My first couple were with a crossbow killed my first when I was 9. Killed my first deer with a compound when I was 13 I believe. Still have yet to kill a buck with a gun

My first was with a bow at 12. It was out of necessity. My folks wouldnt let me gun hunt until i was older but had no problem letting me climb trees with my bow. Great memories. No safety harnesses and standing on a board wedged into crotch of tree.

I killed my first 3 with a bow, then shot one with a rifle. After the bow kills, the rifle kill gave me no thrill so I went to bow only after that.

Never killed a deer with anything but a bow. Not that I don't pull out the smoke pole for late season but that is for buck only.

First deer was a small 5 point with a 35lb. Ben Pearson bow. I was 13……..40 years ago now, and it still seems like last week in my mind. :lol:

My 13 year old daughters first deer was with a bow this season.

My first was with a XR 100 dirt bike, perfect hit right behind the shoulder. :mad:

My first was with a Martin Lynx, 65 lb, Easton XX75 2117 with Thunderhead 125's. That was 25 years ago. As a matter of fact I killed all mine with a bow until 1996 when I got one with a slug gun.
