    Grandpa shot his compound into his mid 70's, only things that changed were how far he would walk to sit a stand and his draw weight.

    I am fairly below 55, but my hunting buddy is in his early 70's and he shoots a verticle bow and he is good with it! He climbs higher in his climber stand than I am willing to go and he seems to "see" more deer than I do and I know my vision is much sharper than his. Age is just a number..
