I couldn't have asked for a better season and it's going to be hard to beat! Im 15 and this year was my first archery season with a compound bow. After practicing day after day in the summer my hard work payed off. I shot a doe and a 8 point buck in PA this year in archery and I cant wait till next year!

This was probably my worst season of hunting I've had. Based on Animals down..

I had a lot of fun trying though

But, 2009 is the year of the Kyle (not the Ox, or whatever)

Ihave big things planned.

I did not have the year I wanted for deer/mature buck sightings but I did have an Incredible good time while being out In the woods and enjoying what mother nature offers!!
x2...and in addition,I had tons of fun putting friends and family members on a lot of animals.My highlights: I had awonderful trip to Africa, and I helped a terminally ill cancer patient harvest a nice5x5 mule deer, a pronghorn buck, and an elk. Ok Bailey, meeting you ranked right up there!

Best I have ever had; God really blessed me. 3 bucks; 2 of which are Pope and Youngs, 3rd was very respectable, a huge mature doe, and an elk. I hunted 3 states, all strange land that I had never set foot on.

Ups and downs....mostly ups. Great early to mid-season, then circumstances made my season low point for a few weeks before the late season gave me some amazing moments in the woods. Got one doe and an average buck, really screwed up on a wall hanger and passed on way too many does looking for a chance at another big one. All in all a pretty good season.

I honestly thought this was the year I would tag a P&Y buck...it did not happen. not even close. however, I finished another year without a miss or wounded animal..3 yrs running with 100% recovery on 18 deer and no mishaps. Im proud of that and I believe it all has to do with the extra practice I put in and calm nerves. I took 5 deer with a bow this year and never saw a good buck in the woods, but still had lots of fun trying!
