    Greetings from the foothills of Boulder County!

    Lifelong Colorado elk hunter, with experience hunting deer in Kansas and hogs in Texas.

    I am a Research Engineer for a DoD contractor and a prior service active duty Army O3.

    I am also a connoisseur of vintage firearms, with a moderate multinational collection of classic military/sporting pieces, and a strong appreciation of African hunting lore and equipment.

    Depending on how things go, an African hunt could definitely be on my radar screen in the next decade or so, especially after my son gets some good elk experience under his belt.

    [Edit to add that I joined last year, but did not get around to posting until today...]

    Welcome to AH from another (hate to admit this) Boulder County, CO member! I don’t know how old your son is, but my 12 year old granddaughter just got her hunters safety certificate and now she says she needs to go to Africa with me(y)! My next trip is suppose to be for lion, but I may have to change that!:eek:
