I am 81 and have bowhunted over 50 years and have not slowed down. Hunt by myself and have 8 different places I hunt from my sub-division to Fort Stewart which is 50 miles. Am hog hunting FS this summer and doing some scouting for deer season. I do some hard exercising every day except Sunday which keeps me in shape to climb trees. Hunting by myself is not the safest thing to do but I got to be out in woods looking for tracks. No bait, camera, scents or calls. Just my PSE and Summit.

The way my knees are, I`m not gonna make as far as you have, and while I admire no man, I tip my hat to you, Sir. The best to you. :cheers:

It would not drag out an animal but some put a cart on the back and then you could.

In general I exit, dump the bike and go back in sometimes with help. That allows the deer to die in peace too.

Also here is a video on the benies of electric bike while hunting

For those that are veterans out there Rambo bikes has a great deal going on for their 750 watt mid-drive G3 model. Regularly it's $2600 plus but they have it on their website on sale for $1599 plus you get free bike rack and fenders (this weekend for fathers day). That's a good deal on it's own, but if you are a veteran you can request a code from them and get the bike for 20% less as a military discount, that's only $1280 for the bike. If you have done any research at all on electric bikes you will know that's an outstanding deal on a mid drive electric bike, especially a Rambo bike. I just thought I would pass that along.

I'll be 68 this November and I'm still determined to meet the Great Spirit in the woods with my weapons and wampum close by. In the mean time I'm not as good as I once was but I'm good once as I ever was.

I'm only 73, but I want to be like you when I grow up!
 
I’m 58 just had Back Surgery and having a fit because I cannot drive yet. Surgery was performed a month ago and walking and exercises. Just taking it slowly bow season is probably out but rifle season will be welcomed. I’m going to hunt and fish and work until I simply cannot go or pass away. That’s just the way it is. When you love the outdoors it’s
