My records only go back to 1999.

I went to the Leatherwall forum and searched my handle, then scrolled back to the earliest date recorded.

travis

only you can decide if the shot you took was a good, ethical shot. If it was, then it happens to the best of us, it's part of hunting. If it wasn't, then learn from it.

Found posts on Leatherwall of mine going back to 1999. Went by Luke back then.

I'm brand new, just getting out of the service and all. Ive been bowhunting since I was 14 though. I didn't get my first bow deer until I was in my 20's.

From: wapiti
24-Nov-14
16 years. To bad some???one had to give travis a hard time for losing a deer. I've seen the pro's lose deer with the best help in the world. I assume those perfect hunters are new to the sport and got there first deer, so, 1 for 1 perfect. I didn't lose one in 12 years, probably 20 deer, and then it happened, and it bummed me out. Left another until morning and found bones.

For me it's been 3 months. I've learned more about bow hunting in these 3 months than I have in years on my own. Thanks to you guys. - Duncan

HunterBrad,

Thank you for your service. How many years were you in the military?

26-Nov-14
I think I started coming on here in 2001.

From: HunterBrad
26-Nov-14
I enlisted for 4 but got involuntarily extended a few times which brings me to 6 years 8 months. I speak Arabic so they had a hard time letting me go. It got very frustrating for me as I wanted to finish college and get some kind of stability. In any case it all worked out and now I'm married' just bought a nice little farmhouse and we found out that we're expecting our first child. So lots of exciting things going on!

From: Mike in CT

I'm not sure; it was either late 1998 or the beginning of 1999 for me. I've gotten to meet a lot of the "regulars" at the Sportmens Shows or testifying in Hartford for Sunday hunting over the years. Lots of really good people here.

Brad-Semper fi Devil Dog! I did my 4 years and then went to college with the intention of re-enlisting and going into OCS. Met my wife in my sophomore year and the plans changed! Congrats on the new baby; that will be a huge change but a very blessed one.

Thanks Mike. Going through baby names and all but it still hsnt quite hit me yet! I taught hand to hand combat at OCS while stationed on Quantico. Semper Fi indeed.

Semper Fi and congratulations Brad on the baby and house. I've been on the site for 4 or 5 years and read it for a year before I joined it. Great site with some knowledgeable people who post some great ideas on safety and hunting issues.I served 1990 to 1998 in the Reserve out of New Haven . I've been bow Hunting since 1984 and have taken quite a few with the bow , muzzle loader , shotgun and rifle over the years . Deer hunting is a passion of mine I've self video a few hunts years ago and aim to get back into that with some of the great advancements they made in cameras should be a little easier now . I also enjoy spring turkey season which was on hold for a few years while my babies where young but now my youngest is 18 months and the other 2 are in pre K so the wife can handle them better and allow me some extra time in the woods.

I always wonder what’s going on when ‘Bou dredges up a 10 YO thread…..

But FWIW, I go back to 1st-gen Leatherwall… ‘98 or ‘99 ish. I searched my handle and traced it back to the first record once, but it took way more time than I had budgeted….. LOL

From: spike78

From: Shawn

From: Ace

Pat could certainly tell us who joined when. If I'm not mistaken this site has been around since about 1996 or so. I think I joined a couple of years after that.

Pat, when did you start Bowsite?
