I'm form Whittier, California originally, but now I live in Lehi, Utah. I didn't think you could hunt in the People's Republic of California, since they have all those goofy gun laws. But I'm glad someone does.
I now hunt here when I get the chance. I have my first deer license for Northern Utah, but don't know where I'll go since I'm not familiar with the area yet. I've hunted PDs here though in sage brush farm land, as well as rock chucks and jack rabbits.

Bailey Island,Maine.Except for the 2 foxes and 1 red squirrel The only varmints around here are the summer people.Although we have a large cat population my wife says "NO!"and so far I have listened to her.
I hunt deer and in past years that has been inland but this year I am going to stick to the Islands witch is shotgun or black powder only.I put together a CVA .50 kit this past winter and picked up a cheap 12ga. single.Hunting Islands is fun but more of a challange then you might think.The trees grow differant becouse of the wind,short and thick.You can't see clearly more than 15 yards in most places and the Island I hunted last year was all short steep ridges with swamp inbetween.8 of us hitched a ride on a lobster boat and the Island was only about a mile long and less than a half mile wide.We all saw deer but nobody got off a shot.I kind of like that,I never hunted with these guys before and it is nice to know they wait until they are sure of there shot.
I think I am going to try Duck hunting from a kayak this year as well.I have never duck hunted and I am new to kayaks as well but I am going to give it a try.
As far as varmint hunting I will get there some day but if someone sends me some prarie dogs I will send you some cats.There is a lifetime guarantee on the cats,if you shoot one or lose one I will send you 2 to replace it.No questions asked.

Dalton, Ottertail county, West Central, MN. Rolling hills of wheat, beans, alfalfa, and corn. Seperated by lakes, sloughs, rivers, and woods. In my free time I enjoy hunting deer, with rifle and bow, ducks and geese, ruffed grouse, and all other critters big and small. The only problem, there dosen't seem to be a lot of free time. Maybe when the kids get a little older, there wil be more free time, if I can get them interested.

Danville Pa. Its in central Pennsylvania.

My shooting consists of either thick woods or open fields. I like field hunting more so than woods hunting. It is just great to be on an open plain with a long-range varmint getter in hand.

I would like to go out west some time and go on a p-dog hunt. Sorry westerners, I know you guys think us 'tourists' are a pain tongue.gif

Well I am too from Farm Country USA. For me that would be the extreme northeastern corner of South Dakota, 5 miles from North Dakota and 8 miles from Minnesota. This area has some diversifed areas with lots of FLAT farm land, a dried up lake bottom that is 2 1/2 miles wide by 10 miles long, and then to the west we get into some hilly country. While there are a few shelterbelts around in spots, that is about the extent of the trees in the area.

Since 1982 I have been Shooting / Hunting with Single Shot Handguns, hense the name SD Handgunner. For the most part this has been with T/C Contenders, but there have also been a couple Remington XP-100's and a Savage Striker that have come and gone as well.

Though I haven't been able to for the past couple years (new job and all), I try to get out to west central South Dakota as often as I can shooting Prairie Dogs. I have learned that these Single Shot Handguns are not really a handicap in this type of shooting, and that the Handgun Scopes themselves are more a limiting factory than the guns and cartridges. I also enjoy Calling Coyotes, and who knows some day I may even get good at it.

Thanks for listening.

I'm from Northumberland, PA. I hunt the same type of woods and fields as Hildy. I hunt for mainly whitetails and some turkey. I use to do more groundhog hunting than I do now. Since, I gave up trout fishing, I'll start groundhog hunting more.

Been a member for a while and tried to post a few times but could not get beyond the log-in. Each new page stated I was not logged-in??? Anyway, Hi! My name is Bob and I live in the Kansas City Metro area north of the river. Got addicted to varmint hunting while stationed at Ft Carson, CO. Made two trips to S. Dakota this year for pasture-poodle pulverizing. Shot the throat out of my Nesika 6mmAI the first trip and finished the wear-out process on my Rem 22-250. Now have 2 barrels for the Nesika and a new one for the Rem. Also just got a Savage Mod 12FV-S in 204 Ruger that shoots bug holes at 4300 fps. Is it spring yet?
