Not like Ted Kazinsy....

I'm a family man, I work with people every day. Sometimes 30-40 new people in a day.

90% of the time I hunt alone and prefer it that way. I enjoy sharing a successful kill and I celebrate the successes of others. But I definitely find solace in the individual pursuit and the solitude, if only for a few hours.

What say you?
Loner? Or prefer the company of others out in the woods?

The main reason I hunt with one other guy is hes 67 and had a bad fall. Wore a harness, but not a lifeline. A branch gave way and he shattered his wrist. Can't do the field dressing and dragging anymore. Me & another guy always try to go with him or make ourselves available if he knocks one down. Otherwise I'd be closer to 98% myself.

I really enjoy hunting with someone else but at least 90% if the time I hunt alone because no one is as commeted as I am

I guess I'm a bit of a loner. I work for a big corporation in a production facility and am surrounded by people I like and people I don't. I'm typically the friendly sort but work isn't a place to make friends so I like to keep to myself as best I can. Men can generate drama that makes women look like amateurs.

As for hunting, I've gone on several extended hunts all by my lonesome. Done some fly-ins all by myself. Never felt lonely.

Bowhunt alone or with my son. fish with my son or alone, rifle hunt with a group of guys . I do enjoy the solitude of the outdoors more.

Gun hunting I like the camaraderie. Bowhunting, all alone.

Agree with this Capt. ... love my time alone in the woods

Alone most of the time. I have a few buddies that hunt but don't take It as serious as do.

Alone 90%. Until we do bow drives about 10% with others. I prefer alone as I'm too anal.

For me, bow hunting is a solo sport. If I had a friend or family member who shared this interest, it would be nice to have a partner to tag along but the sit would still be solo. Unless I got into filming or hunting from a ground blind.

I have all week to hunt alone. When I'm not hunting alone, I'm hunting with my son. We go our separate ways, but we think so much alike we often end up in the same places. Tried hunting and fishing with a good friend from work one year, and got tired of waiting for him to show up.
If we lived closer, I wouldn't mind going on a solo winter trip with zap, if that makes any sense.
