    Hello from The Deep South ( USA )

    I have been coming here several times a week for years, as the search engines always bring me here for some discussion of an arcane caliber or weapon, so I decided it was time to join and ask questions.

    I am from South Carolina, my ancestors having colonized America as early as 1621. I grew up on a working horse and cattle farm, where we had a few deer, but too much livestock to hunt with a rifle. So i learned to stalk on the ground then with a longbow.

    In other parts of the state, deer were more plentiful then, but smaller, the woods very thick and flat, much of it swamps, so we hunted from stands, as deer were driven by dogs with one man. We used shotguns with buckshot.

    I much prefer stalking, and still hunting with a rifle or handgun, and have hunted many parts of the USA, all sorts of terrain and weather.

    The rolling hills off England and Scotland are my ideal terrain, so I hope to hunt there soon.

    Hi there from Wales, we have more rolling hills and rain than England but maybe not as much as Scotland!

    Couldnt help noticing that you left Wales out in your intro.
    There have been at least 8 US presidents of Welsh decent and a confederate president, Jefferson Davis including confederate genarals......... Just saying like.

    Anyway Croeso O Gymru fach.

    Actually, one of my most ancient Colonial ancestors came from Wales to Virginia, in 1621.
    Others from Loch Fyne, Scotland. The rest from Bavaria, Switzerland, and Saxony.

    New Mexico is quite different from the Carolinas, which have ocean, farms, forests, and rugged mountains. Visit in the summer to see if you can take the heat.

    My Grandmother (Mamgu water street) used to tell me as a kid about her great uncle a Samuel Evans who took his family accross the pond in the 1880's to Ohio I think she said. I will have to look into it I guess.

    I have always wanted to visit the sothern states but not managed it yet work and family have come first.
