I'm in! I just stumbled across this looking for a tripod! I live in Ohio, family, job and three recent surgeries. I have lost 20 lbs in the last two months and looking to loose another 30 before I head to Wyoming (Archery Antelope) and Idaho this Fall for my first "DIY" archery Elk hunt. I have eliminated sugar, dairy, wheat from my diet and have limited meat to occasional fish, turkey, lean beef etc. I am just starting to hike and hitting the gym to do the recumbent bike (non weight bearing exercise) to mix it up and not "wear out" my parts before my trips!! Feel free to stay in touch and motivate! I am relatively new to Western hunting and look forward to learning all I can.
