Hello All, New to the forum here, but not to the Northwest. Born and raised in the Bothell area, went to high school in Edmonds, and then on to UW Seattle. Graduated a few years ago and living/working in Seattle now. I spend my weekends in the Leavenworth and Lake Wenatchee area hiking, climbing and hunting. I do some bird hunting and also tried (unsuccessfully) for deer and black bear this year for the first time. Just interested in learning more about rifle shooting for hunting purposes, maybe dabbling a little in precision shooting, and also in pistol shooting. All on a budget Glad to have found this forum and look forward to learning!
