Thanks for having he here.

Bottom line up front - I'm a recent import from Great Britain, so I'm expecting at times to misunderstand things, and perhaps to be misunderstood - please be patient with me!

I've been shooting on and off since the age of 13 (20+ years), and hunting in one form or another since 2011.

I moved to the U.S.A. in 2016, and my wife and I bought our house on the edge of the beautiful Delaware State Forest in the Poconos earlier this year.

I have succsesfully hunted three species of deer - but none in terrain like that of NE PA - so I need to learn how to find and get close to whitetail if I'm going to fill my freezer this winter.

Thanks Dick. So far my experiences have been overwhelmingly positive, with the exception of not having spent enough time last season hunting....

Thanks ShurShot - sad to see you are stuck in NJ - I tried to understand their hunting laws (I live really close to the NJ/PA border) but no rifles for deer hunting? My poor British brain can't cope with that.

Welcome aboard!


I'm thinking that you live kinda close to me?

I'm just outside of Milford.

Yes, we must be pretty close. I am right on 402 very close to Resica Falls. Which side of Milford are you?
