Name is Al and I'm in North Carolina U.S.A. Hope you don't mind a Yank in your group?
We hunt dear, bear and hogs (feral pigs) most of which we have in excess. My land backs on the national forest so there is always new game coming in.
I often see deer and bear right in my back yard usually dining on my blueberries. My favorite tools of the trade include a collection of old Brno's 6.5x57, 7x57, 9.5x57 some Steyr SL222's and a much loved Sauer 202 in 270 win. ( Would love to have a 6.5x55 barrel for it). I'm always envious of all the Brno's I see on Gun Star for sale as they are plenty scarce here.
I'm semi retired, but too poor to stop working so I do metal work and some gunsmith work.
Anyway thanks for letting me contribute.
