Eight hunting seasons ago, Tony Reaves was in a tree stand with bow and arrow at ready, watching for a deer — and bored stiff.
“I just wanted a different challenge,” he said.
That’s what led him to the sling bow and a whole new way of shooting and hunting.
For the first time, sling bows will be legal for hunting deer, turkey and small game this season in Virginia — everything but bear and elk. Give Reaves, a South Boston resident, credit for introducing this novel method of hunting to the state.
