I use a drill with a bulb auger. It's SUPER easy!I planted 100s of daffs when we first moved here. They have multiplied and filled in and it's daffodil land here in the spring. The tulips have been eaten by the critters. I gave up on those.
If you can get a helper, then planting bulbs is a snap. Use a shovel, not a trowel. One person steps on the shovel and wedges a slot open. The other person puts in the bulb. Shovel person removes shovel, bulb person steps on dirt to tamp it down. Move on and repeat.
I didn't have a helper and planted 100 bulbs in less than an hour.
