Speaking of 37 I found a arrow I shot 37 years ago. it was a junk arrow with a Wasp 6blade the broad head was in good shape and all the feathers where gone. in my golden years the only thing golden is my urine :lol: :lol: and one thing for sure getting old ain't for sissies.

Variable ages depending on what part we are talking about. 56 for the most part.

As Boo once (or more than once) said, "welcome to the second half of your life".
56, and so far only a troubling stomach challenges me at times.
My wish is to crossbow hunt well and past 80 if the Lord wishes that too.

I'm a young pup at 49. I'm trying to enjoy it all while I can. Some of the hunting treks I take are a bit too much for my family members in their 70's, but they're still getting out there when the conditions and situations are right.

I'm 72, might have slowed down a step or two :roll: but still at it. My younger buddy, at 67, and I, brought a buck mostly uphill about a mile on a deer cart this year, 20 yds. and stop, 20 yds. and stop, took awhile but we got it out, no way would we be hunting where we were if we had to drag.

A touch of frost has heightened your awareness and your heart steadily beats in anticipation. Your senses are suddenly alert to the movement on the forest floor and you realize that the moment of truth is at hand.

I'LL SAY THIS LOUD SO YOU GUYS CAN HEAR ME OK... I'M 37.

:lol: :lol: :wave:

Chris, I have hunted more than 37 years (41 years hunting, more years in the woods). Chris, my relayer is 36 years old :lol: :lol: :lol: . I have 2 Astro Daco's, 1 is 39 years old and the other is 41.

I am 56 but most of the time I feel much older. When I see that I have equipment older then very experienced hunters, I really feel old :eusa-violin: .

80 last August. I had a perfect hunt on Nov.1 2018 when I shot a 130 in. 10 point. I decided to take this
year off and come to FL early. I got 2 30 mile rides in this week on my "new to me" Look carbon fiber
racing bicycle, averaging close to 16 mph. Life is good. I've really been blessed!

I turn 70 in December and feel no older than 69 and 11 months. :thumbup: I still hunt mostly alone and still use my climber daily. I think my new Crawler cart saved my life already this season. :D
