Default New huntress from VA!

Hello everyone! New to the site here, I like what I see so far! :) Anywho, I'm 23, from central VA. Last year was my first year as a deer hunter; harvested a single button buck in King William county, VA with a shotgun, and I've been addicted ever since! My boyfriend bought me my first bow this month, and I'm hopin to get good enough with it to hunt the upcoming archery season here in VA. My aim here is to connect with other female hunters and to also hear other hunters' stories and to take any piece off advice I can get (males or females, I don't discriminate!). Hope to make some awesome friends on here soon! :D

welcome to the club !! from KY,

bow hunting is the best !! but it takes practice, practice, practice, but dont over do it either. stop if arms are fatiged at all. it takes time to build the muscles up. as far as bow hunting i sugest to people to look at shooting half the distance of the poundage of your bow seems to me to be just about perfect. ( meaning if your pulling a 40 lbs daw bow only take clean hunting shots under 20 yards, 50 lbs = 25 yards or less, 60 lbs= 30 yards or less and so on.

I'm feeling very welcome here :) and thanks for that bow advice. Im having a blast with archery! Right now as a newbie I'm pulling about 45lbs on my Parker Sidekick, and I've got it pretty accurate at 20 yards. 30 and 40 still need some work, but when it comes to the field in October, I probably won't attempt any shots beyond 30 or so. We'll see what happens! What kind of bows do you guys shoot?

I'm shooting a Hoyt, right now.I'm set at 65 lbs. Great bow, love the Hoyt but I've always been a big "high country" fan.

I've heard some awesome things about Hoyt, but boy do they have some pretty price tags, haha.
