This will be my first year hunting period. At least I hope I will be ready. I have been telling myself for years that I am going to learn to hunt this year. Never had the extra time and this year after loosing both parents to cancer I figured it is time to start learning to do something that I can enjoy and pass down to the kids and grandkids. Anyway I don't know a thing. I bought me a crossbow a while back and played with it and it didn't really interest me to much as it was kind of boring. I went to cabelas and tried out a few bows and bought me a Bowtech Fortitude. I am just trying to figure out everything and learn as much as I can. I don't know if I will be ready for when deer season starts here in Kansas but I am sure giving it a try.
