New to GON Forums - from Atlanta

Thread starter #1
Hey everyone, I'm Patrick and I'm new here to the forum - but native to GA. I already know this place is a great source of knowledge and common interests.

My life is centered in Atlanta, but these days I spend a ton of time up in NE GA (Hartwell and Toccoa) - usually chasing something in the water or woods. I may already know a couple of you.

I'm 51 now, and have a long history with fishing here in GA, but I am a self taught hunter having taken up hunting in my later adult life. I'm no expert at anything outdoors, but I am learning every day and taking it all in. I'm looking forward to getting into this GON forum as a regular user.

Also, I am a GT grad, but don't hold that against me. I know I am likely outnumbered here with UGA fans. Actually, I'm not a sports fan in any way, just happen to have spent a lot of time and money there in my 20s.

I've been in ATL since my GT days, but I grew up in Conyers, in case any of you are from my hometown and same level of oldness.

Ha, thanks. Not ready (have my own firm here in Atl). My mother is from there, with her extended family still there and lots of history. Some of my hunting property is the old farm homestead that she still owns, just out of the city boundary.

Where do I send the check?
Just write it out, the amount is unimportant, then affix it to the lower left corner of the new UGA flag you will hang on your porch on the next game day.

Iā€™m working on that first bear. Not quite in the Clayton area I guess.
Trying to be in the big hills on Sunday.
Had a close one a few weeks ago, but no luck yet.
