yep same here. I'm the only one in the family that deer hunts.
My father's only professed hunting experience was riding on the hood of a 55 Chevy at night through orange groves with a 22rifle waiting for rabbits to run in front of the headlights. I've heard him tell it a thousand times.
After demonstrating some talent around a bird feeder, I was taken in by a next door neighbor as an apprentice at age 14 to be his doe assassin.
