    Hoping some of the old(er) members remember me.

    After a 3 year hiatus from archery hunting because of a bad shoulder and not being able to draw back a bow... I'm going to be in the woods this Saturday with a crossbow - hoping to get a shot at a deer. Wish me luck.
    Haven't really followed BHOD in those years because of not hunting and feeling depressed. Use to join in on the annual deer contests - and I just might join again next year if this works out.
    73 years old... and I feel like a kid in a candy store... can't wait to get in the woods! :)

    Welcome back. I had to switch to a LH compound bow because of a bad shoulder. So far, not needing any surgery. Good luck!

    Welcome back! Best of luck to you. I had shoulder surgery last year and couldn't hunt with my compound, so I had to use my CB. This year I hurt my other shoulder from a slip/fall and again had to use my CB. As long as you're getting into the woods, that's what counts. Be careful out there!
