    Intro from a new member

    Hi all!

    On other forums it is complementary to introduce oneself, tell a little about yourself and tell a hunting story from the past.
    About me; I live in Eastern Oregon and love it, I was in western Oregon for 12 years prior going to school and getting my life started with a family. I love hunting everything but miss hunting blacktails in the rut (that is my only complaint about being on the east side). I have been a official Oregon measurer for about 11 years,(I have applied to Boone & Crockett a few times) but I really don’t care about becoming a B & C measurer because I really only got into doing it to be able to judge animals better. I believe that Oregon is an underrated state as far as hunting goes as I believe that Oregon can be as good as anywhere in the western United States with a little prep and scouting time but I guess to the naysayers that it works out better for me. I put in for 9 states including Oregon and wish I could put in for all of them but it is just out of my budget at this point in time. I really look forward to drawing some good tags in the future. I am primarily a bow hunter but have hunted all methods (rifle, bow, muzzleloader). I look forward to the day that I finally draw the tag that I have been chasing for 16 years, wenaha bow elk tag, at this point in my life I could draw most any other elk tag in Oregon but for me it is more about being able to tell my grandchildren that I waited patiently for x amount of years to draw the wenaha tag.
    Hunting story;
    I am going to keep the story short but by far the best hunt that I have ever been on and the only tag that I have ever drawn random was my Oregon sheep tag in 2003. I shot a California sheep that scored 175 net even though it is missing 5 inches on its left horn. I have half a slam (other sheep is a dall) my lifelong goal is to one day have a grand slam.

    Yes sir on the John Day I love that area. I used to be an assistant fishing guide on the river and saw a lot of game.

    Welcome. One of my best friends lived in the Bend area and I spent a lot of time there fishing with him. Last thing we did together was a chukkar hunt before he passed away a few tears back. Miss him and the Bend area, especially the bird hunting.

    Welcome aboard.

    Welcome to the forum. There is a great bunch of people on here. It is always nice to see somone introduce themselves first. I know what you mean about the blacktails. I would go crazy if I couldn't hunt them every year.

    Welcome aboard! There's a pretty good group of folks here.
    My mind is a raging torrent, flooded with rivulets of thought cascading into a waterfall of creative alternatives.
