Hi BK.....welcome to our little piece o' the internet!!!!
The CT forum needs you and your input.......we have a few hardy members that keep active on-line with us, especially during the season.
I live in Maine now, but grew up in Wethersfield and was a guide for about a decade in CT.....and still get down there a few times every season either for Canadas or sometimes on the CT River for ducks. Never really hunted in the Redding area, but we have a couple other fellows here that know that area pretty well. My exposure in the SW of CT was limited to the shore, but I always get back to Wheeler for the extended goose season come Feb.
Again, welcome.......and keep up with the rest of the NE, especially the Maine forum!
