    4th generation bowkiller

    My 14 yr old grandson took his first deer with a bow Saturday. My Dad's first was in 1965, mine in '70, my sons '92 and '95 respectively. This made my 47th year with a recurve and still turns my crank but this was pretty exciting for us both.

    good deal. looks like the shot was on the money. IMO hunting with a bow is much more rewarding than with a gun. takes a bit more skill and patience too.

    congrats to the boy. Shot my first bow deer in 1968 and just got in the house from hanging an 11 point I killed with a crossbow 3 hours ago. Dang rotator cuff anyway

    Hey Blanket, You say Dang rotator cuff. I have heard people say that they were too old to have it fixed. One of them was 47 years old. I had my rotator cuff repaired in 2005 at 71 years old. It took six months to get up to drawing 62 pounds again. Just sayin.
    Congratulations 14 year old grandson. I was in my 50s before I killed a deer with my bow. I am still bowhunting.

    You can miss fast & you can miss a lot, but only hits count.

    Congratulations. I've been using a crossbow since they legalized them here a few years ago, but I hate it. I think I'm gonna pull the long bow off the wall and start working with it again this year in prep for next year. Not sure I'm still strong enough for meaningful practice, a 65 lb draw weight seems a lot these days.
