Hi, Retired 2 years ago and got into sniping bad birds at local farms. Hunted big game for 50 years in b.c. alberta Yukon. I got into pcp,s and cant stop. I go out 2 or 3 times a week. and haven't touched a powder burner since. Good shooting here in London area. Love the 25 caliber. Also do ham radio, guitar motorbike and photography. Keeps me off the couch!

Thanks guy,s should be fun. Lots of birds from up north should be arriving here soon...cant wait. Yup grackles crow,s pigeons keep me pretty busy. I,m actually enjoying Ontario. All my relatives and people I grew up with are here. Fishing and small game hunting is really good. I do miss the big game though and the mountains.

I was born in London, raised in Dorchester and left/escaped just a month before my 21st. birthday. Regina for 6 months,
then BC. I've been back to Ontario a bunch of times to visit & bury relatives, but always nice to get back home, to B.C.
