    New Guys

    Its crazy how many guys are signing up to the forum before most of big game drawings, or after they have drawn their tag looking for spots. I don't even know why they waste their time signing up, most of the info they are looking for has already been said in other threads. Just an observation.
    I am new also but I plan on stickin around giving my two cents every now and again.
    Cheers

    Well I'll speak for all the new guys.....

    Why Register:
    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.

    Ha ha…it happens every year. I'm glad you are sticking around Jrod. Most of the guys on Eastman's are super helpful, but sometimes it is hard when there is so much "dine and dash" with new members.

    And JRod.... those are some nice X zone bucks...... got X3b Archery (twice) when I was stationed in CA but couldn't seal the deal on anything decent. Saw more cat tracks than deer tracks.

    We are happy they have joined us. We are here to help in any way we can. Eastman's prides ourselves on helping the beginner hunter as well as the seasoned hunters. It is up to you as a forum member to choose to give or not give help to the new guys. Should you give up your honey holes well I wouldn't. But will I help someone find their own honey hole? YES absolutely. Give advise to help each other out. Be respectful. We all has to start somewhere and we want that to be Eastmans.
    I don't Break the rules, I Modify them.

    There's a nifty feature on the forum where you can't see the attached photos of successful hunts from "X unit" unless you register. I will admit that has been the cause of me registering on a cpl forums so I could see what those deer looked like.

    What I am finding interesting, as I am coming up on my 1 year anniversary of having joined this forum and I guess now that I have a few posts to my name, is the PM's that I get from new guys that haven't even made a post on Eastmans at all. It appears they register just to ask questions in the background.

    Those of you more "senior" members I can not imagine what you go through that some of us never see.

    I got a pm recently from someone that joined in 2011 and had 0 posts. I get a few from guys with none or very few posts and most of them I never get a 2nd pm, a thankyou or ever hear from them again. Anymore I give very brief general info at first. If I get a reply and they seem to want to talk then I will help them.
