    "Old" Members Introduction (with pics)

    Alright, I guess it's my turn. I go by the name of Travis, folks at work call me bird dog. I'm 26 and spent most of my life in Reno Nevada. I did spend a short, important stint in north eastern Cali. I grew up hunting with my dad since I was 5 he had a guide service and I was always in the truck when he went if I wasn't in school. I've hunted nv, ca, az, and wy. All for either deer or antelope. God blessed me with my first limited entry elk tag in Wyoming and I hope to fulfill on a great opportunity. I also am heading to South Africa to hunt for 2 weeks this year and hope to capitalize on opportunities with my bow. I used to be a hardcore duck hunter and my best season I killed 200 ducks and close to 90 geese. Nowadays I focus on western big game.

    I'm an apprentice to one of the best hunting researchers in the game, I'm also a self proclaimed gear snob and have written a few reviews for various products. I am perfectly content with the gear I have this year though(for the most part)

    I apply for 7-9 western states a year, I started 4 years ago so I'm kinda behind on points except for Nevada.

    I work as a municipal fireman and enjoy anything outdoors. I road bike, just picked up a mountain bike and a kayak. My wife and I spend a lot of time in the desert looking for cool stuff. I also like gold prospecting in the spring and I take a lot of self defense classes that involves pistols and carbines. I'm a firearm enthusiast and love to tinker with rifles to squeeze every ounce of accuracy out of them.

    I have a wife and 2 kids that are 2 and 4. They are all awesome and put up with my time in the field on my tags and friends who are kind enough to let me join in on their adventure.

    Here are a few pics.

    I've hunted with Ungava Adventures, it's a first-class operation. We hunted out of Gordon Lake. If you have any ? pm me.

    Hello I am Coloradov and I like to hunt big mule deer more than any other animal. I live in South Central Colorado. Top left buck is a 33 1/4" wide to give perspective.





    I did not tag out the past 2 years but here is the wife's first buck ever that she took this year.

    Could I possibly use some of these pictures for a couple of FB posts? If I can could you send them to scott.reekers@eastmans.com? Thanks!
