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!

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.
