Hunting Buddies

Postby Curve1 » Sun Jan 23, 2011 1:05 pm

My Dad started taking us bow-hunting back in 1975, I was 14. Me and 3 of my brothers hunted with him regularly up until about the late 80's.
Now, we dont hunt together much anymore...1 of my brothers dont shoot or hunt anymore.
But, my son who is now 24 has been my hunting buddy since he was 6 years old. I got him some recurves when he was starting out [youth bows], and then a compound when he was 10....so he would have enough poundage to kill a deer. He returned to the recurve at 14. He's killed about as many deer with a bow as I have. When he joined the Marines we didn't get to hunt together but 1 time [last 4 years]. He got out of the service last May and he's been going to school full time and it hasn't worked out for us to go together this year. His lovely wife loves to hunt also, but maybe we can hunt together next year....I miss my hunting buddy.

Glad your son is home so you can make some time together.
My sons just 12 and he's with me just about every time I'm in the woods. I'm sure as he gets older there will be times we can't get together to hunt, but I'm gonna try to hunt with him as much as I can, while I can. We still hunt with my dad some too, and my son killed his first buck this year while hunting with my father-in-law. Good times hunting with family. :campfire:

My Dad is 82 now, he is still pretty active but he cany walk as good as he use to. He has had trouble with leg nerves...he could still go hunting but he thinks he's still on his honey moon :D , he got married about 4 years ago.
Okie, that's the way it was with me and him....he was with me everytime I went. That's great when familieshunt together.

I'm hoping this will be my next hunting buddy....my 6 year old daughter, I'm going to get her a compound for her birthday ....that's what she wants, a compound, because her brother's wife [my daughter-in-law] shoots a compound.
