Hello from the dryside of WA, near Yakima. Finally I found a forum that's of folks nearby; albeit, mostly oregon thumbup: awesome coastline) from what I've seen so far. As you can guess, yup I was a Tanker in the 1st Gulfwar... I finally decided to hunt deer/elk this year and non too soon as the years are flying by. I'm going in to get a new BLR in 358Win to accompany my new Marlin '06 and others; damn ammo is high. Anyway, glad to be on board. Any of you lurk around GIM forum?
