I am a volunteer fireman so I use our town abbr. and my firefighting number. Next to hunting being a volunteer fireman is my second passion. Then my last name at the end.

Louie Anderson, the comedian once had a cartoon tv show that was quite hilarious as I recall, I believe he actually grew up in wisconsin in real life, he did on the show at least, and one of the shows was about the "Husky Musky" a mysterious monstrous fish/musky that supposedly roamed the waters. I'm slightly overweight currently, naturally tend to be bulky, and I love musky fishing!
My Dad started calling me Moose when I was a kid. I think he got it from the Archie series comic mags...you know, big and dumb. Funny! Only my friends call me Moose now. Big Moose seems a good fit.
Jen...good fight! You rock!
Every hunting season you miss is one you can not make up.
I used to use OldNo7 for sports forums & online games, but since I have had a turn of events in my life and had to add the NoMore (that Jack nearly killed me and I mean it, it kicked my butt real good).
TwoShot on a couple other hunting forums, but from now on everywhere I am NoMoreOldNo7
Below are a couple pics, but they are pre-cancer, I'm much prettier now
My nickname on the logging sports team at school is either Maverick or Moose. I didn't want anyone thinking I'm a moose hunter (only because I haven't had the opportunity) so maverick it is. And if the wife wouldn't kill me I'd marry my 7 mag!!
I was looking for info on a muzzle loader hunt I was going on when I first got on here and it was the best thing I could think of at the time.
like to kill west coast cackler geese. fun to call and even greater to kill.
Grew up in Wyoming of mostly Germanic decent, grandfather was a 8 year old German immigrant (came in with his parents of course) in the 1920s and then fought in every single campaign as an American in WW2.
While I was in Afghanistan I used to find them growing and couldn't believe they existed there too. This symbol of purity, power and the mountains.
I have lived and hunted in Germany and in several places in Europe where the Edelweiss flower grows. And I always took photos of them because of the symbolism of Alpine, they only grow from about 5000-12,000 feet and only in really crappy soil that usually isn't fit for much else.
Because of that movie/musical Sound of Music, a lot of people all over the world are familiar with them. But most people have never seen one.
I was on a gardening forum looking for something else and found an entire group of people that didn't live in the right area trying to grow them and failing.
That concept reminded me of myself. In the military I have lived on 5 continents, lived in 8 nations, and have over 800 days deployed to the warzone. I been unfortunate enough to be stationed in a lot of places I never cared for, and every time I am in the mountains my heart sings.
Kind of the like the Edelweiss I flourish in the mountains.
