Easy.  Someone gave me that name in bootcamp in 1966 and it stuck until 1970.  Makes a good one for forums too. Used to write long "dog stories" for forum replies.

In the early 1050's I was born and raised in a small lakeside community in Western Michigan named "Waukazoo Woods" that was named after a tribe of Waukazoo indians that settled in our area long before I was born.  We were located on the north shore of an inland lake called "MA CA TA WA" meaning "black water" in the native tounge.

Hence:  macatawa

As my username, I use '1Bullet1Kill' on the Gunbroker website and '1Arrow1Kill' on the ebay website.  Thought I use the latter on Trad Gang - obvious reasons. 

I say, "I like to think positive".  Others say,  "Denny's just a dreamer".  Suppose I'm a little of each.

Note:  TG Administrator Tony Van Dort and I graduated HS together in 1971 and trampled the same grass and beach sand along Lake Macatawa in Holland, MI.  I stayed while he's now in South Carolina.  We hadn't spoke in 'forever' until we recent reconnected here on Trad Gang.  Small World!

I did a couple section hikes on the Appalachian Trail with some buddies when I was younger. One morning a buddy gave me my trail name saying I snored like an “Old Bear”.  I have been using it as a user name on forums ever since.

First name Pete, last initial A = PeteA. Wish I was more creative. I get razed here and on other sites regarding how it sounds like PETA!

Callsign given to me when I first started flying fighters (F-4s at the time) in the Navy.  Had to do with a run in with a very aggressive bee that stung me in the a** just as I sat down in the ejection seat to man up for a flight.  I jumped up and yelled a few choice words.  The plane captain scrambled up the boarding ladder to see what was wrong and nearly fell off when I told him what the problem was. An hour latter after an intense air combat maneuvering exercise (max G's) we landed and the ground crew, which were all guys that worked for me, met me at the plane and carried me into maintenance control where they had written up two maintenance discrepancies on the plane.  One was for FOD (foreign object damage) in the cockpit.  The sign off for that was to remove the dead bee.  The other one was for a broken aviator, and the sign off for that was to remove the stinger from my a**.  I had a welt the size of a salad plate and had another hop to fly later that afternoon.  Smart a**es gave me a wad of bubble wrap to sit on for that flight.  The callsign stuck for the rest of my career and I still have guys who never call me by anything else.

Sitting in my tree stand one evening I had two fawns come in and bed down right underneath me... I figured they must have thought  I'm "Harmless"

Zwickey fever is a term my dad used every time he killed a deer with his bow, he said that because he used nothing but Zwickey broadheads. I sometimes use other broadheads but always come back to Zwickeys. You can always find some in my quiver.
Now therefore take, I pray thee, thy weapons, thy quiver and thy bow, and go out to the field, and take me some venison;
Genesis 27:3
