I'll be 42 for a few more weeks. I didn't grow up hunting in a club like some of you, but cut my teeth following in Dad's foot steps and tagging along with him and the occasional uncle. I've been mostly a solo hunter since getting my driver's license. Looking forward to my son tagging along with me (he already does some.)

The way i figure it by the time I have kids old enough to hunt, all the trees i've been growing and planting will hopefully be dropping fruit/acorns. Hard for the wife to say no when I use our future kids as justification.

I think the same about my two boys.....kind of. Everytime I'm out working I think that by the time they get old enough to help me then I'll have all the wood cut and trees planted. Maybe I need to slow down a little.

By the time they're old enough to help me I plan on having more than enough apple and pear trees producing to keep them busy playing/working in the orchard picking fruit.

I don't think there are many of us on here that could slow down even if we wanted too, I think we've all got the same addiction.

Sorry, I'm only 32.......50-60 seems old to me. Kind of like when you were 16 thinking about 30 I guess. Probably should of had one more category for the geriatrics crowd.

Hoping to reach 53 this year before the end of the hunting season.... does the candle burn faster when you burn it from both ends..... or just brighter ??? Dont answer if it's faster...Its gotta keep burning a little longer now... I got 2 grand babies that I want to call in a tom turkey for, a deer or two to gut and a few walleyes that will need to be netted...

I'm right below you. Nobody this age seems to have the passion that these fellas do and I love it!

I have been told that I have the maturity level of a 10 year old boy. Well I resent that erroneous statement. Its much closer to 12.
