It took me a while to figure it out. I had to use the little tree picture next to the big A to insert images. Turns out the the old bracket system is gone. Instead of [img] it's now with the carrots <img>. But you can still just copy the photobucket URL into the line when it pops up after clicking the little tree picture.
Exbiologist is correct, the insertion of photos is different now. One suggestion I would make is to enter a width for your image, then the system will automatically resize your photo proportionately and it won't "spill" over the edges. I would recommend a width of 500 wide, but you can play with it and see what looks good.
You can also upload to our servers as attachments. Your photos will display as thumbnails, but the new photo lightbox is really cool. Click on any thumbnail now and if it's a very large image, you can even zoom in. The zoom tool is right above the X that closes the lightbox window. I've uploaded a photo so you can see an example.
The help file linked under Contribute in your link box has some helpful tips on how to insert photos directly into a post. Submitting stories, tips and to the forum are all similar now. http://www.biggamehunt.net/help.html
We were back at again today, but I brought along my little navigator buddy because we weren't gonna be in any designated wilderness. Saw 7 more goats, including one lone billy up on the Continental Divide. Ex girlfriend took the photos and is apparently a lot better with the camera than I am.
There can be too much of a good thing with antler rattling.
I like to hit the horns together for a good 30- to 40-second rattling sequence and then hang them up and resist the urge to hit them again.
This works to the hunter's advantage, because if a buck has heard it, he may have been 300 or 400 yards away and he comes in and he's not exactly sure where it came from.
When finally is time to rattle again throw a slight change-up into the routine.
The second time, don't rattle as loud...
