41, my grandad took me squirrel hunting around 8. My parents took us kids fishing and camping every weekend.

Interests: archery, small game, rifle, and bowfishing. Most of my family hunts including my 82 year old father-in-law and my 2 sister-in-laws. (the father-in-law has more pissss and vinegar than I do and can climb a mountain faster)

The 1st day of rifle season we hunt together, the emotions and family bonding are compareable to Christmas eve and Christrmas day.

I have 2 young neices that like to shoot and are future hunters.

My favorite hunting partner is my nephew (PAHUNTER21)
