Hey guys, been reading the forum for a bit and decided it was my kinda place so I decided to join. You seem like a great bunch. My name is Forrest, I am 34 and live in lynchburg va, I have been persuing game for the better part of 24 years. I went bow only 10 years ago and made the switch to a recurve 3 years ago and have never looked back! Here is a picture of my opening day bear, harvested in the George Washington National Forest. I am looking forward to getting his age back from the DGIF, it is estimated that he is 12-15 years old. We had to cut into his gum to get to the tooth to be removed it was so warn down.  

<<<<<>>>>
I am the man that I am because I am loved, because I know the value of family, and Christ remains at the center of my life.

Forrest,

Welcome to the Gang and congratulations on the bear. Let us know his age when you find out.

Looks like you've spent a good portion of your life in the outdoors. I look forward to reading more of you traditional hunting stories.

PS You will have to down size your picture or it will vanish. Big pictures take up too much space on the server "I think" anyway 640 pixels wide max. Go here for other rules  http://tradgang.com/noncgi/ultimatebb.php?ubb=get_topic;f=1;t=068767
You have found the best traditional hunting site on the web.

Welcome and nice bear.
