    Hello fellow hunters! Just joined and thought it appropriate to introduce myself, before barging in on a conversation thread later on...although my "online chat" etiquette and experience is nil, felt like the right thing to do. I have been reviewing and enjoying the site for a few weeks now. A wealth of experience and knowledge resides on this forum, so I am thankful to have an opportunity to be a part of the platform.

    I typically hunt a combination of deer, boar, bear and birds here in the US. I normally hunt Illinois, North Carolina, South Carolina and Virginia annually. I also truly enjoy offshore fishing, out of North And South Carolina and Trout fishing NC, Va and Tenn.

    I have always had a goal of hunting Africa, and joining this forum is another step in that direction. I understand there is a difference between dreaming and planning, and I am somewhere in between the two.

    Just thought I would introduce myself and say hello. I really enjoy the three threads and reading the posts!
    I will reach out to the community when the time is right, and jump in on the conversations when I feel I can add something of value. I will also support the sponsors of the site! Thanks for having me!

    Welcome TByrd! Good looking young hunter standing next to you in your avatar.
    TByrd, I was lucky enough to get to drive a 1957 T-Bird in 1958! Haven't had the opportunity since.

    TByrd, nice to have you join us. This site is addicting, You will be spending many happy hours here. I see that you have a built in hunting buddy. Keep him at it. I've been hunting with my sons for almost 40 years. Trust me, the memories are priceless.

    Thanks for the warm welcomes! Yes, having a hunting buddy is nice...hard to tell from the photo, actually my daughter. Trying to show her there is more out there than shopping malls and tablets/video games! Thanks again, looking forward to the interaction....looks to be an awesome group of folks on the site?
