I guess that makes me a late starter.I did'nt come from a family that hunted.I got into small game hunting on my own as a teenager.But then when I was about 21 or 22 some buddies from work introduced me to deer hunting.I got lucky I guess,I shot my first deer on myfirst hunt on opening day with a shot gun.Been hooked ever since.Took up bow hunting the follwing year.And now I'd rather bow hunt then anything.
I started hunting when i was 24 with a rifle and 27 with a bow. This is my third season with a bow. I got my first bow when I was 12 took the hunters safety class that year but never made it into the woods. Family didn't hunt and I didn't have anyone to take me out so it wasn't until twelve years later that my boss talked me into getting a license. so if you know a kid that might be interested take them out. i know i would have appreciated it when I was a kid.
I was 12 when I started with the bow. Between doves, ducks, geese ,quail and pheasant hunting (and college :wink I didn't tag my first deer until I was 21. 1987 was the year I decided that I would get serious about getting one with a bow.
