24 been doing it since I can remember. not sure on how many deer I have shot but i would guess 10 bucks (196 largest) and countless does, got to be close to three figures. Been all over the world hunting as well. Never can get enough of it, always haunted by the drive to hunt.

I started bowhunting using trad when I was 16. Switched to wheels in my early to mid 30's. Ive only shot a few bucks with a bow but a bunch of does. Prolly 5 or 6 bucks and around 40 does as a guess.

I am 45 I started bowhunting when I was 12 and took my first deer when I was 16. I have shot more deer than I can remember in that time but none were very big and most were does. I have hunted elk and antelope successfully as well as uncounted hogs and a dozen or so Alligators. All with a bow. I stopped hunting deer and hogs with a gun over 20 years ago.
