    My neighbor does. I haven't hunted myself for well over two decades now. I was mostly bird though, tried deer a couple times but I really disliked stand hunting and I am not a good woodsman/tracker although I got close enough to to a doe once but she bolted as I was shouldering.

    My son made his own bow out of fiberglass rods, PVC and Paracord and we practice out back though.

    I did a lot of bird hunting pheasant/quail as a kid but now birds arent around like when i was young.
    I like archery and muzzleloader hunting for deer.
    Archery is my favorite.

    I don’t hunt, but I do enjoy shooting my bow.

    I’m the black sheep, I do not but my Father and Brothers are big into it. Nothing against it, here the season falls during my busy season at work. The general archery season in my part of the state just ended.

    Took archery course in scouts or 4H when I was young. The lost skin on my left forearm taught me that I was better suited for firearms.

    . When I was in scouts I too did a little archery. Your right about the loss of skin on the forearm. :wink: Figured it wasn’t for me and never looked back. Well until the Disney movie Brave came out and for some idiotic reason I forgot all about the pain and wanted to try again. One would think an adult would know better. ;) Yep, again learned I am not cut out for archery too bloody painful. I love watching archery though. Not hunting, just target practice. Had a buddy who had a crazy expensive Hunting bow and I thought he was out of his mind considering how often he was able to use it between work and family life. He only hunted turkey and once in a blue moon, deer.
