Well I'll speak for all the new guys.....
I'm glad I did. I was as guilty as all the rest. I read stuff on this board for quite a while but I realized that I had some stuff to say(and perhaps contribute) rather than just extract info.
I've been on some other boards but this one seems to be very organized and full of helpful folks. I have PMed several folks and vice versa and they have given me some great info. Although I just registered a couple of weeks ago I have found myself on here almost every day.
I've already picked up quite a bit of info and made some contacts that I wouldn't have made without registering.
I'll just bet that a lot of folks come here the first time trolling for hunt info.......I did.
