So how did you come up with your user name?
Some of you it's kinda obvious but most of you it's not.

Mine is the Miami Indian word for the Smallmouth bass. It means "fierce", the fish, not me :biglaugh:

Red hair and beard, and I am the lord of all wild things!

That was the reasoning many years ago when I got involved in forums. Now, the hair is thin and the beard is white. Wild beasts regard me as a non-threat..........sigh.

Pretty much the same as Eric, it's the same one I have been using all along, it works everywhere else so should be fine here as well.
Lefties are the only ones who hold the bow in the right hand, and my fletching is about as left-wing as I get.

Same as Eric, I was born with it.  Started with a handle 20 years ago but never saw the point and quit using it.  My name is quite sufficient.

Everybody whose last name starts with Mc or Mac gets called Mac at some point in their lives.  I started naming my pets Mc_____.  We called my dog at the time McGeorge, which seemed a better fit for her than her actual name of Georgia.  At some point one of my friends started calling me McDave, and it kind of stuck.

In 1998 I wanted to join a forum so I chose Black Dog after my lab and that was taken. I changed it to Red Dog and that was taken. I then went to reddogge and that stuck and that is handle on all forums.
