    Hello my name is Matt and I am from the South Bend area in northern Indiana. I am 33, married, with a new born boy. I started hunting at a put and take pheasant hunt club. I had gotten the job there with help of my Mother who was hoping to "get it out of my system". I come from a fishing family but no one hunts or shoots. That is until now. I started hunting whitetails at 18. I was very fortunate to harvest a doe my second trip out. It was then I learned my biggest big game lesson of how hard hunting can be after the shot is made. 8 years after my doe harvest I had gotten my first buck and since then I have what my wife calls "deer sickness" to whitetails. I have been bow hunting for 10 years. I have hunted Michigan Nebraska and Wyoming and my state of Indiana with my bow and cant wait to go someplace new. Thanks for letting me introduce myself and am proud to be part of this bow hunting community.

    Welcome Matt! If you find yourself reading hunting articles into the late hours of the night, and going over trail cam pictures during work. You're not alone!

    Awesome! Welcome! I lived in and hunted Northern Indiana from 2007-2015. Nice to see someone from my old stomping grounds.
