather, who bought it in the 60's, the gun is still in great shape after all these years.

Better watch it you'll be labeled as a slob hunter because you use a crossbow.[;)] LOL

Over the years I have changed up a bit and now have more guns to play with than I did when I was a kid.  I don't play golf but I know what one of those guys feels like when he looks at his bag now.

Last years line up went----
Diamond Liberty compound bow until Modern gun season  (all of October)and the last week of January.
TC encore 50 cal muzzle loader  for most of still season and the last muzzle loader----  All of November and 3rd week in Jan--- bow hunted 1st Muzzle loader
Remington 600 Mohawk .308 = a couple hunts in November
Winchester 1300 youth model 12 GA-- 1 hunt in November--- (killed my only buck with it on that hunt)


December brought in Hound season which lasted through mid January.

I generally carry a black synthetic Browning A-5 12ga with a Strangler choke and a rifle of some sort stays in the truck.  Last year I carried my wife's Remington 7600 pump .308 for when I was a stander and not the driver.  I just had it out on a whim.  Normally I carry my grandfathers old Remington 600 .308 which is the same style as mine that I carry in still season some.  It's light and quick handling and makes for a super sweet brush gun.

Others that may or may not get pulled out for the 08-09 season but have seen hard duty over the years include:  My Remington 700 in 7mag and my Remington 870 express magnum (which my wife claims).

My preferred line up right now would be bow- Encore ML - Browning A-5.
But I love rifles and own some good ones.   Not using one for which it is so well made is like owning a race horse that you never let run.  So I would imagine that I'll be dumping out brass at the range soon.  Although it may be awhile yet because modern gun starts Saturday and I haven't even checked my zero.  But I just put 30 arrows in the killzone of a glendell target.  I may break out the encore but most likly I'll still be playing Hiawatha .....

I use a Browning A-Bolt Slug gun for firearm deer.
 
I bowhunt with a recurve, which was NOT on the options list! That's why I'm the 1% of "OTHER"!
