    My dad got a deer with the crossbow after trying for a few years now. First deer with any bow actually. He has a tweenty two point non typycal on the wall from about 40 years ago with the rifle. He said he would have let it go if it had been the regular gun season, but I sure am glad he got one with the bow. Only in the stand 5 minutes this afternoon went the deer walked by. Ran less the 100 yards and droped. yahooooooooooooooo.

    74 almost 75. He uses his cane and takes his time to get to his stand. Used my 4 wheeler to get to the stand last year so he could drive right up to stand, but said ride home got kind of cold. So now he just drives truck as close as he can and walks.
