Hey guys! It's been a long time.
I just wanted to check in and see how you guys are doing. I kind of fell off the face of the earth for a few years, and honestly haven't gotten around to even signing in here. Mostly lurking every other month or so to see what you guys were up to.
Things have been going well for me. I started as a 12 year old kid on the BO site, hungry for hunting knowledge and a virtual family. Now I'm 5 months away from being a college grad, but just as passionate for hunting and fishing. It's funny how time doesn't take that aspect out of person.
My mom was diagnosed with stage 3 breast cancer June 2014. After intense radiation, chemo, and the power of community support and prayer, she's doing well today.
I've got a wonderful girlfriend of almost two years. Her first experiences duck and deer hunting were not quite her cup of tea, but she is always willing to join me in the boat or ice house (probably because she always seems to outfish me).
Anyway, I'll stop rambling. With the holidays coming, I just wanted to stop in and thank you all for having such a positive impact on me growing up. As far as I'm concerned, you're always welcome to join me in northern Minnesota for some walleye fishing, waterfowling, a grouse push or two, or to share a deer woods.
Have a great Christmas guys!
