Default Hi From a NEWBIE (video)

My first post on the forums. I am sure I will learn from the discussions and hopefully I can make a contribution.
At 75 years of age my handle Fossil, sure fits. From Pennsylvania I have hunted just about everything PA. has to offer.

My real passion of 65 years is hunting the Groundhog, A 9 month open season in great weather, with the possibility of some long shootin'--It doesn't get any better.

This year I started making field videos of my Chuck hunting. I had no idea how to pull this off ; Producer, Director, Cameraman and Actor. Starting with a 5x zoom camera (dismal failure), I graduated to a 35X optical zoom. My rating was so low, I had to reach up to touch the bottom. Now I am an Apprentice Novice.

Today I whipped together an intro video (laughing is permitted) to give a flavor to the sport I love. Huntin' the Ground Grizzly. I will post some action shooting (more like action missing) in the near future. Again, Hi from a NEWBIE.

Hello Fossil!

Good first video and post! Down here in Texas, we don't know much about ground hogs. I appreciate the education.

Cheers,

Hey Boca: I can almost walk to the Chocolate Capitol of the U.S.--It's called Hershey PA (Lancaster/Lebanon County area) My waistline is a giveaway.

For the members you don't know the groundhog, I am splicing a shorty together to post. A few hits and of course a couple of misses.
