my wife has been a bow hunter(for deer) ever since she was 14(minimum legal age in new york to bow hunt). she has given me many many pointers on shooting a bow. actually, i have to give her the thanks for me even being able to shoot a bow with any kind of accuracy. the group i hunt with includes 3 women, and surprisingly they all either shoot muzzle loaders or shotguns. i think its a great thing that women are getting more involved in hunting. that way the only argument over me going out hunting is which stand to sit in. instead of "why are you always out hunting?"
