Unlike most hunters I know, I didnít grow up hunting even though my father did occasionally hunt. In fact, I was 36 years old the first time I went hunting. Itís taken a few seasons and lots of work, but I finally got my first buck yesterday at age 39. He may not be huge (7-pointer), but heís certainly a trophy to me. What makes it even more special was the fact my dad was hunting with me (another location on my uncleís property); we re-connected earlier this year after ~20 years of no contact. Regardless of how the rest of the season goes, itís been a great one for me already. Just wanted to share. Good luck to everyone!
