adds by Google banner question

Just wondering who sponsors these adds at the top of the page. The one hog hunting outfit is very sketchy and I know from experience that no one reading this forum would be very happy if they went and hunted there. I feel they give this forum a bad name if someone accessed them through us.

What they show on thier website only borders on reality.

google

If the ad is via Google then the outfitter has signed up with Google not BGH. It's impossible for us to monitor all ads or screen the advertisers with Google.

That's kinda what I thought

That's kinda what I thought but figured I should ask. Usually I would not have mentioned something like this but it was not just a bad experience.

My advice to everyone is get as many references as possible and do internet searches for reputation whenever using the services of somebody new.

We have these kinds of ads on

We have these kinds of ads on another site that I frequent. 

If this site is set up anything like that one, then I believe you will actually see ads based on what you search most often.

So, if you have been searching for hog hunting, you may get hog hunting ads.  If you search for Pacific ocean fishing, then you'll get ads for pacific ocean fishing.

If you search for photos of a scantily clad Hillary Clinton, then you'll get.... well, you know..... Whistling

lol
