I dont believe that archers/archery hunters are better or more dedicated in anyway whatsoever over modern or muzzle loader.  I wont say what i really want to say since all hunters are a positive and working for the same things.  On that note, I wish cow tags were more distributed throughout weapon types, than unlimited for archery and 10 for modern in some units, thats bs!!  Im glad to see a cut in tags, if it is in fact what is needed for our elk and deer herds.

Don't forget that my comment was about the average hunter.  I'm curious if you really believe that the same percentage of gun hunters are hardcore as archers?   If​ you stop personalizing it, I believe you'll agree that most road hunters, weekend warriors, and beginners are rifle hunters just because it is easiest.  That's not a knock on those that are hardcore, and their weapon of choice is a rifle.  Fact is almost all current archers started out as rifle hunters.  :twocents:
Percentage wise per user group you are probably correct but percentage wise as a whole as a hunting community I think modern has more but our definitions of hardcore may be different.  Have good friends that are both depending on seasons.  I feel more youth are starting out into archery and young rifle hunters (not hardcore) are making the switch to archery due to longer seasons and better season dates.  Either way, archers made their choice and rifle made their choice, if I dont like my seasons I can always switch too.  Its always a give and take in this populated state anyways, good luck this upcoming season.

I personally don't believe the cow numbers for rifle and or muzzy hunters. I bet there are people who said they didn't harvest a cow. I archery hunt those units and if I rifle hunted it would have been a piece of cake.

I think guys get the cow tags and figure its a slam dunk. Based on the #'s of cow tags given, guys that never stepped foot in units thought with that many cow tags there must be that many more elk. But every year guys get on here looking for intel on where to kill a cow. I run into guys every year in the field looking for cows cause they cant seem to find em.  I've had two cow tags in the last 4 years and had to work to fill them both, and I know the areas I hunt. I'm glad they reduced the tags, they should of never increased them in the first place. It was all about $$$$.
