OLD is just something in your head. (thought the mountains do seem to be getting a lot higher than they used to be!) Glad you found this site and are getting back to your roots. I hunt the season but my first love has and always will be archery. After a bad motorcycle crash and burn, I couldn't draw a bow so for years I hunted just with a rifle and resorted to guiding. About 5 years ago I tried a new compound and found that I could draw it. Now granted I'm only shooting at 57 pounds but tell that to a couple of whitetails and an elk! As long as you're still at it......that's all that matters.
