Out here in the west, you have to earn your trail name. It's an honor bestowed upon you by your friends for some moment of brilliance within your life-like being called "sugar pants". The name is yours for a lifetime.

My name "Huckleberry" originally evolved from the 1958 Hanna/Berbara show "Huckleberry Hound". My parents were always quick to draw comparisions between me and the show's main character- a dim-witted, good-natured hound dog minus the Southern drawl.

As a young boy, My backyard was filled with new discoveries. I endlessly managed to get myself in trouble in the strangest places. I was the boy stuck in the culvert, for example (I near caught that frog by the way). I was easily talked into most of my predicaments...before there was "Mikey", it was let's get "Huckleberry"-he'll do anything!

Then came the movie "Tombstone" with Val Kilmer. As Doc Holiday, Mr Kilmer's line "I'm your huckleberry" pretty much said it all for me. Here was a guy willing to put it all on the line for what he believe in. He was present with a challenge- a situation he embraced with open arms. That's me... :rolleyes:

Four generations of my family have been lumberjacks to some extent. I may be the last, not sure yet. Anyway a woodhick was a lumberjack that stayed in the woods and had little to do with the outside world. When he was in the world with "normal people" he felt out of place. I also compete to some extent in lumberjack events and took the name woodhick many years ago. And why not, when I'm not in the woods I feel out of place. I just don't feel comfortable in this present world.

Well on the old site I went by PA Spike King. When I started hunting in the early 80's on the first day,at the age of 12 I killed a spike buck. Years after I used to only be able to kill spikes :unsure: and the guys would ask me how big are the spikes this year. :lol: I live in PA and I have killed lots of them.

On this fine site I just decided to go with my first name.
I like the way Larry$ said it. :lol:

R&G I know...cause some PA Spike King figured he'd rather use his name then the trail name given to him by his fellow PA hunters :)
thus you had to come up with Run & Gun.
you can blame Eric for stealing your name :)

I grew up on the Iron Range in NE Minnesota and most of the town worked in the iron ore mines. Beautiful area just south of the boundary waters and I miss not living there...

Well let's see! "Geoff" is what I was tagged with early on. Some of my friends tend to swap the 'e' in "Geoff" for another 'o' sometimes, so that it sounds something like a Walt Disney character. I have NO IDEA where they came up with that idea!!!!!!!!!

The TBow is the handle I used on the first BSOTH site. It's short for "Top Bow". Tom Cruise, eat your heart out! ;) :D

Well for me hunting is more than a sport or hobby. To me hunting is a spirtual thing. Therefore I believe one needs to hunt from his inner being or his spirt. Might sound kinda corny to some people but thats just how I feel about the hunt. Hence.....Huntfromthesoul
I choose to live simple so those who can't can simply live
