Hello All

Postby Yooper » Mon Dec 28, 2015 3:26 am

Hello there. I go by many names, some not so pleasant and some that are pleasant. Yooper is one of the Pleasant ones. I grew up in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan, AKA, Gods country. I spend 9 years in the wonderful state of Wisconsin where I met several amazing people and learned a whole bunch. I started my outdoor adventures as a youngster in an old Iron Mining town. We had a lake, bluff, swamps, creeks, old iron ore stock piles, a flooded mine pit and woods. I had no choice but to learn the outdoors. Sometimes things were learned by accident and sometimes things were taught. By the age of 6 I was helping my dad with skinning and stretching muskrats and by the age of around 10, I was setting my own muskrat and mink traps. It was also this same age I starting walking through said terrain with my single shot 20 gauge looking for anything I could eat. Yes, I was 12, walking with a gun all by myself, sometimes with a friend, in the big north woods. It was the best growing up I can imagine. Bowhunting didn't come until the age of approx. 23 years old. A PSE Nova led my way but I never did shoot anything with it. I'm a fly fisherman, Hardware fisherman, Ice fisherman, Bow hunter, gun hunter, trapper and general outdoor lover. I look forward to learning more about each of you and telling you more about me. Take care and thanks for putting the forum together.
