    Hello from Nebraska. I'm fairly new to bowhunting/archery. I rifle hunted a bit as a kid, but never got seriously involved in it. I'm was born and raised in west central Illinois and knowing what I know now about whitetails, I kick myself for not getting involved early. Picked up a bow a little over a year ago after a severe ankle fracture since I needed something to entertain myself that didn't involve much lower body movement. Hunted in NE and IL this year and fell in love...spent as much time in the stand as I possibly could. Came up empty handed this season, but gained a ton of experience! I also started shooting in a 300 league during the off-season and love that as well. I look forward to learning from everyone on these boards.

    Thanks guys! Switchback, I see you're in Central IL. Whereabouts if you don't mind me asking. I'm a Central IL native and will always consider it home!!
