    One rule that I have tried to follow both in my personal life and at work:

    If you wouldn’t say it to a room full of 500 people, don’t type it and hit Send.

    There are some "legal" practices that deserve condemnation. The law might be an (expletive deleted) but it doesn't mean I have to be one too because of some "fraternity."

    Hunters will very easily destroy themselves and their sport and the writing is on the wall.
    Please elaborate GW, this post peaked my interest. If you wanna pm me I am cool with that if you wanna avoid the wrath.

    Well said Fox. The one thing that really grinds my gears is people telling someone their opinion is wrong. Lol, its an opinion, not a statement of fact, therefore it is not wrong just because it differs from yours. I think people, being people, have faults and have good days and bad days. It being a public forum, everyone has posts they regret and posts they feel strongly about. Just be respectful of others and convey your message thoughtfully. This forum is an excellent source of info and hope it continues to be for a long time. We are on this earth for such a short period of time, be happy and enjoy every moment you are here. Our days, good or bad, are all part of the grand life experience.

    There was another thread where one guy was asking why the posting rate has gone down and or the quality of the posts has diminished.

    I would ascertain that people just getting into hunting or a different aspect of hunting are sick and tired of being the brunt of abusive by posters whose ethics are different than their own.

    I speak to the use of buckshot for deer, penetration testing of ammunition, turkey hunting on the roost, grouse hunting on the ground, duck hunting from a canoe, bow hunting at "X" range, etc.

    We are a fraternity of hunters, we are a very minimal spec of the population in North America and we should be standing up for all legal methods of hunting and all legal practices. If you choose not to hunt deer with dogs then fine, you should choose not to hunt with dogs but when someone asked the best breed to use keep out of the conversation, don't come on and say that it is not ethical to chase the deer and you only screw up the other guys hunt.

    For all those who keep coming on and saying how inexperienced I am at hunting or at life, etc, you have no clue who I am. To a very small group of Eastern Ontario hunters on this forum who have met me outside of the forum you know who I am and how I live. You know my challenges when it comes to hunting time, family time and work requirements. You do not criticize me for not spending 50 weeks a year in the field and talk to me about the weeks we were able to make it out. You ask me questions about what I may have more knowledge of and give your experiences and pass along your knowledge of what you are more knowledgeable in.

    I would like to continue being a member of the forum that supports those new hunters and help build their experience and I realize that I will always be learning when it comes to these sorts of things.

    Lets keep things fair and civil and move along.

    I hope everyone on the forum reads these posts. Well said gentlemen and ladies, we are a very small group and at times must stick together. Yes we can disagree but in the end we are all outdoorsmen and outdoorswomen.
