i've been shooting for about ten years now and love it. i've been fishing since before i can remember and the idea of combining the two just couldn't be more appealing. i'm in the middle of the ok panhandle so it's a drive to water. when we do make it i like to make the most of it and do all we can. i have two nephews near by that will be undertaking this new adventure as well. rigged up the older one (he turned 13 just yesterday) a bow. still at a loss on the little one. he's 8 and skinny!!! i will be looking on here for your help in finding him a suitable starter and i've also already found some great ideas on modifying my 14 foot v hull aluminium boat. thanks for the site and access to all your brains!!! have a great evening!
