For over twenty five years hunting, black powder shooting and the activities associated with it have been an important part of my life. Hunting is my primary black powder shooting interest, and most of my activities revolve around that, but historical reenacting, trekking and the study of life in this country in mid-eighteenth century get a fair share of my attention (aside from work, kids and graduate school). The Longhunter character is referred to throughout the site and that historical persona is the basis for Trekking. Read more about him in the history section. This page is simply my collections about these interests, my experiences and thoughts about many aspects of the pursuit.
