My dad taught me. I don't remember how old I was, but I was shooting archery when I was 10 or so. I bow hunted with him a good amount in middle school and high school. I never have killed a deer with a bow, but I killed several with a gun. My favorite trips were to a Ballard Youth hunt with my dad, granddad, and brother...and then a couple of trips to Sturgis with my dad and some of his hunting buddies. I wish Sturgis was still huntable to us. That place was and still is amazing.

I went off to college in 2000 and just didn't have the time or money to put into hunting any more. I'm really starting to get the fever again though and I plan on buying a bow here soon and plan for next season. I'm about two hours away from "home" but Fort Campbell and LBL are right in the middle of my dad and I so I can't wait to meet up with him a couple times next fall for some hunting.

I feel like a loser now. My son didn't shoot a rimfire until he was 8. BB gun at 7.

He did kill a buck at 10 though. And in Florida too!

How did you take it up?

When did you get your first rifle?


Sorry, I tried archery, never stuck to me. But I got my first rifle Christmas of 2006 from my uncle Tom. My papaw (my dad's dad) bought a U.S. Model 1917 30-06 Eddystone for a $20 bill in 1963, and I inherited it. \:D
