Hey there everyone! I am new to this forum. I've been a member on azod for awhile and found it to be quite the chore to become "a part of it". Not that everyone isn't cool and all, but it was a bit "chilly" till I got a number of post's in. I read the thread on being polite to newbies here and liked what I heard. I am an avid hunter and outdoorsman and have alot to offer other people in thr way of hunting knowledge. I grew up in AK and rifle hunted all of my life since I was about 7 yrs. old. I just got back from an archery cow elk hunt and had an absolute BLAST! I hunt quail all season long and LOVE to archery hunt deer, turkey, and elk! I just started archery last year and have not tagged out, but have gotten really close many times. Just a matter of time and patience. Look forward to interacting with you all on this forum.
