    I'm not picky about what I shoot but as far as hunting goes I prefer to hunt bull. Mostly because I use a compound bow and they are easier to call in and much more exciting to hear them grunt. Although I did have a cow come in balling away which was pretty cool. No cow tag though. Only 3 of us in our group so we apply for bull every year and hope for an additional cow. Deer or moose I normally shoot the first legal animal that comes within range.... can't eat the horns!! I have made the personal choice however to never shoot a cow with a calf. That's just my personal choice and not a political stanse

    We prefer a cow because draw chance is greater and were we hunt we usualy see cows every year...bulls too but we rather not take a chance in the draw if we have a better shot at a cow tag


    Hope this helps!

    We are going individual this year as we never have enough guys to guarantee a tag anyway. Told the guys to put in for whatever they want but wondered why I didn't put in for a bull for my first choice. I would love a chance at a bull but reality is I prefer a 15% chance at a cow tag over a 2% chance at a bull. I did however put in for archery bull for 2nd choice as they separated the archery and rifle tags in our WMU this year.

    Bull. Cow it doesnt matter in our group, whatever our best chance was to get a tag, that is what we applied for!
    And in most years we were lucky.

    Our group goes for best success rate draw as well.

    Every year I've gone moose hunting we've only had cow n calf tags. I've shot 2 cows and 2 calves and all 4 times I was pissed they came out to me. I dont want to shoot cows n calves. I'm getting soft in my old age but I wont shoot anymore LOL.

    If I ever go again, It will be bull only and have to be a good one for me to shoot. Loosing interest in big game in Ontario, waterfowl, small game way more fun, and closer to home.
