I am new to this forum but not new to the area. I am a retired fire chief and conduct trainings for the Pacific NW, most often in WA. I live in IL and we do have excellent deer and waterfowl hunting. I own a commercial waterfowl club that has been in business for twelve years. I teach specialized fire fighting classes worldwide and recently returned from Beijing China where I conducted hands on training for combating high rise fires. I love Ruger No. 1 riles, red pad Model 77's, and Sakos. Other than that I spend what is left of spare time with my five grandchildren and teaching hunter safety courses.
