Hello all. Name is Ryan. I'm new to the hobby and perusing the forums for the equipment recommendations. I recently purchased some property in Ga. and using the property markers as a good excuse to get into the hobby. I expect my kids, ages 9 to 12, will find interest in the tech and hunt as well.

Thanks Rattlehead,

My wife and I considered buying a place, i think 12 acres next to small air port, in Rome but the market was moving faster than our decision process. We settled on a place in Oxford, opposite side of Atl.

Welcome Ryan from another Ryan in Ohio. I try to get my 6 year old to help out. She will usually dog the first few holes and get bored and want to play.
