    N.G. here just wanting to say hello. I'm retired military and still trying to make up for some lost time by hunting and shooting as much as I can. I enjoy deer and hog hunting the most, but always enjoy trying something new as well.

    I also enjoy collecting guns, mostly rifles in big game calibers. Back into lever rifles recently and enjoying shooting and hunting with some big bores, 45-70, .444, .450, etc.

    Anyway, thanks for letting me stop by and a great day to all !

    mrkirker, I'm north of Nashville, near the Kentucky line. I hunt both states every year, occasionally, both in the same day...lol.

    Both in the same day, why that's the best of both worlds! Any white stuff on the ground there this evening?

    Woke to about 5" this morning, looking at 7* tonight. As others have commented "So much for this Global Warming stuff....!" If only the deer season was still open here.......;)
