Avid bowhunter form IA as my name suggests. Have been soaking up knowledge off this site after being referred here by Elknut. Anyhow I work in health care and am a part time fireman. Fill the rest of my time with my wife and 3 kids. My wife is also loves to hunt and my oldest son is following closely in our tracks. Watching him fill tags has been the most amazing thing I have experienced in the woods. I haven't hunted the west in 10 plus years and am feeling the need to get back into it. My focus is going to be an archery elk hunt. The knowledge here is invaluable to a novice and I plan on leaning heavily on the fellow members here as I fill the many gaps in my equipment list(the classified section is awesome) and knowledge base. Thanks in advance guys.
