Do to unnatural migration patterns I somehow landed in Washington State and have decided to remain here. Actually I was raised in Bay City, Michigan and grew up hunting the Saginaw Bay Area. I have vivid memories of places by the names of Nyyomquayn Point (OH that spelling), Erickson Road, and Fish Point just to name a few. After High School, a graduate of TL Handy High class of 75, or I should say a couple of drunken years after high shcool I entered the Army and there I remained, until recently, for 24 years. I have just retired from the military, as of 1 Dec 00, so now I'm starting all over again, so they say. I have had the oppurtunity to see and visit countries that most people only read about in History classes or magazines, I have also exstensively tested their alcohol and on certain occasions the feamales of there particular culture. I won't dwell into that to deeply but let's just say it was one heck of a lot of fun. Waterfowling has been in my blood sence the early age of 8, I was so dam short my dad could not find a pair of waders or hip boots that would fit me. So I just pretended that I did not need a pair and went in the swamp anyway. Thankfully I have gotten a little smarter then I was at 8 years old, but sometimes I wonder. During my early years in the Military the time for Waterfowling just was not there, too many things to do and not enough time. But for the past 12 years I have made up for lost time and plan on doing so until my last dieing breath. Frankly if it was not for these magnificent creatures and the friends made over the years pursuing them this world would be quit the boring dang place. I plan on staying in Washington State, heck we usually get a 107 day season, so if you come this way send me an email and I would be happy to show you around.
