Pretty excited to find this forum.

I'm from Valentine, Nebraska. I absolutely love shooting varmints and predators in the sandhills. I'm a small caliber junkie, I've got a few rifles, my CZ's being my favorite. I use them to shoot thousands of prairie dogs a year. My son and daughters go with me, but I love taking my friends from Eastern Nebraska.

Coyote hunting is my favorite. We have beautiful dogs up here and calling one in never gets old.

In my spare time I'm a high school principal. I love kids especially high schoolers.

My wife shoots a little but wont ever kill anything. My oldest girl has shot prairie dogs with me but my youngest has yet to go out and kill anything. She loves shooting though. My son is a go getter. Hes shot 3 deer, a coyote and six turkeys. His mother got mad at him for shooting a rob in the yard when he was 4 with his Bear Brave Bow! Lol!

I hope to learn from all of you and pass on the shooting sports to my family. Hopefully I'll network with some of you and be able to go and and do what we enjoy together.

Just went out today. Do pictures and videos only go in the picture forum? Or what's the proper etiquette?

Thanks guys.

If it was me, I would choose the forum that most appropriately fits the critter I destroyed.

 

For example if I shot a Fox or Coyote I would post my story/pictures/video in the Predator Hunting and Calling Forum. I currently own this space :-) No challengers, non, nada, zero.

If I had a great day laying the hammer down on squirrel type varmint I would post my story/pictures/video in the Varmint and Small Game portion of the forum.

 and so on... ^_^

Welcome .. You need to drive down to the Stapleton, Arnold area when they are harvesting corn and set up on the Coyotes when there is less than 5 acres left in the field! Just make sure the farmer knows that you won't shoot him
