Can I change my vote again? I first got on THF to talk about bird dogs and quail hunting. Quail hunting really is like walking in and a beautiful painting all day long.

I learn every time I come on here. 'Never come on here "to teach".

For the record, this is just a COMMENT, as you posted "comment any way you like". 'Not trying to "teach" in anyway whatsoever.

And...there's one...or two (?) lonely, older men that think they're "teaching" every time they come on here. They're not. bolt

Really? The world's coming to an end. That was #2 with Mom, right after "As The World Turns". I'm scarred for life.

It's always proper to cite the writer your quoting, in this case, Gene Hill. Uh-oh, did I just "teach"? bolt

#1..!!! Comic Relief

I often ask questions if I’m working on something I’m not familiar with. Usually reloading related. I’ve got a lot to learn.

Ever so rarely, someone ask a question and I actually know the answer.

Can I change my vote again? I've evolved. Now I like to talk about vegetable gardens. Nothing beats home grown tomatoes. I spread them all around my neighborhood.

I'm getting old if I ain't already there and heck, I can't even "teach" my dog to sit. He always tries to add the H to the sit.

I’m here because I’m doing research. I can’t decide on a Ford or a Ram. Or if I should go with BFGs, Nittos, or Toyo. So, I guess it’s #1. Been here many years and don’t post much because I’m too busy reading. Just when I think I’ve made up my mind, another post about tucks and tires and I have to start all over again.

When you start losing your hearing, hair and eyesight like most of us old guys, you'll lose sight of the truck and tire fiasco and start posting good stuff. You can take that "to the bank."

All sorts of reasons. 1-4+ I’ve noticed since I joined in 2011, due to what the level of douchebaggery on the other side, just how MANY great folks there on here. Met quite a few so far. There are tons left that I’d still like to meet, Shake their hand. I’ve made one HECKuva solid group of friends that I’d put up against anyone else’s caliber of buddies, any day.

There are SO many different walks of life, all from different backgrounds, have such different stories while having similar common interests, values beliefs, careers, specialties etc. Sure there are some that go against the grain but for the most part, great folks here that I’ve come to gain a lot of respect and admiration for. There’s even a couple that when I grow up, I wanna be just like them. Others, not so much. roflmao

I enjoy the commentary (most of the time). And there is an absolute ton of information on here. As I have told my wife, somebody on the hunting forum will have info or experience on just about any question that can be asked. Somebody has been there..somebody has done that...

And, you guys tolerate my rants about my pole saw.

Very well said, I’ve made some really good friends on here.

Very good comments. I haven't been very active on here long enough to actually get to know many first hand. Certainly I know there are good ones on here, I can tell by their posts. Kind of like the squeaky wheel getting the grease I guess the annoying minority really stand out and lots of good ones sit back in the shadows.
So, should we add a #5 and say a reason to be on here is to meet new friends?? I never thought of that as a reason to be on here but i would like to get more acquainted with guys that take Trophy deer management/hunting real serious.


At some point in life its time to quit chasing the pot of gold and just enjoy the rainbow. FR

Idk what you’re talking about. I love your post. Direct, to the point, and pretty much spot on.
