I' m 259 in dog years (37). I have been hunting since I was 17. Self taught and am in th process of teaching my 6 year old daughter. We have a hunt planned already for this year. It will be an afternoon hunt, no sense in getting her out of bed at 0 dark thirty. So there is a new recruit to the ranks.

I' m 29 and I' ve been hunting since I was 8. I started hunting with my dad and I owe every bit of what I know to him. I have 2 boys that are 6 and 9 but the ex-wife won' t agree to let me take them out to the woods. I am trying to teach my 10 year old stepson what my dad taught me.

I' m 44. Got my first rod and reel at age 4, my first rifle at age 9, and my first bow at age 14. Still love hunting and fishing. Been doing this bow and arrow thing 30 years now. Hope to do it 30 more.[&:]

I' m 21. I' ve hunted here in Oklahoma since before I could even hold a gun. I had to sit next to my dad and watch him. Now I' m at college and have found a few acres to hunt even while I' m away at school. The best thing about going to college in a farming community is that you can find a place to hunt in the morning and still make it to class.

And don' t worry... I know I said " since before I could hold a gun," but before everyone gets on the bow only kick, I must clarify that I learned to hunt deer with guns, and I still do, but also with my PSE. I take all the opportunities I can get!

I' m 49 and have been bowhunting since I was 12. As a youngster I used to give up bowhunting when squirrle season came in since my brother never managed to get shots at deer with his bow. Had my first deer kills 4 decades ago, in the 60' s, and just filled both of my PA tags this past week. What a great way to spend your life!
