    Hello

    Hello everybody. Wasn't really sure where to put this, but here goes ....

    I'm a long time lurker and figured it was about time I joined. I live in north central Idaho, which allows me to enjoy all kinds of hunting – upland, waterfowl and big game. As far as big game I've taken deer, elk and black bear. Drew a tag for moose once, but didn't get one. If I had to choose, I guess I enjoy mule deer hunting the most.

    So anyways, I recently turned 50 years old...still can't believe that. Well, as some of you can relate, raising a family, career and such has taken a lot of my time and money. So, after a long heart to heart with myself, and my wife, I've decided this is my decade (or two I hope)!!! I have good job, plenty of vacation, an empty nest and a very supportive wife. At present I'm making plans get my backside in gear, get into the best shape I can and do as much hunting as I can pack into my life until I can't go any more.

    I hope to swap stories with you all, talk guns, new equipment and scheme and dream about hunts we'd like to take.

    Thanks,
    A6F

    Welcome to the site. Since you have been lurking no need to tell you there are some great folks on here. I am little ways from 50 yet with 3 girls still at home, they likely will be on thier own by that time. I hope to expand my hunting horizons even more then. For now Idaho looks like a good place to go, I am planning a mule deer hunt there this fall. I may not be far from you in 8 months.

    Welcome ya ol' fart!

    Looking forward to your stories, and input. I always like the "Gettin in Shape" threads that chronicle a long term workout journey.

    Welcome. I've hunted ID many years. Good and bad luck with the hunts I've done. Ask questions and get involved with the forum and discussions. Lots of great help and info here. Look forward to hearing how your plans go for the future of your hunting.

    Glad to have you A6F! I am on the down hill side of 48 well on my way to 49, so I totally get what you are talking about...lol Looking forward to getting to know you better.

    I was an 06 fan for years, but it was the .27-06, aka, .270 Winchester ;-)

    Thanks for the welcome fellas. I'm sure I'll enjoy the company here.

    UH, yes the old -06 is a proud papa for sure. I've always thought I'd like to get one of his less legitimate children a .264-06 A.I. but that's a story for a different thread.

    Thanks again,
    AFF
