    Even more interesting to me is I have been participating here since Janruary16 2009 and I can still remember my password. My kids gave me this gadget for Christmas and I steadfastly ignored it, at the time I still had two secretaries to bully if I needed anything off a computer. My daughter made me find a subject I was interested in and start blogging. Hunting was the choice and you folks have been stuck with me ever since.

        I'm 27. But as a lurking admin, pretty sure I don't count.

          Interesting isn’t it Tree? As I recall, my interest in hunting had waned somewhat, just somewhat. I had retired and had a guilty conscience about not dutifully going daily to the office. Do not get me wrong, still have plenty to do, just no obligation to dutifully head for the office and still amazed that everything goes along without me just fine, thank you very much. I am not a really active participent like yourself, but do occasionally contribute my, “ two cents worth “.

            Not true. More businesses should have employees like yourself. Bonnier is lucky to have you

              Hey, Lurking Natalie, how come the answer I wrote for this question never posted?

                Don't sell yourself short, but once again, I feel old.

                    I'm a 1950 edition, hatched under the Harry S. Truman administration.
                    Granulated high schoo' in '69.
                    I started on F&S as "Bubba" in '05 or '06.
                    Lost contact for a while in '07 after the loss of my grandson.
                    Came back to find "Bubba" was someone else and had to "log in".
                    The "FirstBubba" was just to separate me and the other "Bubba".
                    Oddly, he didn't stay too long.
                    GERG, WAMtnhunter (WAM), rock rat, beekeeper, Hoski, sarge01, machinegunner, Sayfu, santa, Moishe are some names that come to mind.
                    Anybody remember "David Nichols"? ...blackdawgz?

                        Yeah, if I was twenty years younger I'd be chasing after that pretty gal. Well ... okay ... maybe forty years younger. Sigh! Now where did I put that hemorrhoids donut and bottle of Geritol? I forget ... What planet is this?

                        Don't worry, Natalie. I can't find my keys either.

                          Ages listed so far: 15, 18, 21, 21, 31, 57, 58 = average of 31 years, 7 months. But actual average is much higher.

                          I'm guessing Matt is in his 30's... 99Explorer, 6Point, Bubba, Gary, Jimbo, and OHH are in their 60's... Treestand and Richard in their 70's. I believe Happy Myles is 80+ (My apologies for those I've left out)... so average age is probably early 50's.

                          JCARLIN, I always appreciate your posts. Don't be discouraged. Sometimes old men just get grouchy
                          LoL,sometimes I still think I,m 30, other times I wish I was 16 ?

                            I think Natalie and I or the only ones who are using our real birth names as a username on this thread.
                            I rather not give an age or birthday because it makes it easy for the Russian Hackers. ?
                            Let's play it safe and say an age window between 55 and 65. ?

                              I remember focusfront, who answered the question of whether it was necessary to use premium ammo for home defense.
                              His answer was that if you shoot so many people that you can't afford to pay $40 a box for premium ammo, maybe you should move to a new neighborhood. That broke me up.

                                As much as I'd like to feel younger, the very thought of reliving all those terrifying, life altering, earth shattering events again just send cold shivers up my spine!
                                Sure, there were some good times, but good golly gosh!
