A couple of days ago, I did a search for a thread from just a few years back.

I read the replies from several different members that are no longer posting. I was surprised at the amount of guys that have just disappeared...

You would be surprised that a lot of CT guys post on other States and threads. But yes, a bunch have left, this isn't a fraction of what it used to be. I went a long time without posting as this CT page was all about Zone 11 & 12.

I hope Pat revives the website, hate to see it go by the wayside like a few other CT hunting websites.

I used to post now I am a quiet onlooker. I think it was the bad luck using live hunts that crushed my soul.

I sense a certain dynamic on this type of forum. If too many lurk rather than contribute ; then the forum becomes clipped and unattractive. Guys should stir their creative juices and post. One of my favorite outdoor writers wrote books of vignettes about topics as mundane as a pair of old hunting boots . But hunters could relate to these topics and that was key.

I’ve only been a member for a few years. I had definitely learned a thing or two from some of the guys on here. So I’m glad for that. Merry Christmas all

I put Andy (Raven) from the other site on his first turkey, a beautiful Longbeard. We also striper fished together a lot and I got him his PB 45 lber on my boat drifting live scup. I also knew cal45 very well from my fish and game club and we taught hunter safety classes together. I miss them both. Many guys from the UBC days too… Del, George, Kent, Jim, Bob, Rich, Gene etc….some are still active here which is very cool. Life never stays the same….

Big dog put me into bow hunting. He doesn’t know it, but the man has kept me out of more trouble than he knows. Go party… or get to bed early and hit the woods. There’s no question I’ll be sitting in that tree 10 times out of 10. I’m thankful for you and your son every time I sit Big dog.
