    Where are all the regular guys/posters?

    Haven't been on for a while do to health issues, I'm surprised/disappointed to see that the diehard year round/off season posters have vanished?? Seems to be mostly new out of state guys doing the posting!!! And some "city kids" pimping their videos. Offtheground, hortontotor, radicalxl, stonegod are they still regulars? Did any of them get banned? Stonegods last few posts seemed like he wasn't planning on hanging around. Has anyone had any contact with these guys?

    With my health issues lately I haven't been on much so if somethings have happened that have caused others to drop off I don't know. I was kind of thinking the same things though lately, so many of my old friends that used to be on here just don't stop by any more and it really does suck. This used to be my most favorite place on earth to sit and chit chat, make friends, have discussions, get advice, etc. but I just don't know what to say any more. Heck, maybe it's me........so disappointing..........

    Things are in a transition for sure. Spring fever has set in, and people are pretty busy right now. Besides, there really hasnt been much to chat about. I am sure its not you Big Holla....lol I think with every forum site you get to a point where you run out of things to cover. Turkey season is coming, and that will bring in some conversation. Bunch of new people coming on, and maybe that will bring some good new material.......then again maybe not. If you actually end up staying a regular on this site, you will come to find its a really good group of Regulars. I have become friends with some really cool people on here. Just remember, everyone has an opinion, you just have to decide whos opinion you want to listen too! lol And Big, this is the only Bowhunting Forum that I spend any time on and I still think it Rocks. You and the rest of the admin have always made things easy to understand, and quick to answer questions. Keep up the great work!!! Seeker BP

    Funny that you reply to this thread, you're one of those regulars that I was referring too but just couldn't recall your site name!lol There are a few more also that I didn't mention, my point was that you and those other regular diehard guys managed to keep things interesting even during the slowest of times!! You with your many pics, hortontotor with his experienced advice/opinions, radicalxl with his opinions and common sense, stonegod with his humor. I knew stonegod from another site years ago, one of those all around outdoor sites, he spoke his mind but always in a humorous way, at that time he was hunting small game and catfish and foraging mostly. When he finally left that site along with a few of his site friends it just all went to hell and got stale and boring. Seems like some of the remaining regulars on here just take themselves too seriously and that just ashame, hunting should be fun and not a job.

    Yeah it is that time of year where things do slow down a bit. I guess I get a bit nostalgic when I think back to years past this forum would be lit up with shed finds, plenty of discussions of last seasons results, plans for spring, trail cam pics...trail cam pics....trail cam pics, etc.. I'll name names of the people I miss seeing on here....first and foremost Split_G2. The dude knows his shit when it comes to deer and figuring them out. I couldn't wait to see the trail cam pics he constantly would have and the discussions...not only were they over the top with information they were always a riot to be part of. Blackbeard....wow what a wealth of knowledge and this guy has the deer on his wall to show for it. I know he often tries to get topics started but seems the participation of the forum usually let him down, at times me included. Here are a few more that I know stop by now and then but it's just not like it used to be: Kinzy, Superbuckeye, Stickarcher, MikeF, Redneckross, Deerhunter, BWTR737, the site owners and many many more. Guess I'm going through that "I ain't got shit to do because I'm sitting at home with a neck brace on so I might as well get teary eyed" but I sure do miss the interaction....the way things once were.

    I've only been a member since last summer, but since I've been healing in bed since fall, I've read about 30 old posts per day so I know the site well. It's guys like you, with their heads in the sand saying everything is just fine that finally kills a site!! Wake up!!!! Your main site mod/leader big_holla sees the writing on the wall, even stated that "this use to be" his favorite site to go to. From posts I've read it seems your back door shaded attacts on one member sent him off to another site. As for this site having a " great bunch of regulars" again your head is stuck in the sand, they are leaving the site.

    well guys all 3 of my trail cam's all stopped working two weeks ago, for un known reason, managed to give them a break and well two seem to be working again, just put them back out yesterday so, will have a few pic;s in a week or so

    Big Holla I agree with you, the old regulars are missed for same reasons as you said
    but everyone's lives i guess change , family time get more of teh free time they used to have and hell this economy is doing few any good I know
    including me!

    seems just like good old days are gone

    Hey I resemble that!! You should start a thread on reasons why regular members have left the site. Yeah, maybe your questions would be answered. Maybe not!! I have seen several post from people who have not posted in years...they didnt leave, they just became busy in there life and other prioritys were taken ... This site is far from dying, maybe the regs are just sitting tight waiting to see who will be on the site for more than 2 weeks and then dissapearing. Cant make everyone happy!! Sure would be a perfect world though, would it not?? Seeker

    Yeah that's where I am at on this as well mrbb. I know things change in people's lives and time isn't always there like it used to be. Guess that's just the way it is and will be. I too get caught up in my every day things going on, softball with my daughter, work, home projects and all. Easy to do. I guess for me since I don't live in Ohio I miss being there most every day so that is one thing that always draws me back to the site. As for the friendships that have come and gone I have always been one to feel if you are a friend of mine it's for life, no matter how much time goes in between or what life's brought to you in the meantime. Hopefully some will come back and hopefully some new members will fill the voids. It's people such as Seeker who would take the time to check on me while in the hospital that makes this whole thing worth coming back to. That's what BowhuntingOhio.com is about!!!
