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.

The problem in America is not that ungodly people have said yes to ungodly things, but rather that Godly people have refused to say "no" to ungodly things.

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
if u have cheap guns, i have compulsive purchase disorder. 02undying15 02undying15
