What kind of bow did you get and what are the stats? I'm curious as to what someone of your age would hunt with.

Me, I've only been hunting this year although I've had my bow for 1.5 years ---just took me a long time to get all my ducks together

I'm 31. Started bowhunting when I was 9. My oldest child is Autumn(named after my favorite time of year!) she is 4 and just took her first trip with me hunting the other day. We had a blast. All she says she wants to do is "shoot a buck-deer like Daddy does". Melts my heart. Her little sister, Summer is always talking about it. I let them pet my deer mounts all the time. They love animals, but also show a keen interest in the sport of deer hunting and doing what Daddy does. SO COOL!!!!!

My third, Zack, is due in 3 weeks!!( Finally, a boy!!) I'm sure he will be a deerslayer, too!!(Time to get snipped, I know).
Maybe by then they'll have a season on PETA members!
Maybe by then they won't allow hunting???[:@][>:][:-]
Hope not. Can't see it. Not that soon.

31, bowhunted for 22 years.

I'm 40 been hunting since I was 12. One thought on this issue. Sometimes it's the quality and not the quanity thats more important. And it lookes like theres a lot of young Quality on this site.
