Hello All, Originally from Northern Maine. Family had potato farm in Aroostook County Which pettered out and most of us moved down to Boston. (I hated the city) My father taught me to shoot with an old Red Ryder BB gun and the on to a 22 cal bolt rifle. Went into the Army for a bit. Served 1 1/2 tours in South East Asia 1968/69. Came home, and got a job as an industrial mechanic. Traveled all over the world installing and repairing production equipment until the Rheumatoid Arthritis forced me into retirement.
In celebration of my retirement I bought a Marlin 336CS in 30/30 with a Bsa Catseye 3-10 X44IR Scope. Going to get in some hunting, Hogs maybe deer while I am still able.
Looking forward to reading on the Forum for info on the 336 and also hunting, and of course putting my 2 cents in when I can be of help or crack a joke.

Best Regards, Roy

Welcome Roy from north Florida! Palm Beach County is real close to hog heaven, there are numerous places to hunt the wild porker in that area. Anywhere around the "Big O" (Lake Okeechobee) is a good place to start looking. Have fun on Marlin Owners.
