I' m 34 started hunting when i was 27 and feel in love. I love being outdoors in the woods and just regret that i didn' t start earlier. My dad hunted but gave it up b4 i could remember. I won' t make that mistake with my kids ...they' ll get to make that choice for themselves at an early age

36 Here. Went deer hunting for the first time when I was 17, hunted for about 3 years then didnt hunt again until I was about 25. Started bow hunting 3 years ago and as long as I can find places to hunt, I will never turn back. Got my first bow kill about a month ago, and now I am hooked.

I' m 34 now (Wow, it feels weird to write that! ), and was fortunate enough to be introduced to hunting and fishing when just a little tyke; I was probably about nine or so when I killed my first cottontail with a single-shot 16 gauge.

Got into bowhunting in college because of the longer season dates, and like someone above mentioned, will probably never chase another whitetail with a gun, unless it' s to introduce my newborn son to the sport during rifle season.

I' m a pretty hard-core bow addict now, even purchasing a rifle tag so I can bowhunt during gun season.
