"There are some who can live without wild things and some who cannot." - Aldo Leopold

There are some outdoor forums where the resident experts, holier-than-thou’s and other piranhas would rather rip throats than engage in civil discourse. I bet the moderators of these sites are heavy drinkers.

“Oh God, what is StandStud300WinMag going to say today that could cause me to lose my job?”

Sometimes it’s fun to stop by - more as a virtual train-wreck than anything else – to watch some neophyte have his colon clawed at for inquiring about hunting turkey with rifles or feeding deer with corn or agreeing with anything the local game department does. My guess is if you’ve spent any time at all on some of these sites, you know what I’m talking about.

I like to go the opposite direction if I’m going to attach my signature line to a thread. I would like some polite advice and return the favor when asked. I like a joke or two and an easy-going atmosphere.

This is why I actively participate at BackcountrySportsmen.com (BCS). I’ve been a member for a while now, and I truly enjoy the company in these parts. There’s a wealth of information whether one wants to fish or hunt, cook or camp, or just BS for a while.

The Administrator, Mike AKA EbbTide, runs a good show. The folks here are knowledgeable, friendly people. The Photography section is top-shelf, and there’s a myriad of interests represented. It's just a fun place to hang out for a while.

So surf on over to BCS and sign up, join the conversations and enjoy!
