I' m 28 and have been a pheasant hunter since I was 15. Got into deer hunting last year. BB always have a lower average age then the general age of the whole group.

i' m 44 been hunting since i was 8 went out the first time with my uncle hunted squirrels, when i got home that nite was hooked asked mom an dad for a 12ga for xmas. nevr got it that year but for my birthday in april at age 9 i got my first bow recurve, and hunted with that thing for 4 years, now at age 44 i look back at all the days i have spent in the woods an for the life of me wouldnt change one thing. i have broken my back 3 times and even though i dont get around as good as i used to i wouldnt give up the 1 thing i have been so passionate about for anything. i met my third wife about 7 yrs ago and when she and i met an she told me she wanted to hunt i knew that this was the perfect woman for me, my soul mate we hunt an fish together all the time and my 14 yr old daughter is just as passionate as me when it comes to bowhunting ,she gets to go gun hunting this season as well, plus our 4 other kds are all interested in hunting as well, my 10 yr old son is a natural with a bow and he cant wait till he is 12 so he can finnlly hunt all in all life in this hunting family is good and looks like hunting will be a passedown tradition,,,, SORRY I GOT A LITTLE LONG WINDED ON THIS ONE GUY' S AN GAL' S
