Hey everyone, I have no idea if anyone will read this, but I saw in another thread that new members are supposed to post here, so this is my new member post. I am a hunter and fisher. I hunt morel mushrooms, whitetail and turkey every year. I have pronghorn hunted a couple times which is my favorite thing to hunt and would recommend to anyone! I also hunt squirrels whenever I see them running through the yard. I have been wanting to bear hunt for years now, but I haven't had the chance to go yet. I will hunt anything I have the opportunity to. I try to fish whenever I can, but in all reality I only get out a meager dozen or so times a year. I live in southeastern MN and right across the Mighty Mississippi from the famous big buck country of Buffalo, Wisconsin. I'm sure any whitetail hunter reading this knows where that is. Unfortunately, I have never got to hunt there though. Now on to the Marlin part of this whole thing. I have a model 60 with a camo stock which was my very first gun of my own excluding my bb gun. I have put 1000's of rounds of ammunition through that gun and have incurred no problems while I have used it, it is a great gun and is my squirrel slayer! I like the Marlin brand and hope to get more Marlin guns in the future.
