I've been lurking here a couple of months and thought it was about time to get formal. I've read a lot of great information here in the past couple of months. Glad to see a great community full of information and thanks in advance to those who contribute! New to saddle hunting and new to hunting. Just moved to mid-Missouri this past summer from Texas for wife's military assignment...yes, we move all the time. Rock climbing/mountaineering background so I'm familiar with hanging from a piece of rope in sometimes sketchy places. Looking forward to learning more and contributing where and when I can.

Welcome! Currently live in KS but grew up in MO. There are quite a few guys around there. Keep an eye out on a meet up this spring or summer to get a chance to try several products before you jump into the deep end.

Kansas and Missouri- beautiful states!

I’m already neck-deep. Have a Tethrd Phantom and have made some DIY items as well as some mods. I think I like the hunting part as a means to just DIY, climb and rappel off something!

Thanks for the welcomes!

Welcome from Maryland!
Where in MD? I did a year of prereqs for nursing school in College Park at UMD. Great School! By your name, I’m guessing you went there. Would have been a great place for undergrad. Alway fun to rub Testudo’s nose on the way into the library!

My wife graduated from college park & strongly prefers the old Testudo vs. new....... I’m just a college basketball fan but I’ll claim the name for the $ I’ve spent on student loans.... lol
Where are you going to end up in MO ? I grew up there before leaving for the Navy, been Turkey hunting in northern & central Missouri ever since.

I agree with old vs new. A mascot should look friendly, not like he's going to bite your head off. Still one of the best mascots in the NCAA despite being a turtle.

We're in St. Robert/Waynesville/Ft. Leonard Wood. Probably only another 18 months here and then onto something new that the Army may bring us.

Thank you for your service!! There’s a lot of good hunting in the state, take advantage of your stint there. Plenty of MO guys too......

Welcome! I'm just up the road from you in Rolla, you've got a LOT of land to play around with near you.
Yup, sure do! Very lucky where I am. I have a couple hundred acres right out my back door.
