How many years did it take to get your first whitetail (big game) with your bow?

    I got my first whitetail in my 2nd year of bowhunting. I also shot my first bow buck in my 2nd year as well.

I got an antelope on my thrid

I got an antelope on my thrid seaon of bow hunting, but it was my first attempt at antelope.  My passion is elk and have yet to take one with a bow, this will be my 5th season.  I have had some real close encounters one bull at 25 yards but no shot.

My fourth season, I was 16

My fourth season, I was 16 and killed a nice little 6 point at 20 yards.  I can still remember it like it was yesterday.

Hopefully 1, this is my first

Hopefully 1, this is my first year bow hunting, I've been hunting for bout 20 or so yrs, when I would rifle hunt i would stalk in as close as possible usally into 20 yrds or so, I think the transition to bow hunting will be smooth because of the way i hunted already. Just now I can hunt the animals in the rut

I was 14 when I took my first

I was 14 when I took my first deer with a bow and was 17 before I took my first archery buck. Needless to say I am now at age 41 an admitted bow hunting addict. Good luck hunting this year!
