Learned to Bow Hunt from your Dad? from a School PE class? from being in the National Archery in the Schools Program? or some other way? Just curious 'cause both my boys (11 & 9) first shot a bow in Cub Scouts, then we got them a Genesis Bow.
How did you take it up?

When did you get your first rifle?

Learned to shoot bows from a very awesome man in our church when I was 11 or 12. Got the fever to bowhunt by listening to his accounts of the woods. Never truly bowhunted until I moved to IL at the age of 27 and taught myself from magazines, trial and error. Did receive some more good shooting tips from another man, also a church member, just a different congregation.

Is it any wonder I chose a Biblical name, then? I think not.

PS> Got my first rifle from a country yard sale, a .22 that weighed about 10 pounds. I think the stock may have been homemade; $25. But I really started shooting through the Jaycees Air Rifle Shooter Safety program.

I had to do it on my own. It took many years and alot of money to get that first kill. Hopefully my two boys will be able to say "dad taught me".

My brother-in-law started me out bowhunting when I was 14.
He lost his freaking mind and now we hardly speak.
From the time I was 16 everything has been on my own.

Around 25 years ago I was stationed at Minot AFB North Dakota with a guy from Missouri who helped me get started. Lost touch with him when I PCS to Guam but I still remember his name and I am thankful he took the time to help out a newbie.

I started shooting a bow when I was 11 and have basically learned from hard knocks, nobody else in the family owned a bow at the time!
