I like the main format of the new site but I believe that the forums area needs some help. I use to just go to "New Topics" and that would bring up what ever I wanted to but if you go there now you have to work yourself through all the filters. I would also like to be able to see a members location under their user name. At least then you may have a little better idea of where he is talking about when you reply to a question and he does not give a state or location in his post. Also you have to preview your post before you can submit it to the forums. One question, how do you seperate paragraphs now?
Thanks for the feedback guys! We're still working out the bugs and trying to get all the settings set up properly. We couldn't work on the forum portion, until we shut down the site and imported the old forum, so we've been scrambling all day trying to get it all fixed.

Simply typing like you normally do, should now allow you to create paragraphs. We did have a problem with that area.
Critter, the "new topics" should work properly in a day or two. Right now, it's seeing all the imported threads as new topics, as well as any we've edited. We noticed that problem right away, and believe it will disappear.
Will see about getting locations listed with usernames.
We hope to have all the bugs worked out by July 1st - that is when our big contest starts. Click on the Grand Slam badge at the top of all pages to read about all the great prizes. Hope you're all planning on participating!
One of the most important components of deciphering a new hunting area is distinguishing between the summer and winter ranges for the game that you plan to pursue. Without knowing this you cannot make reliable assumptions about where the game will be come opening day. Knowing these areas will allow you to take the current weather (as well as the past couple weeks) and apply that to the landscape and make an educated guess as to where you might find that big buck or bull.
There are a couple ways...
