Recently it was suggested by some readers that we post the backgrounds of the various gun writers (and others) here so that we could all know what each poster's qualifications were. I believe some of this was done, but on a rather informal basis. Why not do it again and have a permanent post up there alongside the articles at the head of this forum?

I am off to an appointment right now, but will log on later with a brief outline on Mule Deer.

Anyone that has read your stuff for any length of time knows your background I would think.

Yeah, but having him pony up first is a good start.

Not to mention, it would be interesting to know the backgrounds of some of these fellas.

I'm interested.

It would e a good idea to post who the "gunwriters' are vs the numerous crackpots who post here.

I'd probably be in the crackpot category...

I am in favor of the idea, for those that want to do it.

I would certainly respect the wishes of any that didn't, although it sure would make a lot of sense in terms of the Board.

I appreciate the motion John. Consider it seconded.

I'd rather let my work speak for itself.

I'd be in favor of the idea.

I would find it interesting if they would tell where they were born how they got into shooting, hunting, etc... What the writers started out doing and how they ended up where they are now.

The article by Brian Pearce in the latest RIFLE magazine about why he wears a cowboy hat was great entertainment. It really let the reader know where he started and where he is now..

I dont buy too many magazines, so this would help me identify who all the writers are. Also if a certain writer has never left the East coast and gives an opinion on Western hunting that he has pickup from several guided hunts. I can take this opinion for what its worth.

Ken, I don't think you have any explaining to do!

Mostly I want the folks who ask questions here know who they are addressing, and who is answering. They might either want to direct a specific question to a specific writer--not to limit the answers, but to get that writer's attention. Or they might be interested in evaluating answers depending on who the identity of who responds.
