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.
Great to have you join us here at PHJ. Just let me know if you have any questions about how to use the site, or even ideas for how to make it work better for you. We want to make this site great tool and community for guys like you and I, so just let us know if there's anything we can do to help out. Good luck in the field and shoot straight!
