    Hello my name is Michael.
    I have been living in British Columbia, Canada for the last 20 years. I was born and raised in the Yukon Territory where I lived for 30 years.
    I am a graduate of the Colorado School of Trades Gunsmithing Program. I was a full time gunsmith for about 15 years.
    I have hunted in the Yukon, B.C., Colorado and most recently South Africa.
    Nice to meet everyone !

    Welcome to AH.

    Do you happen to have a hunting report you'd like to share from that trip to Africa?
    Please share it when you get a chance.

    A gun smith in the mix won't hurt at all.

    Man that's a good question. It's been 20 years , but I have some good memories from nights at the Kopper King up on the highway. The 98 and the Capital were always crazy. But who knows now. Different times and crowds now I suppose.
    Sorry James I can't be of much help.
