Ed Rainville, 63, top, and Reagh Greenleaf, 61, both of Merrimack, have been avid hunters since they were 8 and 9 years old respectively. During hunting season, both can be found seeking whitetail deer with their bows. Rainville prefers a compound bow while Martin uses a traditional one. "It's the challenge," Rainville said. "Whitetail are one of the smartest animals. To play in their 'sandbox' and outsmart them, I find that a big accomplishment."
