Just wanted to welcome you to PHJ. I think you'll enjoy all the features this site has to offer. I encourage you to start your journal. It's a great way to keep your hunts logged for future references. Also to share your adventures with fellow hunters. You can keep whatever info you want private, like maps or gps coordinates.
If you get a chance check out my journal, I've kept a written journal of previous years hunts, and I've been logging them in here at PHJ.
