Hi All,...
I am a long time hunter/shooter, now in my mid 40's, Happily Married with a Ten year old Son, and 4 year old Daughter.
I was raised in the Eastern Cape of South Africa, with the Drakensburg Mountain Range at my back, and the Indian Ocean dead ahead,...
We decided to Imigrate to Canada 8 years ago, and have never looked back,... Canada/Alberta/Fort McMurray is our home now, and damn proud of it,...!
Recently I have often found myself reminiscing about my childhood, and running around the African Felt with knapsack on my back, and my "Springer" in hand. I have so many fond memories, and the common denominator is always Hunting with my Springer, never video games nor tv etc,...
So, I recently purchased a pair of Springers for my Son and I,...
Well, we have been having a blast Plinking and such, and now my Son prefers going shooting over video games hands down,...
Now it's time for some newer equipment, and for him to get introduced to hunting.
Hence, I joined this Forum, for knowledge & Info,...
There it is, and here I am!

Welcome! Great to hear you're getting your son into a great sport. Seems there aren't enough reasons for kids these days to get outside.

Lots of knowledge here on the forum. The search feature is an invaluable tool.

Welcome aboard, Jonathon, and thanks for the great intro. Lots of members here in Alberta, although most of them are a bit further south. Don't hesitate to chime in with either question or comment, and if you need a contact here in Alberta, be sure to PM me and I'll help with what I can.

Enjoy the forum; It's a haven of skill, experience, wisdom and camaraderie.
