    Canadian Armed Forces Veteran having served for 10 years. 25 years young (really 37 yrs.) New to the hunting scene, planning to go grouse hunting this fall, hopefully white tail deer next year. Gone Camping almost every year.
    Gone backcountry camping (dying to go this year). A passion of mine is to read BWMNS magazine and A F man's magazine, and I enjoy all things Military. Own two Military surplus rifles. Hopefully will own a Military Vehicle in the near future.
    When I am not working, I am just aching to get outside in the woods, or to the range.

    Funny how so many of us outta military end up going to the woods for what ever reason, and finding something we need to feel more at peace with ourselves and the world.

    Nope, I had to get out for medical reasons in 2008, destroyed my knee during basic training in 1998, By 2008 my knee said F**k this, I'm done! I limp at times and with cold weather my knee screams with pain. have very little cartiliage left and have Osteoarthritis in both knees and lower back

    It felt very strange to 'Like' a post that describes that much discomfort, especially when it's close to home (Right knee bad, left catching up). It will be good to see you getting out though! I look forward to your posts!
