Miguel mentioned in another thread that us older codgers need our own sub forum. That probably aint gonna happen but here something I will add.

I have a good friend who is like me and has some health issues that have slowed him down. He has chosen to give up on hunting and the outdoors all together. :confused:

I am gonna give up about 2 days before the funeral personally.

I figure as long as i can walk in the woods, i'll hunt.
When it comes to the point that i have trouble walking in the woods then MAYBE i'll think about giving up.

Like many I'm sure, I hope my final day is in the stand. Hopefully the stand that is the farthest back in the woods and in a box blind because I want my hunting buddies to have a great story about what a nightmare it was to get me out of the woods!!!
 
Great Idea !

If this should come to fruition-there should be some sort of sign on process in which anyone that wants to be on it has to somehow declare their birthdate-so that the forum could not be hijacked so easily. I am on a couple sites that have 60 and older-there is no restricted access-but with technology being what it can be-Why not ??:clap::cool::flag:

I'm 57 and having foot surgery 8/17 to fuse bones in my foot. I will be in a walking boot opening day of gun season, but i will be there if I have to put a ground blind around my Mule.....already ordered on that it will fit in.

I ain't quitting!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Not 55 but I do and have hunted with plenty that are. Hunting is lower on the priority list. When I was younger the roads on Friday night and camps were full of deer hunters especially on opening gun day and doe days. Now days it doesn't take much of excuse to keep people home. I think the womenz have more of a say so than they use to.
 
I used to hunt next door to a guy who is in a wheel chair. He had a rig built so he could get out of the chair and on his 4 wheeler. He had 3 sided blinds built so he could just pull his atv in there and hunt. He killed some nice deer and turkeys like that.

If theres a will there way !!!!

Just turned 70 and still looking forward to hunting this fall. I walk a little slower and appreciate shooting rails on my ladders. Used to hunt alone a lot but now prefer to have someone else in the woods with me. Don't even consider not hunting...... But don't shoot as much as I used to, lots more watching than shooting, just as enjoyable.

Alright GT.
Even though you old and decrepit, lassoing still ain't legal


55 this season, thankfully I joined a club my 8 year old grandson and his father are in so they can help the "old man" along.
Did get a compliment though from my grandson.
He said I was the only man over 50 something he knows that still had all his hair and teeth.:D
