    Hello, all.
    I am a lifelong native of the Texas Panhandle. I live on the west side of the region, but my hunting usually happens on the eastern side. Hogs are a relatively new thing up here versus the rest of the state, but they are now a major nuisance.
    I have hunted most of my life and also am an avid firearms enthusiast. I recently bought my first thermal sight, a Armasight/Flir Zeus w/75mm lens and 60hz core. I am still learning to use it properly but I have been on an outing with it since I got it. I have a LOT of learning to do. I currently have it mounted on a DPMS AR-10.
    My main goal is vermin reduction on the family ranch and to have a lot of fun along the way. I look forward to learning from you folks.
    Thanks,
    Greg

    Welcome from Northeast Texas. Lots of knowledgeable people here that should be able to,give you some good pointers. As for me, I don’t know beans from fat meat so don’t pay attention to what I say.

    Welcome to the fray from the PNW. I just hang out here to pig hunt vicariously through these guys. And, I'm just living proof that not everyone from here is a socialist nut job without a clue as to which bathroom to use while eating soap packets. And, I'm only HALF crazy, I just refuse to 'fess up WHICH half.

    Thank you folks for the kind welcome. I'm gearing up to go back out to the ranch and try for a porker or two.

    I've heard and seen the instructions to add an avatar picture, but I do not get the option on my drop down menu. What gives?

    Point to your username at the upper right corner of this page and the drop down menu should appear, and in the left column should be the selection for "avatar".

    You know RD, mine doesn't even give me that option. Does that mean I can't change mine if I wanted to?
