We are a family of Hunters. Husband and wife, son, daughter-in-law, grandson, and granddaughter.
Actually, the grandchildren are much too young to hunt, they just like to shoot their bows with their parents and grand parents and help watch for animals. UPDATE--This year,2008, the grandson is old enough to hunt big game (He got an Elk with a Bow on the First Day Of His First Hunt with His First Shot, That's our boy) and both are old enough to legally ride ATVs with a licenseThis is our Grandson showing his form to his parents and Sister. This is our Granddaughter showing her form to her parents. This is our Granddaughter taking her ATV test. This is our Grandson taking his ATV test (they have the helmets with the stars).
My wife and I began bow hunting several years ago when we moved to the Mountain West from Texas because my wife had a great job offer and I hated the awful humidity in Texas.
The fact that there is much public land in the West and most of property in Texas is privately owned which requires one to either own, rent, or lease property to hunt also helped in the decision to move.
The cost of leasing property to hunt was cost prohibitive to the average family and we looked forward to the hunting opportunities that public land had to offer.
After meeting the residency requirements, we purchased elk tags and headed for the mountains for our first rifle elk hunt out West.
Within an hour of legal shooting light, I thought we were in a war zone.
The sound of gun shots and ricocheting bullets echoed up and down the canyons.
I had not even seen a deer, much less an elk. The trees looked as though they were full of orange blossoms with all of the hunter orange clothing moving about.
I recovered my wife and son from their hunting spot and we headed down the mountain to the safety of our home.
Hunting public land within 30 miles of the city with only a nine day season was not as great of an idea as we had thought.
That is why we introduced ourselves to archery in general. The archery deer season starts in mid August and
the overlaps the archery elk season which lasts into mid September to give the bow hunter about one month of hunting time for the general season.
Then there is the late or extended season if you have not filled your tag.

The temperature in the mountains can still be in the 20's at night, but we seldom have much snow or bitter cold to worry about during the regular season.
All of this and the fact that it is not very crowded in the mountains during the archery hunt made for an easy decision
to take up bow hunting.

has lead us to make some interesting discoveries relating to bow hunting and archery related products.
