Hey everyone. Just thought I'd say hello and apologize if I don't know what I'm talking about here, haha. I'm new to hunting (sort of), so I've been researching all I can and trying to find resources to ask questions and this looks the best so far.
I'm 19 years old, and I live in Kentucky, with my mother and my father, who has been an avid hunter and trapper his whole life. I was always a computer-geek, so never took up his passions until now. It's Muzzleloader Season for two days and thought I'd give it a shot. I haven't seen anything besides squirrels yet, but hopefully I'll have better luck in a few hours. Even though I haven't seen a deer, I've fallen in love with being out in the woods, watching the wild-life, not worrying about anything and just having patience for one to come by. Disconnecting from the world in the blind and becoming part of the woods is great.
I have been hunting before with my dad, but I never took such a fondness to it as I have now.
So, I may ask questions to some of you experienced hunters here, but I'll try to search the forums for the answers before I ask anything. I'll post my experiences as you all have, hopefully I can get the hang of all this :thumbup:

As I said, I'm a computer geek. So that's about all I can offer you guys. If you have any computer trouble or questions feel free to ask me. I worked in a PC repair shop and have been customizing, repairing, building, overall using computers my whole life. I have knowledge with all Windows versions, Mac OS, Unix, and Linux. Also pretty good at networking.

But, just thought I'd say hello. Forum looks awesome, I'm glad I found this place!

Welcome to the club! I hunted the last 2 days in Kentucky with M/L myself, hoping to catch up with one of the big bucks known to haunt our Kentucky area. I went out this morning and saw 6 deer (all does I could have shot) and 2 coyotes (may have been the same one) and never tickled the trigger.

But boy, I had a good time! Glad to see you are enjoying your time in the woods as that's a lot of what hunting is all about, IMHO!!

Whereabouts in Kentucky are you located?

And welcome to DHC from the great state of Texas!!!

Learned to love the outdoors and hunting from my grandfather, but dropped out of the "sport" for nearly 30 years while having a career in the military and raising a family. Once I retired and settled down (a little), took up hunting again after moving out to rural Texas hill country.

Nothing wrong with being a computer geek AND a hunter. I work in the communications/computer industry as well. If you ever have any questions, by all means ask away. I'm sure that whatever the subject, we'll have someone able to answer it.
