I think people, including me get tired of politized & industrialization of hunting. We get frustrated ! There is too many "groups" that think they know what is best for the animals & the consumer . Money, sustainability, residency, natives to the land, ( ie Alaska) outfitters, etc all have a MO.

People get emotional about topics that are near & dear to their hearts & hunting is one. I put the skid chain on my tongue because I will make a complete arse out of myself because I don't have the time, energy or knowledge to keep up. So I read & creep around to see what is happening & I can "feel" the frustration of people on some of the "laws & regulations" that are either imposed or recommended. Thus, I believe people need a " break" from it. Including me.
Understood Bob. Please do check in and stay in touch.

I haven’t had time to post much, work and kids have kept me busy. I do skim posts when I get a chance. I can do that one handed while one of my daughters sits with me in my recliner watching cartoons. Got to enjoy that while they are still little.

I haven't posted in the last couple weeks because I just returned from a fly-in fishing trip to Canada. Full story and pic in the fishing thread.
Before I left, our group of 3 had a meeting to plan our Colorado elk hunt (1st rifle) in October. The season is coming up boys.
As far as the forum posts go; I think that snarky responses turn off most people, especially when it comes to political issues. Most of us remain civil, but a few do not, and some of those drop out because they do not participate here to listen to that crap....we get enough as it is every time we turn on the TV. None of us like censorship, but as this is a voluntary forum and a HUNTING FORUM, I do appreciate the moderators deleting posts that go too far.

My take on it is life gets in the way for a lot of us, mainly work, family etc. I believe it been an exhausting year for most. I read a lot of the forum but don't always comment due to lack of experience, hopefully that changes in the future. I have been on quite a few forums skimming through in the past and I have found that this is one of the more straight up forums with good people, I have seen some of the Face book forums and followed them, if you know anything about FB then you can imagine how the conversations go on that site.
 
I'm still new to this forum....only becoming active the last year or so. But when I registered, I remember noting to myself how slow and inactive this forum is compared to others like Rokslide and 24HourCampfire. Still, I like it here because the political BS is way less present than other sites, despite what some here are saying.

And then there is me, been off for quite a while…but making a point to get back as of today. This is the only forum I’ve ever been on because I enjoyed the camaraderie and great group of folks here. Just got caught up with life and a lot less hunting the past couple years. It’s still a running joke that I met a hunting buddy here who happens to be a pretty good dude with a great family. And, Roger, we are appreciative that you invited us to your home my last trip out west! Looking forward to reading more from all of you again.
