I would get the bow. I have a .22 and a compound bow. I enjoy shooting the bow. I can shoot indoors, shoot in the back yard and no one can hear me. We have a separate archery season for deer which is a month before rifle season, and I can hunt restricted areas.
You also have more luck seeking landowner permission to hunt their land if you tell them you're only using a bow.
Plus it's a good hobby to get into! There's plenty of days I enjoy archery more than shooting guns...
There's something primal in it, like reconnecting to a lot of ancestors.
Arbitrary enforcement of the law is the mark of tyranny. Citizens will always fight against it.
