why is it that sporting goods companies , and production companies dont concentrate at least half theyre effort on firearm deer hunters , when firearm deer hunters make up over 60 percent of the total hunting population . you would think they would lean more towards the bigger consumer base wouldnt ya

Cause most shotgun hunters only buy a pocket full of slugs once a year

It's bowhunters that buy the majority of the stands, sticks, a new bow every 1-3 years, 20 dollar arrows, deer piss, grunt calls, bow ropes, new camo, 10 dollar each broadheads, and on and on. Gun hunters in Ohio are at it for only 9 days with a slug gun. While they make up the majority of the hunters. The only make up a small portion of overall sales.

It's the equivalent of a gun only hunter buying a new shotgun every other year, shooting 20 dollar slugs, and buying 3-4 stands and sticks in a weeks time.

What the hell beanie weenie?! :mad:
Sorry a bit tired. I was referring to getting picked on. And you started it without knowing. I opened this thread first when I logged on and thought something was wrong because of all the ..///----.,,= stuff. So I put a thread on "forum problems" saying I was seeing it thinking it was a issue with the site. Then I realized once I went back to this thread that I was a jackass.

I can't even explain it coherently at this point. Just know that I wasn't really giving you crap.
