    Hey everyone! I just bought my first bow (compound) on Tuesday. After shooting a few bows and different manufacturers, I went with the Mathews Triax. I gotta say...I’ve been around firearms my whole life and own quite a few, but after about a year or two of thinking about it, I finally took a step into the unknown. This is the first time in a long time that I have started a new hobby that I know absolutely nothing about, and I have to say it’s pretty humbling yet exciting. Guys like Cameron Hanes, Remi Warren and Joe Rogan have inspired me greatly to make this new transition. I’ve also never hunted before. So my goal is to practice hard and get to a place where I am confident in my shots and work up to my first hunt. I don’t know any bow hunters, but I definitely would like to get in touch with some veterans that would be willing to take me out and educate me on and off the field. Thanks guys.

    Welcome from a little further north. I'll be honest So Cal isn't the best place to start your career but it is a start. Read everything you can on the site and feel free to ask questions. I've never hunted down south but happy to help with CA hunting regs if you have questions. Best of luck on the new journey!
