Paul@thefort has a birthday tomorrow, Tuesday. I met him 4 years ago while elk hunting, I was 3 miles up a mountain and along comes this mountain man - Paul had a loaded pack and was pulling his one wheeled cart -hard to tell how many pounds he was carrying. At age 49, I had just moved to Colorado and figured my elk hunting seasons were numbered. Paul, 25 years older than me, told his story of achieving the Colorado "Big 8" after he was well past age 50. Inspiring to say the least, that encounter motivates me every year to stay in shape and keep hunting for another 30 years - Happy Birthday Paul !

Turkey hunted with Paul one year. Showed me that if I say in shape, I can hunt well past 50.

Any stories from others of encounters that changed their outlook on what is possible after 50?

Happy Birthday Paul ! I'll be 70 the 12th, just a few days from now. I don't think I could have kept up with you when I was 60.........

Went to Frank Noska's 50th birthday party this past Saturday, I guess for an old man he still does OK.

EVERY picture that Paul posts inspires me to hunt more!! Thank you sir..You are a badass....

Happy Birthday Paul, Rock On!

From: Paul@thefort
Well, thank you guys very much as you made my day (tomorrow the 7th) for sure. SEVENTY SEVEN is just a number; it is what is in your heart that drives your passion that really counts. How bad and how long do you want that fire inside glowing strong?

You guys are the best. Paul

From: greg simon
Happy birthday tomorrow Paul. Always enjoy your excellent and inspiring stories and pictures. You are a great example for others to follow!!!

From: Timbrhuntr
Dang man good for you and happy birthday.

Lucky 7's! Enjoy!

I remember in my 20's/30's reading Fred Bear hunt stories where he did many of them in his 50's and 60's. I thought that was old:)

Silly me!

From: Treeline
Happy Early Birthday, Paul!

You have plenty of time to get another BIG 8 with a recurve! Go get 'em!

Happy birthday Paul, you're an inspiration!

From: badbull
Not only an inspiration to me but full of helpful and useful information. When he posts I read and appreciate. Wishing you a respectful happy birthday!......badbull

From: brianhood
Happy birthday paul. HOPE you are hunting many many more birthdays. ALWAYS enjoy reading your posts.

From: Scooby-doo
Happy Birthday and many more!! I am north of 50 for the last couple years and I hope to do as well as Paul has done!! Scooby

From: TD
Actually 777 has a better ring to it than 666...... =D

Merry b-day Paul! I wanna be you when I grow up!

I was in terrible shape when I hit 40, thinking as I did when in my 20s and early 30s and in great shape that my physical condition would always be there. Did a hunt at 40 that just kicked my azz. It was bad..... embarrassing.... and a real eye opener. I swore to be in better shape at 50 than I was at 40. Hit 50 miles ahead of what 40 was. Now 60 is still far far better than 40 was, I think I'm pretty close to where that 50 guy was, but have to stay on it, more and more. It's certainly a lifestyle thing. A mental thing.... however one looks at "mental"...

Bowhunting, my passion, is what drives me. (drives Coach too, but more along the lines of crazy I think....) I have more things on my "gotta do" list than at any other point in my life. But must not really "have a life" as without it I don't know what I would (will) do.

Guess "we all got it comin' to us kid...." but it will have to be kickin' and screaming.....

TD-Since Paul turned me onto Bowsite , it is amazing to read what you guys hunt and how extreme you hunt at 50 and beyond. Very motivational. Treeline - your recent story was incredible. Not sure what age you were at the time, but the demands of that hunt were awesome! You mental toughness was unreal.

From: otcWill
Happy birthday buddy! Hope the next one is the best one!!

From: Glunt@work
Happy birthday Paul! I'm not going to make a big deal about being a hunting machine at a certain age because knowing you, the right thread to talk about that is long ways off in the future.

From: Mark Watkins
Happy birthday Paul!!

From: Kurt
Paul, have a great 77th on the 7th in '17. Lucky as a 7? Should be a great year for you!

From: Jaquomo
Geez, Paul, last week you didn't look a day over 76!

Have a great one and keep on truckin' as an inspiration to us all!


From: bulldancer
Happy birthday Paul, I love your stories and pictures. Hope I can still hunt at 77.

From: Shrewski
Had the pleasure of sharing a turkey camp with Paul once. He is definitely an inspiration and a heck of a good guy. Happy Birthday Paul and many more.

From: razorhead
I have never met Paul, I follow him on the computer, when the power allows it,,,,at 67 I give it my all, life is short, go for it ........ I go out west, but am very glad to come back to the UP, I find the west, too crowded, unless you are hunting.......

as for the young guys, no one is going to give it to you, you have to take it

From: Tim M

Happy birthday Paul...

From: willliamtell
So when do we get the story of Paul's life in print? You know, starting from the 'raised by wolves' beginning? There's a lot to learn from that. Congratulations! If I keep going strong for another couple decades (at least) it will be in no small part to the inspiration you and others of your ilk provide.

Hey Ben, "Once upon a time in the far north country, the buzzard creek wolf pack had just added four new arrivals to their pack; three female pups and one male pup. The alpha male sized up the new pups but his sharp eyes focused on the male pup. Something special about this new born. He didn't exactly look like the other pups as he was taller, longer, and with no tail at all.........................................................Something strange going on here, the Alpha male thought. Time will tell."

my best, Paul
