Hey WillyP - like the others, I'd encourage you to let your family know how you feel, I'll bet they'd bend over backwards to make sure you're there with them. They may think that the fire is out in your belly to be out there, and it doesn't sound like it. My Dad was in his mid-70's and used to say "I'm not going hunting this year, I don't want to hold you back" (I was only 30 years old at the time). I told him, having you with me in the woods means a lot more to me than getting a deer or pheasant, etc. He continued to go till the day he died, and we both cherished every day in the woods or on the stream together. Speak up, let him know your feelings.
Take an older friend hunting or fishing - they're the reason we do what we do!
