The forum has not been up for long. We started in late Feb <-> early March, but did not get an announcement out until mid-March. So really it has only been going for a few weeks.
That being said there are a few people already who do visit on a regular basis. I sure in time more people will join that are as avid as you are, but for the time being this is without a doubt a forum in start up mode.
Thank you for the compliment about BGH. We have invested in good hardware and software to deliver the forums and have every intention of offering a clean, fast, reliable way for hunters around the world to communicate.
ontarget, I second the motion! Really, this site is targeted as a service for big game hunters to discuss and ask questions.
So if you have an issue you want to bring up, do so. Also we post quite a bit of news and features from around the world, but mostly North America. Feel free to discuss these articles and news we post, that is why we start a forum for each new item.
My name is Alyssa. I started looking through the hunters education manual
last week because i am taking my hunter's safety course on saturday and
sunday. I need help with some of the questions and so far no one wanted to
help me. I would really apreciate it, Hunting is my favorite sport in the
whole world. or hobbie, whatever it is, I love it! The questions are listed
below, (But i need the anwsers by today, so please hury)
1. Name three ways that wildlife is important to us.
I thought, trees, because they produce oxgen. Water because we need water to
drink and without it we would die. Vegation, for animals to feed on so the
animal can grow healthy, so when we kill it, we don't get sick. that ok to
put only in different words?
(The webster's dictionary defines wildlife as non- human living things and
especially wild animals living in their natural environment) IS
this one i don't get what they are asking
2.name two tissues involing the hunter on which the public needs accurate
information to understand wildlife managment?
When placing a trail camera don't just look for a well used trail. What you want to do is look for a freshly used trail off by itself that goes from a north facing ridge, thick forest, brushy knob or some other similar bedding area to a food source. Don't forget water sources. Especially in the summer months the deer need water so look for a good trail going down too a creek surrounded by thick cover and place the camera 100 yards up from the water source.
Scent control is very important...
