    I hadn't been on here, in a very long time. Stopped by to read the turkey threads. Noticed this place has slowed down. What's going on?

    People come here to complain about politics now instead of hunting/fishing

    The only thing in this world any of us can change is ourselves.

    Politics seems to take over. That does hurt participation. The change to posting pics seems to have hurt too. Not near as many pics as we used to have.
     
  7. There are plenty of hunting and fishing forums to read if you don’t like politics. Discussions other than hunting and fishing is kinda what the community forum is about. If you don’t like it then I suggest moving along and only looking at the hunting and fishing forums. Pretty simple fix.

    That's what a lot do. I post very little in the community section now. Problem is the other sections have lost a lot of traffic the last few years. Many of them go days without a new thread and then maybe only a post or two then it's forgotten. Just look at the fishing section. We are right at the start of real fishing and it's lucky to see one post a day.. Only the deer section gets any real traffic these days. Maybe a few new threads in a section when a season gets close then that's it.. this was a great forum but no one can deny participation is down.not very many of us old guys still very active. Most have moved on because they don't care for the forum now(for whatever reason). Facebook has taken a lot of traffic from forums it seems. Not just here, a lot of them

    The hunting threads is what I was referencing. Used to be several good/informative/timely topics. Not so much now it seems. I think I see the problem though. I will heed your advice, and move on.

    It's not just here but on all the hunting/shooting forums I'm on. Ever some of the major predator forums don't get the number of posts in the middle of the new season they did when I first started reading them. Several handgun forums are about ready to simply close and go away.
