As another season closes reflections come to mind from years past. I got my start with a Bear Kodiak Magnum recurve back in 1979. I didn't get a deer that year but then deer weren't near as plentiful then. The next year I got my first, a doe and was proud of the accomplishment. Couple years later I swapped out for "training wheels" and got my first compound bow. Over the years I regularly kilt deer and a few turkeys and upgraded again twice more with faster, lighter bows. Can't remember what year it was 2016? I upgraded again to my current setup, a Horton Storm. With this change I also upgraded my selection of what I would shoot. I have taken several turkey with it but the last couple years due to lack of birds in the area pass on anything but adult gobblers. This year, the eighth year to hunt with the dreaded crossbow, I finally crossed paths with the #1 deer that I had pictures of this year and as luck would have it I got him, my first buck with the crossbow. He also claimed the honor of being my best archery kill by 6" over my previous best which was 140".
This also was the best season I have ever had as I managed to get all 3 deer that I wanted, no giants by any means but the two best on camera and the spotted fawn that I have wanted for several years. Pics of my first and latest archery deer....

I started late, but still a while ago in 1993, killed a BB that year with a garage sale bought PSE and shooting fingers. close to 30 years!
I was a late starter myself as I was 20 when I started bow hunting in 1979
