Far Southern Illinois

Postby Gimp Hunter » February 22nd, 2011, 11:51 am

Hi, I am new here and live in far southern Illinois. I am 70 years old and disabled. I hunt and fish from my electric wheelchair. I started turkey hunting in 1994 and have so far killed 9 turkeys. I hunt on my own and really enjoy getting out there hunting and will continue hunting as long as possible. I also do a lot of photography work in the outdoors. Here is a sample of my work. This was taken day before yesterday. I hope you all have a great year. Good luck and God Bless. Norm
