I started trapping about 6 years ago. I told some old time trapper's I was going to target wolf as they are over populated in our area and bring $500 each. I was told it would most likely be a year or two before I caught one because wolfs are quite smart and hard to catch. I caught a nice wolf with my first set. Shortly after I joined the Alaska outdoor forum as Wolfkiller. I kept the name here.
I'm 6'2" 260lbs with red hair.
Pagey is the nickname of Led Zeppelin's lead guitarist, Jimmy Page. Took that as a handle the first time I ever logged on to an IRC server way back in the day. I've just kinda stuck with it ever since then. Listened to a LOT of Zep when I was younger.
I've used karri0n as lots and lots of online handles over the years. If I had made a new name for here, I probably would forget what it was.
My #1 hobby before getting involved with woodburning was chasing lake run rainbow trout
Gee used my name, guess I need something more interesting! :cheese:
I'm a plumber so I say just Plumbit up
If I lived in the Ozarks, I'd be a hillbilly. Here in the sand dunes I am a dunebilly.
Like Pagey mine is rock and roll related. Taken from the title of one of my favorite albums by an obscure band from Portland, OR (via Albuquerque, NM).
I can't get any more specific then that.
I've got a lot of Welsh and other Celtic ancestry.
"pybyr" is old Welsh for hot pepper
I like hot pepper, and I am also told that I can have a little fire in my personality- although that is something that my friends seem to think is one of my best qualities, so I hope that that indicates that it is more of an overall asset than a liability...
I am a lineman. Years ago a old timer lineman seen me working. Came up too me and said " I used to be a knotdodger."
The name stuck. And I use it for everywhere.
Lots of knots on the telepone power poles. If you hit one , your on the ground wondering what happened..hehe
And every one just thought you had a hairy chest ( keep your butt out and legs streight)
I have used CowboyAndy on several sites for a while now... obviously my name is andy and the cowboy part, well people always tell me I act like one because I am not afraid of anything...
well, except heights...
Gamalot- The first time I ever signed up for dial up internet the company used the first 2 letters of mine and my wifes first names Gary & Mary and the first 3 letters of our last name as our account ID.
We have been Gamalot ever since because it is pretty easy to remember. Most assume it means I play allot of games but we all know about ass u me.
growing up all the guys I would work with called me Punk Kid. I thought It was cool when I was like 16 and combined it to Punkid for forums. then others started using it so I just added a whole bunch of 8s cause it use to my lucky number growing up.
Now I wonder when I respond to someone if they get the impression that i'm a jerk from name..... O well
'Cause I'm a Patriots fan!! :coolsmirk:
My name is Dean and my wife is Donna. First 3 letters dea don = deadon. My boys still think it means dead on, since I have never missed a deer that I have shot at during hunting season. and I have never gone a season without a deer. They call me dead on dad because if they hear me shoot they know it is dead. I let them keep that thought. So you decide for yourself deadon or dead on. By the way this is a very interesting thread.
It's a high school nickname.

Pistonslap - I used to beat my motorcycles to death riding in the woods, the rings were always worn out and you could hear the piston slapping in the cylinder. My buddies started calling me pistonslap - at least I think that's what they meant

Mine is for my chocolate lab. Would love to put his photo on the left side of the screen. How do you do it?
I just added an avatar on mine to make sure I wouldn't give you bad directions. At top click "Your Control Panel" then click on Avatar on left, then browse for your pic, then click upload avatar.
Should make sure your pic is the type allowed and I think it said max was 110x110 or something. You can adjust the photo size in photoshop by opening the pic you want, then in "image" menu click image size, adjust, save as gif or jpeg, upload.
Thanks, chutes for the instructions to add an avatar. I just put this one on for now to try it. It's my old pre-epa add-on furnace. Once the fire is up and running, I'll bet it burns as clean as any cat stove. It gets air from the bottom, so for a while I had trouble getting a clean burn. After reading extensively on this forum, I decided to drill some holes in the loading door and make an adjustable air intake above the flames. Problem solved! Now after the initial start up, the only smoke you see is a short time after reloads. Only problem is that the firebox is so big it's like having a woodchipper in my basement.
