I'm still here!

I'm still here too!  I was one of those that joined during the contest era.  I often read without commenting... but I've still learned a lot from you guys!  Thumbs up

I've been spending a lot of time with my "deer managment" program at the Ohio farm and at my mother-in-laws in upper Michigan helping to put in a bathroom for my disabled brother-in-law. 

I also visit www.huntbuds.com  Not too many westerners on that one though.

I joined during the contests,

I joined during the contests, but not because of the contests. I liked the quality and quantity of information on this sight, as well as the friendly people. Most of the other hunting forums that I have checked out have a dominantly negative or even hostile feel to many of the responses.

While the contests did drive some wasted posts from people searching for points (I was probably guilty of that as well), I think it also contributed to more user-posted stories. The user-posted stories are something rather unique to this website, and something I enjoy thoroughly. One quick way they could improve this website would be to improve the searching and navigating of the user-posted stories.

I think the real reason this website is dying is because they are trying to really on feeds from Outdoor Hub for content without adding content specific for this website. I don't know about anyone else, but I haven't found anything from the feeds from Outdoor Hub that I enjoy. Basically, I think the new ownership is just trying to collect advertising dollars as easily as possible without putting any effort into building and maintaining a quality website. I plan on sticking around on this website because I do still enjoy it and the people that I have "met" on it. However, if I ever happened to come across a website that better matched the experience this website provided when I first joined, I don't know how much time I would invest in this website.

Remembered to come back

Between Starting a new job working three different shifts planning a wedding and becoming a firefighter I had forgotten to post on here. Shoot I hadn't done anything but be busy since spring lol but i'm back on here now and I'm excited to talk to my fellow enthusiastic hunters I have gotten a new camcorder to film hunts and I am very excited to try it out and post video on here. I picked up a Mathews compound off ebay because i have been too busy to shoot the ol' recurve lately. My brother drew a kentucky cow elk tag so I hope to get that footage. so good luck to all you guys and its good to be back on here.

Congrats on the wedding!

As for low activity I don't know why someone has to approve stories and blog entries before they are posted. I know of at least one of each that have been sitting for weeks waiting for approval.

Haven't been around lately

Haven't been around lately except to check on new stuff.
From what I'm reading, someone new has bought the site and is doing nothing with it.
So - - - what's the point of that?
I'll check back in a week or so to see if there's any signs of life.
