MODS - PLEASE READ!! New Forum????

It seems there are a number of us that are having issues with finding reliable hunting partners.

I used to have 3 or 4 guys that I regulary hunted with. 1 went to Iraq and unfortuneatly lost his life there serving our country. 2 others have found jobs that have taken them out of state and the other has fallen on hard times and refuses to let me pay for him so now I find myself in the same boat often times.

Long story short I was thinking it might not be a bad idea to set up a forum dedicated to hunters that are trying to find hunting partners. I would give us an opportunity to post the details (state, species, weapon) and all of us in that boat could go to one place. It may even help us get opportunites to hunt other states when we may not have previously done that for the guys that do have partners but don't want to travel out of state to hunt.

What do you guys and gals think?

I like the idea. Maybe it could be placed in the classified section of the forum under its own heading. I'll certainly support the idea when the mods get together to discuss it.

I think it would difficult to match up partners under one general forum. Allowing people to list in their respective geographic areas would probably work better. Or under elk, deer, etc. But even that is very general and covers a wide geographic range.

However we will certainly discuss and add the new forum if more people are interested.

So... put in your 2 cents and let us know! We're always open to suggestions on improving this forum. Thumbs up

BTW, it was brought to my attention that we already have a "wanted" section in the classifieds. It includes "hunting partners" - however people are not using that general category to post. They're still posting in other places.

There's another forum I frequent that has a "Looking for a hookup" section. Not a bad idea.......

I like the idea.
I've been looking for someone to hunt elk with for lots of years and last year we flew out to Montana to visit my wifes family and alot of them hunt and some even worked for PSE for many years and I couldn't get a invite from any of them Brick Wall,) , so this year I booked a hunt to Colorado and found some guys to go with me. All rookies. Yes
I will be looking at the classified section.

How about a sticky in each area? Something like looking for a partner?
