Hey everybody, I've been registered here since May 2012 shortly after Jesse and others started the site. I registered here after Jesse invited me to check it out way back then. I haven't ever posted much on here because I just didn't have time for two sites since I spent a lot of time (over 5,000 posts!) on another website which I got involved with in July 2006. The other site was a good place for several years and I met a lot of good guys on there. Eventually I was rewarded with the title of "pro staff" (which meant absolutely nothing other than a title). After several years of that it was time for something new. Most of the guys I used to talk bowhunting with have worked their way over here so now I'm here too. Don't worry I'm not a loud mouth, know-it-all! I like to talk bowhunting much more than I like to argue or brag about myself.

About me: I live in Oak Hill, Ohio, hunt my 35 acres, my FIL/MIL's 120 acres, and a few other properties in Jackson and Scioto Counties. I still pack my first bow, a Q2XL, and probably will until I die or win the lottery! After about 10 years of bowhunting nearly every day of the season and teaching myself how to be an ok hunter things have changed a little for me since I have 1 and 3 year old boys (future bowhunters). The hunting has decreased, the scouting has really decreased, but I still spend my fair share of time in a tree.

I look forward to talking outdoors, mainly bowhunting, which like many of you is my passion.

Welcome buddy. I saw you posted earlier today and checked out your profile. Noticed you'd been around since 2012 with only 3 or so posts. Glad to have you. I think you'll find a great group of guys here in addition to the ones from the other site who moved over. Our forum is member moderated and beheld to no sponsors. No nazi mods here. If you see an ad it's because they either give all members a discount on products, or we know them personally. We believe in passing it on as a thank you to our members who without them this place would be a personal diary.

With that said, we also recognize post counts as a semi authoritative badge of honor for forum members. They've read a ton and contributed toward the greater good of information sharing. As such we believe a person should be recognized for that no matter the forum. Send me a PM with what your post count was there and you'll be given credit here. It's the least we could do to put y'all on the same standing and just recognition you had elsewhere.

Welcome aboard!

You've got to try and make it to one of the TOO get togethers. I always look forward to tipping a few with Blackbeard around a camp fire. Lots of good stories to share for sure!

I'm sure youve seen our "deer beard" thread. With a name like blackbeard, you have got to share with some of us older guys, How do you keep it black? We get laughed at in the store buying "just for men.

My beard is more grey than black any more.

Ditto. I'd change my user name to greybeard but my older brother uses that one already.
