bowhunting is such a blast! when i first started, it was very frustrating, and seemed to be a waste. after my 2nd year of plugging away at it, i gave serious thought to selling all my hunting rifles. i became a better hunter because of bowhunting. i learned so much more about deer because of bowhunting them. it is a close and personal way of hunting, for sure.<P>first time a deer walked by me close enough to touch, my heart was thumping so hard i could swear she'd hear it! the adrenaline rush was like none other i've ever felt! after she left, i stood up (i was hunting from the ground), and my legs were shaking, and i felt pretty weak. what a rush! can't wait for sep. to get here!<P>------------------<BR>Hunting is not a matter of life or death. It is much more important than that.
