    My old man's backhand used to land,
    Hard on the side of my head.
    I just learned to stay out of his way.
    There's been streetfights, blue lights,
    Long nights with the world sittin' on my chest:
    It just showed me how much I could take.
    Hard times, bad luck.
    Sometimes, life sucks.
    That's all right, I'm ok.
    It ain't nothin' but another day.

    I work at a Chemical plant in South Mississippi, swing shifts. I love the swing shifts. I am off during the week and don't have many people in the woods while I am hunting Monday - Friday, just my hunting partners. It is nice to have a entire WMA to your self. I also don't have many of the members in our hunting club on our lease during the week. The deer are not destriberd and they travle more often that during the weekend when everyone is hunting.

    My wife works, I am a stay at home dad. I get parolled this year as my last home bound child goes off to Kindergarden. I started shooting my bow w/ my other kids in june. Hopefully this year I ll get to hunt a lot. Well see how the year progresses. I have a 10-60 yard target in the back yard for archery, and a spot to hang a stand to practice out of, and in one of my lower fields I have a 100 yard shooting range w/ a bench, hopefully be able to extend it out to 250 this fall.

    I proudly pledge allegience to one nation under God.

    I work in Veterinary Medicine research in the parasitology division. Also Roof and siding and thinking of getting into a pet crematorium business. The side jobs pay for the hunting/fishing that I do. Have alot of time for Pheasant, dove and coyote hunting( can do them out the back door) Deer I generally drive a couple hours so only weekends when season arrives. Although Child #2 [:D]is on the way so that may make it every other weekend.

    bang250, thinking of getting into a pet crematorium business??? serious? Is there an actual need for that? I've never heard of anything like that.

    I'm 29 years old, engaged (for to long if you ask her[:D]), and a really cool guy. [8D][:D][;)] I hunt normally just on weekends, sometimes if I'm feeling froggy I hunt in the morning before work. I use about 2 weeks of vacation bow hunting at different times.

    I work in a variety of areas. We build industrial scales for the weights and measurements industry, so that gets me involved with manufacturing, electronics, and purchasing inventory. Another department builds air ride suspensions for light trailers, so that keeps me involved with manufacturing also, sales, and just about anything else that comes up. The suspensions mainly go on horse trailers, but also race car trailers, stock trailers, utility trailers. Mark Martin even has them on two of his kids trailers (his kid races go carts), orange county choppers has our air ride on their Renegade Trailer to.

    I am an insurance salesman. I used to sell cars, but I wasn't sleazy enough. I talked to a career counselor that informed me that even though I was not sleazy enough to sell cars, I had just enough sleaze to sell insurance. Insurance is working out fairly well for me, but I am going to be getting a broker's license this year so that I can also manage investments. It's amazing that the sleaze requirements aren't that high for investment brokers. Anyone want a hot tip? I can get Enron stock dirt cheap.

    I study biology so hunting and studies work well together, only problem is that there are a lot of vegans , fruitans and other basketcases that thinks hunting is worse than gasing jews, so I have some clashes with other students. In the winter we'll have a course in tracking and I'm really looking forward having that.

    I just turned 22 today and am a bookkeeper/asst. accountant for a small management company. Because of my office hours and 1.5 hour commute most of my hunting is saved for the weekends. I wish I had the schedules of some of you folks though. Man that has got to be sweet.

    I also attend community college when I can.

    Susp. I know it sounds crazy but 90-95% of animals that die or are put down at the Vet. clinics are cremated. Big business!!! Several of the clinics in this area (Champ/Urbana central Ill.) send there animals clear to Chicago. I just need to get word out that the services are here.

    unreal..I never knew that. some friends of mine father is a vet, he injects something into animals he puts down then he used to bury them on their property with a bull dozer, not sure if that is still the technique or not.

    I am a forum consultant,I visit hunting forums, My job is to pretend to be interested in hunting and evaluate the folks who visit these forums. During my analisis of this forum I have come to the conclusion. your all a bunch of nut- bags who drink too much beer kill too many bees, sell drugs to deer and on top of all that you allow a woman to run over your hunting equipment with the family vechicle.

    who you referring to Willis? A number of those things were directed straight at me. I might get mad and leave the forum, I recall some upstanding memebers ([^]) who left when they got mad or upset over something. Then again I might stick around and bother you all....[^][:D]

    beer? Huh? Ben I think you scared Buckey off or else he left for another vacation. [;)]

    s.gun do you drag your deer out with that to? [;)] That wouldn't happen to be a plant by the name of MIE would it?

    Crow, Coyote, and ground hog are all fair game around here right now. Sept 1st brings in squirrel, dove, and I believe fox to. Plus there's endless fishing everynight after work. Buckey maybe you better move to keep your patience in tact.[:)]

    I'm a contractor working in the Middle-East, (Kuwait), get virtually no time to shoot and I'm only in the states about 30 days out of the year! :( BUT, hopefully when this is all over I'll have about 600 acres in South or West Texas and will be able to shoot all I want! :)

    I'm a grumpy, cynical, old burnt out career archery professional - and by the personal bios above, far too ancient to fit in with a pack you young, fresh faced guys the likes of you'all. Anybody here eligible to order off the senior menu at Dennys?

    However, I have had a lot of fun over the last 40 years or so and am far from totally worn out. Last week of Sept. I'll be headed off to the NWT for another Caribou junket which should remove the grumpy, cynical burnt out componets. By the end of the Season I might even be human again.

    No - I'm not selling anything - why would I want to ruin my fun.
