Hi, I'm Robert Gate, a hunter from Texas and Founder of ArcheryTopic.
I first learned archery from my dad when I was 12 years old. He gave me a Mathew bow as a gift and instantly fell in love with the pursuit.
In 2009 I had my first taste of hunting, venturing onto public land, where I was lucky to harvest my first deer, a doe. It was such a strong experience that deer hunting together has become a tradition, that we look forward to every fall.
Since those early days my interest in deer and bowhunting has continued to grow, which has lead to me launching this site; to share experience, knowledge and information with other existing and would-be hunters.
Deer hunting with bow is a challenging endeavour. It takes commitment, persistence and a lot of patience, along with practice, practice and practice.
I hope to help you to reduce some of the growing pains so that we can all share in the joys of a successful hunt.
