    I guess I'm the oldster here, age wise! Been a member for 2 or 3 years, can't really remember when I actually started posting.

    I am 72, my given name is Roger, been married for 50 years (this Oct) and have a son 48. I was born and raised in southern California, my relatives came there before the gold rush. I went to the University of Southern California on a football scholarship. Graduated and spent 40 years as a Research Engineer in aerospace. Worked on the Apollo, Space Shuttle, B1, B2 and several other classified programs. Retired in 2000 and moved to SW Colorado.

    I have hunted and fished all over North America. My Dad started me hunting when I was 8, shooting at doves! I love wilderness backcountry hunting. I've done somewhere between 25 and 30 trips for mostly deer and a few elk. Celebrated my 70th bd with a trip to Thorofare in Wy. It was a 32 mile, 9 1/2 hour ride into camp....a real adventure, but the elk hunting didn't live up to its reputation. I had a 30' boat that I did lots of fishing in. Cruised it to Cabo and up the Sea of Cortez many times. Did lots of diving & fishing on it for 25 years.

    I am a rifle hunter and do lots of muzzle load hunting too. I have been a competitive shooter for over 50 years. Shot trap. skeet, benchrest, 1000 yard bp, bulls eye pistol and Cowboy Action. I am a NRA Certified RSO, Rifle & Pistol Instructor. Love reloading, do a little stockwork and raise some hay in my spare time.

    If you notice the 2nd pix, it is of a buck mule deer I shot a few years back in my apple orchard. Just average rack, but the body was unbelievable! After it was skinned, feet/legs off head off, the carcass
    weighed 204#. One of the best eating deer I have ever tasted. Probably the biggest bodied deer I have ever shot. Was a neck shot, so no wasted meat!

    This forum is a wonderful place to share ideas, ask questions and learn some new things!

At a later date, you can always come back and edit your pic and introduction if ya want too.

    If IKIC likes the idea, he can make this a sticky so the new members can easily see who they are talking to.

    I'll start in the next post.
    I guess I qualify as an old member (2/21/11) I think I was among the first to sign up on this site, but don't get on very much anymore.
    Anyway I'm a 63 year old native Oregonian, born in southern Or and now live in NE Or. Lifelong hunter, but have never hunted outside the state. Click image for larger version.

    In real life, I'm Brad to most. I've lived nearly all of my life in the Kansas City area, where I've got a serious addiction to killing deer, and stacking up gobblers and ducks. When I'm not playing, I work for a high net worth niche insurance company. I spend a bunch of time in the office, but they give me more time to play than I deserve.
    This May will mark my 5th wedding anniversary, I'm still not really sure what I did to deserve the good fortune of finding a woman that would put up with my nonsense. No kids at this point, but I'm sure that'll change sooner or later.
    I didn't get bit by the Western bug until 4 years ago, which is a shame, cause I'd have a pile of points by now, if I knew better.. I'm still waiting for my first elk, but it'll come in due time, I've passed up opportunities on cows, waiting for that elusive bull.

    Pictures are of my three biggest whitetails, a 3man limit of greenheads (2 bands that day, none were mine...), and two gobblers that I called in for my wife and my best friend, maybe 15 minutes and a mile apart.

    My mind is a raging torrent, flooded with rivulets of thought cascading into a waterfall of creative alternatives.

    Thanks. All those bucks actually came off the hillside in the top right of that pic.
