To get people to become members of the forum and contribute something.  It costs nothing and benefits the advertisers.  Why would we let anyone who contributes nothing get everything for free.

Plenty of scabs out there who give nothing back just trolling through here for info and places to hunt.

Can guarantee that every report posted where the location is given away or is able to be guessed will attract hunters to that spot that never would have gone there other wise
  

Despite the rising cost of living it still remains popular

I am of the opinion that anyone who gets useful advice or simply enjoyment from reading reports on here owes us nothing. Anything I have posted on here that I think might be of use to someone is for anyone to see not just members.

Visitors see the advertisements regardless of if they are a member or not so there is no additional benefit for advertisers and seeing the richer content on here like the reports is what made me join and start contributing in the first place.

I like it being public, nothing to hide around here.

I'm all for helping guys out with info and spots in fact you would have to go a long way to find someone that has helped more people with info, tips and spots to hunt with detailed maps etc than me but.....
I'm only willing to help out those that show a bit of enthusiasm and initiative not those that just sit back and bludge everything they can get.

I've been talking to a few other members recently about starting a thread to help out a young hunter with no roll model or anyone to show them the ropes. An apprentice type thing, Watch this space

Exactly madness. I have done the same. If Alan could say we have 10,000 registered members then it would make an huge difference to the forum.  Instead there is no reason to contribute.

bloody good to see hairy's boy getting a few prizes. that should suss him out for a while. there are a few good buggers on this forum alright!

I would have put my report up but I just put it in the reports section as it was more about my learning about sika than anything of any size being taken..didnt think it was worthy.

theres always next year though Smiley

Gentlemen, there are prizes on the way to all those that have sent me a mail address.

Amazingly some of you prize winners have not passed a mail address on to me. Perhaps youve not been online and have been outside actually hunting.  Shocked

No hurry but it would be nice to get it all sorted out.  Smiley

Torch arrived today, thanks Headcase!

So far I've blinded 2 staff. Must stop tutu-ing with it.
  

It's ok if you disagree with me. I can't force you to be right.

Jesus H CHrist.... I just got some batteries for that torch and nearly burnt a hole in the F'n curtains...  That is an insane bit of kit.  I feel a bit like Luke Skywalker carrying that around.  Will be far to dangerous for Flynn to have all the time.... I will need to take care of it till he is old enough.  Grin Grin Wink

Actually I have been going to set up a young hunters thread but keep forgetting to do it.... Im wondering if we make it that only a certain age and under can post and then what age would that be...
