I bought my first bow when I was about 21 or 22. I taught myself had to shoot it with a little help from the local bow shop. Got my first rifle as a gift from my dad when I was about 17. It was a Marlin 30-30 and I still have it. I taught myself to shoot it. I will take a deer or two with it this year.

I learned with my dads old bow, but he had gotten out of bow hunting. So i had to teach myself. I didnt have an open layer target so i had to learn the hard way that broad heads dont fly like field tips. But once i got into archery he bout me a new bow, and himself a used bow also.

Since then he has developed multiple sclerosis in his legs, and cannot walk more than about 10 yards without having to stop. and he cant walk down inclines at all. Its been really tough on him from going to being able to do anything at 40, to not being able to walk around at 45. At least he can still crawl up in a boat and fish a few times a month.

That is when i am in town and can drive to the lake and go park the truck.

Bought a bow about 5 years ago and had a few lessons from the friendly folks at Eagle Wings. Then kept practicing and have killed 3 deer with it. It's not my bow shooting skills stopping me from taking deer with it, its the fact that when in a tee stand, I get some of the best sleep I have ever had! And yes, I do use the saftey harness!

Mom and Dad bought me a 410 shotgun when I was 12 and I did alot of rabbit and squirrel hunting with it. I didn't get into deer hunting untl I was about 34 or 35. No one in my family ever hunted deer!
