Location: Burlington, Iowa

Perhaps I need to explain where the Nickname came from. In 1983, I got one of the five North Dakota elk tags given out that year. I shot the second legal elk in modern North Dakota history. My daughter named him "Elmer" and he hangs proudly in my living room (Pictured in my workshop pictures).
I taught Industrial Arts for five years and then worked for Prison Industries in North Dakota (12 years), California (5 years), and Iowa (13 years). When I was in North Dakota, I had a custom cabinet business for 9 years besides working for the prison.
I retired in 2007 and have a small shop in my 14 X 21 garage. We also sell antiques and collectables (mostly Paper) on Ebay. Check out our sight, "stockbridgestuff".
I am married and have a daughter in California and a step-daughter and step-son in this area.
I am an avid bow hunter and shot some dandy Pope and Young bucks since moving to Iowa.

Welcome to Lumber Jocks. I got off a train once in Burlington and hitchhiked to Salem to pick up my car. That was in the ‘60’s and I was rodeoing all over your country. Also once, on a family vacation we camped in the city park and got sprayed for mosquitos. I DO remember Burlington. LOL Have fun here it is a great place.

Hi Gene & Gregory

Thanks for the welcome! People seem to forget how many blessings they have. There was one time in my life when I lost a lot of money and material things. It brought me closer to God, my family and had my health. I am the richest man in the world! Those Grand-kids are priceless! Have a great Day!

Thanks for the explaination on the gunrack ND2ELK. I am not sure which of us is newer, but welcome. I also worked in the prison system. I worked at the Navy Consolidated Brig in Charleston SC. in industrial maintenance, and custody and control jobs.

Where in North Dakota? I ranched in western South Dakota for 23 years. I sure miss the hunting. I never had the chance to go Elk hunting, but I did get a .270 with that in mind. I put in for New Mexico this year, but didn’t draw.
