    Hi all, grew up in Michigan and have been bow hunting since I was 12 and shooting a bow since i was 8. I found a old album at a garage sale back when I was eight of fred bear and curt gowdy and I would sit up at night and listin to it. My dad was not a hunter and he was very supportive of me wanting to get into archery. by the time I was 18 I had shot quiet a few whitetails with my bow and I was getting a good rep from my friends and others who new of my skill. I then needed to get out of Michigan , I wanted elk ,moose , mule deer, and all the animals you see in the mag's but I was not getting any where fast on min. wage so off to the navy for a few years and I got to hunt all over and take all kinds of game with my bow. I now live in Oregon and love it here Its not a big trophey state but there is plent to go around. I'll show some pics, [​IMG] [​IMG] IMG]http://img2.photobucket.com/albums/v11/rbfree/PIC00045.JPG[/IMG] [​IMG][​IMG] I hope to get to know you all better . cheers Rich
