Additional Info About Springbuck1
Location: West Bountiful
Bio: I'm a dad aging out of his kids. I work in healthcare, and have a lot of family obligations, including a little girl (I say "little", she's 17 now) in a wheelchair who takes up a lot of my time and focus (and love) and who also LOVES to fish when we can get out where she can. She's 140 lbs and still in diapers, with four-point quadrapeligia, and autism to boot, and her care often forces me into late starts, short-notice excursions, and early returns, but not always.

Ice-fishing and spring fishing for panfish are my favorite. Nothing better to me than + 10" bluegills and +11" perch when I get into them. I love crappie, bass, white bass, catfish, etc. through the ice or in the springtime shallows, and the eternal pursuit of the biggest small fish. I'll fish or trout, though.

One thing you'll have to put up with from me is ideas, ideas, ideas, and questions the expression of those ideas through conversation. I'm a talker and a listener. I'm always inventing, making, and trying things, and asking "why" is a big part of my life. I care about people.

I'm a traditional and primitive bowhunter, too. I make bows out of trees and hike around pretending I'm going to shoot deer and elk with them, and a couple times, I have. Anybody out there who wants to learn, or make their own bow, I'd be happy to spend a few Saturdays of shop time teaching what I know. I make a lot of my own gear, both fishing and whatever else.

I'd LOVE to do a lot more things, but I don't get out enough to fail repeatedly until I learn, and end up doing familiar things at familiar times throughout the year. I'll GLADLY share anything I know, take you anywhere, etc.. but I'm afraid that much of what I know, anybody else will already know, too.

A few things on my bucket list are shooting some geese (somehow never have), taking a bull elk with my bow (bigger than a spike), getting good at walleyes, and figuring out what I'm doing wrong at Flaming Gorge for both pups and burbot (come up completely dry 10 times).

Share or ask whatever! I appreciate all I have learned on this site in the last 18 years or so!
