I' m 35 and have been hunting since I was 12. I' ve bowhunted for 5 years and there' s a real good chance that I will never pick up a gun to harvest a deer, again. My wife? Ha. I have a better chance of seeing our maker, than her hunting. Now, my 7 year old daughter, she will hopefully hunt someday. She shows some interest and she loves to shoot her bow. Cutt

I' m 17, this is my 6th year in the woods. I' ve killed 6 deer with archery tackle. I' ve taken 7 other deer in rifle season.

I' ve been a " hunter" ever since I was 3. My Dad used to carry me in a backpack and go grouse and rabbit hunting. He' d almost always sacrifice his chances of success to take me along as I was growing up. He' s still my favorite hunting partner and best friend. I' ve learned more about the woods from him than any book or magazine could' ve ever taught me.

I' m 45 and have been hunting since age 12. Before that I would be " the dog" and kick rooster phesants and rabbits out for my Dad and older brother. I love being in my stand bow hunting, although also love walking the big woods with my 7 mag in hand during rifle season.

Here in Wisconsin they have a " youth hunt" which is statewide this coming Saturday. Kids 12-15 years can hunt for does only under appropriate supervision with rifles/shotguns. Only the youth can hunt. I' ll be bow hunting, but on Saturday I have to wear blaze orange during this one day hunt. Many people don' t like this hunt because it' s getting prime time rut, and to a point I agree. They could have had it at an earlier time than now, although it is a good way to show the kids what they can look forward to when they get of age and can hunt a real " season" .
