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

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?

Thanks everyone!

And I've heard great things about all those bows. My boyfriend shoots a Mathews Heli-M, and he has a hard time putting that thing down when we get to the range, haha. We also have a friend that shoots the Z-7, but he says both the Heli-M and the Z-7 are so much alike, he loves both of them.

I'm happy with my little wimpy girly bow :) :) :)

Greetings from VA! I'm actually from Rockingham County in Western VA. Right around Harrisonburg. I've seen several women become deerslaying machines with those Parker Sidekicks. Hell, my friend's girlfriend has a pink one and shot more deer than I did last year. Good to see a fella bringin' his woman into the sport. Let me know if you 2 ever get interested in hunting up this way. Be it public or private land, me and my friends (we're also 23 and 24) turn my house into a practical deer camp for 90 days a year :) glad to see some other people from VA on here. Thought I might've been the only one. lol
That sounds awesome! We will definitely have to keep in touch, we are always looking for new areas to hunt. We can also invite you down here to King William County if you're ever interested! Virginians united! ;) hahaha

I haven't heard of any declines, but I can tell you for sure that I haven't been seeing many deer around this way like I used to...ya know...BEFORE I started hunting! lol It seems like as soon as I pick up a shotgun they go extinct immediately. It's ridiculous! Hopefully this year will bring more backstraps and hindquarters for the freezer.
That's awesome that you record for DVD's, have you submitted anything to any producers? What do you use to film? My boyfriend wants one of those things that mounts to your shotgun barrel and films from there. IDK, boy toys I guess lol...if I recorded myself attempting to shoot anything, I'd be embarrassed to watch it lmao!

Awesome advice, I'll have to remember that this season! Luckily, my first archery season is going to be on a friend's property that hasn't seen much hunting in the past decade or so. Hopefully this is good news for me! :)

Bruce, we have actually used Google Earth before, marking our tree stands and camera locations, it is definitely an edge we hunters have now, VERY thankful for it!
Mike, thats awesome, sounds like a good thing you got goin' there. You got anything on YouTube or are you keeping it private for now? :)
