Welcome from Ca. You could share a story here or create a new post, all is good. This is a great forum with normal people.
Well , I've never been accused of being too normal , LOL , but I'll try my best .
I am from Michigan originally and grew up hunting whitetail and birds . I've had a few good hunting dogs and thats all I miss about Michigan , walking in the woods with my dogs .
My best hunting story is when I was in Craig Co hunting Elk horseback . Riding through the mountains was a lifetime dream come true . And I shot a small 6x6 (See my Avatar).Not long range , maybe 220 yards , just before dark . Riding a horse in pitch darkness back to camp was just a little frightening , trusting a dumb animal not to walk off a cliff .
I've been back a few times with my crossbow , shot a cow a couple years ago and a barely legal bull this year . I'm 63 with an iffy back so I'm not sure how many more hunts I'll get to take , but I'm trying to set something up for next year .
I'm not a backpacker or have the equipment to go solo and I don't have any friends who want to go , so it hard to find a outfitter taking single hunters . Elk or Moose , not sure which it'll be , but I'm looking at Newfoundland Moose hunts and Colorado Elk , whatever I can line up first .

I'm in Lakeland, we occasionally will bring a boat over and drop it in at Sandsprit park, but mostly if I'm fishing I'm on a lake. My wife doesn't it typically go with us fishing.
I used to fish bass tournaments in Michigan and we lived on the rim canal of Okeechobee for a year before moving here , then we got into offshore fishing . I toy with the notion of selling the Cat and getting a small flats type boat , the Cat just sets on the trailer anymore , seems like the wind is blowing all the time .
I use Jensen Beach causeway to launch now , but have used Sandsprit a bunch , we go there to buy bait from the bait boats on our way out .
