Hi: My name is Bill Eastwood & I have taken long walks on the beach ... a nude beach ... and I'm here to tell you those people don't look anything like they do in the movies.

Born & raised in Brooklyn, NY (baby boomer) back when children didn't have to be accompanied by an adult & we didn't even have a key to our back door. When I went into the Army, I got to see N.J. for a couple of months, a little over a year on the East German border (before we were friends) 61 days in French Indo China & finished up in KY. The Army help put me thru College & like SAILFISH I have a BA in Biology.

Got married & moved to Long Island ... have 2 children & 4 grandchildren. I am a semi retired Private Detective. I've hunted deer in NY & NJ, Elk in CO & NM. For 12 years I've planed for a Caribou hunt in Canada when I retired, but my knees retired before I did & now that hunt is iffy.

I like shooting; shot NRA Pistol competition in my younger days. I am an NRA Certified Pistol & Rifle Instructor ... love teaching kids to shoot. Okay, now you know way more than you wanted to. PHOTO ENCLOSED.

Hey everyone!

I just thought since I'm new here, I would start a thread where we could say a little something about what we do when not hunting.

My name is Mike Clark, I'm married with two beautiful childeren. I am a surgical technologist in a small local hospital, and when I'm not hunting, I'm riding my road bike along backroads staying in shape and looking for deer and turkeys!

During the winter after deer season, I do weight lifting and snowshoing to stay fit.

Come on people ... don't be shy ... we all want to know a little about each other ... jump in. [:)]

Well , My name is Troy, I'm 39 not married (getting married friday the 30th) no kids, two dogs.  I have lived in WI my whole life and currently live 3 blocks from the shore of lake Michigan.  I do hunt some on this side of the state but do most of my hunting in central WI on my uncles farm.  I am a pilot for a large company for the past two years and flew corparate charter in Eau Claire for ten years before that. My career as a pilot has given me the chance to meet alot of interesting people, some famous and some not, but I have been to every state in the U.S. and every province in canada and some central and south american countries as well.

Troy:
You might want to rethink that wedding date. There might be better times for a whitetail hunter to have a wedding anniversary than the beginning of the rut.
***

I'm Steve.
Places I've lived: Warren County, PA (where I was born) Quincy, Mass (where I went to college), Kansas City (where I went to seminary), North Carolina, Washington D.C., and back to Warren County, PA in 1981.

Places I've worked: Meat shop, machine shop, churches, and a large catalog company for 24 years, where I learned a lot about writing.

What I do: I do freelance writing for several outdoor magazines (only once for D&DH, but hopefully more in the future), I write a local newspaper column, and I speak at sportsmen's dinners at churches and other events. I'm also pastor of a small church, and the writing and speaking supplement my income.

My family: I have a son in South Korea (teaching English there) and a daughter in Chicago (in medical school.) I've been married to the lovely Barbara for 34½ years. She works at the local hospital scheduling surgeries.

Where I've hunted: I do most of my hunting in PA, and since I live just 4 miles from the PA/NY border I started hunting there about 4 years ago. I've also hunted in Alaska, Ontario, Maine and a little in North Carolina.

Where I'd like to hunt: In America, I'd like to hunt whitetails in Ohio, Iowa, Illinois, Wisconsin, Minnesota and a few other places. I'd also like to hunt antelope, caribou and wild pigs.

For fun: I've been working with my 80-year old father at inventing a new turkey call (which isn't quite perfected yet), and I hope to call in a turkey with it in the spring for him.

Vikinghater: I am a pilot

 
Well, I guess that gives you an advantage over the rest of us in finding the best deer populations.  [:D][:D]

My name is Rick. I am 45, have been married to my high school sweetheart for 25 years, have three sons ages 23, 20, and 8, and a daughter age 14. I am a Certified Welding Inspector for a large concrete pump and mortar machine manufacturer in Wisconsin. I have lived in Wisconsin all my life. I have been a welder since I was 16 and am certified in almost all welding processes. Received my CWI certificate from Hobart Institue of Welding Technology, Troy, Ohio in 2006. I have hunted many places in Wisconsin but own 400 acres with my brother in the Rhinelander area where I do the majority of my hunting. Hunting is definitely my obssession. I have coached my boys in little league baseball and currently still coach my youngest son. I coached my daughter's volleyball team when she was in grade school. When I am not hunting deer, I enjoy fishing for musky with my sons. My musky obssession is almost as intense as deer hunting [;)]. I thouroughly enjoy spending time with my wife and kids.

I'm with Patriot, I like long walks on the beach as well...
 
On a serious note though, I'm a portfolio manager for a large bank in St. Paul, MN.  I live, hunt, and grew up in WI. 
 
Besides whitetails, my hobbies include but aren't limited to musky fishing (regular fishing/ice fishing too, but muskies are another one of my passions), playing as much slow-pitch softball as I can in the summer (I play for one of Patriot's teams), working out, investing/finance related subjects, snowmobiling, etc...there is more I'm sure that I will have to add later!!!  [:D]

I am 52, a licensed veterinary technician and I run a wildlife rehabilitation center inside a large humane society. I have also been a working musician my whole life.
 
My only other obsession is falconry.
