Hi everyone! It seems that you haven't had a finnish member, so I have to fix the situation. The main reason why I came here is that I have to practice my english, which isn't very good, but I hope You will understand.
My hunting career started like it usually do in the countryside; when I was kid I shooted rats and fieldfares with an airgun. When I was fourteen I get my first whitetail. That was about fifteen years ago and after that I have shot them quite many. Nowadays I hunt almost everything that is legal in Finland. I have 4 dogs, dachshund, German Jagdterrier, American Foxhound and Swedish Elkdog. And after a month I will get new Swedish Elkhound puppy and I will try to train it mainly for a bear. I prefer hunting with rifle, which I have 5, .222rem ,.308win, .30-06 spr., 9,3*62 Mauser and .458 WM. I also have a "kombi" 12/6,5*55 and several shotguns, pistols and 22 LR:s.
If I use wrong terms, please point them out. I don't care so much about the grammar, but it would be nice to know correct hunting related terms. Ego sum rex Romanus et supra grammaticam! My username comes from King of the Forest, and my real name means that in finnish. So I guess that King of the Forest doesn't have to care about grammar either.
If You have anything to ask about hunting in Finland or something else, please feel free to ask.
