Sure it looks like a couple people have joined the site as standard members only to benefit from the competition but I would say that the vast majority taking part in the competition have been members for a long time, and will continue to be members for a long time. This is the best hunting site around and you can bet that I will continue using the site for a long time to come.
I also agree with you guys that this site is much more appealing than some of the other sites out there. We just do not seem to have the rude members that just like to stir up arguments that some of the others sites are plagued with. Sure, arguments arise (and rightfully so) but we handle them in a gentlemanly manner. Long live BGH!
