      Well, I sold my Parker Compound bow yesterday. She’s finally gone. After learning to shoot my recurve there is no way I’m going back. The cool thing about all this is my wife has noticed my passion for my new hobby and is starting to get interested herself. I sent her to the bow shop to pick up my flu flus and the guy told me she was admiring the beauty of the bows. Cross those fingers and throw some prayers my way. I would love to make traditional archery and bowhunting a family affair (although with 5 kids thats a lot of green equipment).

      Just wanted to say thanks to the guys on this site. I have picked up tons of helpfull info from you guys by reading your posts and will have tons of questions in the future as I start to get ready for hunting.

      So do I. I got 4 boys and 1 girl, and so far they all like to come out shooting with me. Just need to get mama into it.

      I just sold my Hoyt compound about three days before christmas. Good Riddens. After shooting my curve for a while had absoultly no interest in going back to that thing. Ive tried to get my girlfriend involved but shes not caught the bug yet although her eight year old little boy likes to go out with me. Hes shoots my old Bear Little Bear Ive had since I was pretty little. The 28 pound draw is still a little much for him but hes almost there. He set down with me while I was painting some crest on some woods and he had to make of his own. (Oak dowl rod haha) but ended up looking pretty good. Now if I can just get my dad to come over from the dark side and stop shooting compound. hahaha.

      Good luck getting your family involved. It makes for great memories. Just remember, it might be nicer for Mama to stay home while you take the kids out. Just sayin’…:wink: Moms think differently when arrows and small kids are involved. Maybe an outing with just the two of you would be more fun for her. 😀

      JMHO, The best thing I ever did was get the wife involved. She has been my best hunting partener for the past 3 decades. Now with the boys all grown up we all hunt as one big group, the boys grew up with us always out in the woods doing something,hunting, backpacking,biking,fishing.

      Like I said JMHO…..

      Later….Buzz

      When my youngest son was ten, eleven and twelve he came hunting with me. I think he was just trying to please Dad. He grew disinterested when he was 13 or 14, or maybe he finally could say no. I do wish my wife would get interested or my son again. I have hopes for my grand children from my older son who likes to hunt but has no time. The grand children are four under 7 years old and another on the way. I hope in the next few years I will have hunting buddies.
