Howdy Folks! Long time, no see!!!!

Recommended Posts

Sup everyone?  I joined this forum way back in 2002, back when all we had was dial up internet.  I used to live on here when I wasn't in the woods or on the water.  Looking forward to talking with some old friends and making new ones.

Welcome back! That KY elk tag is a long shot but generally has pretty good success rates. Looks like a nice one.

Nice bull!  Any elk over 300" is pretty interesting and over 350" is a really good bull.

Good to have you back!  There's not many still hanging around.

What happened to all my post counts?  I know I had over 5000!  I look like a newb!  Wheres Tominator, Buckee, Turkeygirl and the crew!  We used to laugh, cry, fight, makeup, hate each other and sing God Bless The USA and THEN move onto the next post.  wtnhunt is only still on here because, if I remember, nobody else would have him, lol.

A lot of older posts were lost in one of the many "upgrades".  Figure I lost more than 10 thousand.  There are loads of posts that are missing content ie missing posts from members like yourself and me.

Chris has not posted here in a good while, last I heard he was doing ok.  Ultimately there was a blowup between a fairly new member and an older member/moderator and some of us got drug into it.  Most did not like the outcome.  One was banned, the other thought he was banned and quit coming around.  

Turkeygirl was still around quite a bit up until last year, my wife is friends with her on facebook, she still posts there.  Not sure why she has not been around much lately.  

Several members got frustrated with some of the prior versions of the forums.  There were a lot of issues prior to the current where things just did not work right and folks had login issues as well.

Nice bull.

A lot of the forums have really lost their popularity with the rise of Facebook the last decade or so. Places like this, the old Matthews Forum that is no longer in existence, and a few others even locally here have either dwindled or gone to the Wayside completely. I used to come here fairly often, I didn't post very much but I enjoyed seeing other people's successes and reading along on some of the threads. It just seemed lately I was getting bored with the one or two places I was visiting and decided to hit up some of the old forums that I'm still logged in at and keep those logins active. I kind of like the small number here because there arent going to be many arguments and any of that crap to have to Wade through. Anyways welcome back and again congratulations on your bull.
