    Hi. I recently retired and decided to get into archery/ bow hunting as a good way to stay outside and active. All the hunting I've done in recent years is pheasants and small game with a shotgun or .22. Now that I have more time and a relaxed schedule(former FedEx courier), I'm up for trying for a deer. I used to shoot recurve a back in the 70's but have decided to try a compound bow.
    Lots of choices out there....almost overwhelming!!
    I hope everyone here has a great 2016 and fills there tag....Bob

    Glad that you found us.
    You are venturing down the "addiction road" by jumping into archery.
    It's a great place to be.

    ENJOY!!!!!!!!!!!
