    Hello from SW PA!

    Hi everyone!

    My name is Jake and I am 24 years old, from Greensburg, PA. I'm currently in my second year of pharmacy school and first year of MBA school at WVU, and earned my undergraduate degree from Allegheny College in Meadville, PA. My three greatest passions are hunting, fishing, and of course, the Pittsburgh Steelers!

    Growing up in southwestern PA, my hunting has been mostly limited to whitetails, turkeys, and small game. I was also invited to hunt wild boars in Georgia on several occasions, which is an absolute blast if you've never tried it. Regrettably, I won't be able to make it out west for a fall hunt anytime soon because I have an additional two years of classes before I graduate. Nevertheless, I started applying for points in several states starting last spring so that I will have opportunities to hunt as soon as I graduate! My true passion is archery, but the rifle comes in handy when I need to fill the freezer or strike-out with the bow.

    I have never been out west myself, but have thoroughly enjoyed reading, watching, and seeing pictures of the experiences other hunters have had, and am looking forward to my first western adventure in May for spring bears in Idaho! I have no experience hunting in the west, but would be glad to answer any questions to the best of my ability, including anything about hunting in the eastern states. Please don't hesitate to ask, because the Lord knows I could use a break from my studies every once in a while!

    -Jake T.

    Jake let me be the first to welcome you. I grew up near Freeport PA right on the Westmoreland/Armstrong county border. Now live in Colorado. This is a great site with a ton of great people. All the best.

    No way, small world! The Freeport stretch on the Allegheny is actually my favorite fishing spot! We keep our boat at my uncle's property in Slickville, PA, so I head over there as much as I can throughout the spring and summer. And it certainly seems so, with a lot of likeminded people!

    I grew up in Rostraver Township (Belle Vernon) and my mom worked at the Greensburgh hospital. I left PA for CO in '94 after getting tired of driving in & out of Pittsburgh, working at UPMC Presby.

    I can understand why, that traffic sucks!
