Hey group! My name is brandan. I am 28 years old. I am married to my beautiful wife of 8 years. Originally born in Idaho but have strong Midwest roots as my family is all originally from Oklahoma (I lived in texas before moving to oregon for the 2nd time). With that being said I grew up as what you would expect...proud republican American. My family are avid firearm collectors. I spent most of my childhood around firearms and summers camping, hunting and fishing. Initially I focused my time in my education. I am a critical care and trauma nurse. I am currently pursuing my doctorate degree. The past couple years I have reconnected with my passion for the outdoors. I am hoping to find other like minded guys that are in the area that may be interested in a fishing trip or hunting later this year. Glad to have found this site!
