I'm a long-time lurker of close to 18 months. I grew up in Southeastern Washington State where I hunted mostly chukar and ducks, with a wirehaired pointing griffon, then a lab, and most recently an excellent german shorthair. I've started hunting ducks more in the past few years since my knees are coming from together and can't handle the side hills any more. Degrees in Wildlife Biology and Mechanical Engineering. Former Army officer, current decoy foamer. Reload my own ammunition, brew my own beer, part-time wanna be blacksmith/knife maker. I now live on Grays Harbor in Western Washington with my wife of 19 years and my six-year-old son.
