    SUGGESTION BOX ~ Opinions Wanted!!!!!!!!!!!

    2013 is upon us and I have high hopes for BowhuntingOhio.com this year so I am asking everyone out there, all members of BowhuntingOhio (past and present) and even those out there lurking in the shadows, what do you see that we can improve on or change?!?!


    No holding back please, sometimes hearing the truth hurts but it is also the way to grow. Anything from how the forum is organized, to how you see things ran, what would you do differently??

    What do you think causes the slowness in the off season or better yet, how do we create more activity in the off season??

    I am with you on that 140Class, that's a good part of the reason why I enjoy and spend so much time on this site.

    Well I personally think, as many folks that say there 365 days a yr hunters, well, far too many are not really
    Come after deer season and before it, too many are just doing other things and don't either want to or have tye time to be on here
    Life has a way of taking time off you, and many folks don't have it to spare

    Maybe having more contests would help
    Like a turkey, ground hog
    Or like the trail cam pic contest
    See who can get a picture of?? Pic a critter or the likes
    As sure seems most folks like pictures on sites like this, and so many have trail cam's these days
    But its hard I guess when so many are MIA too!
    Or again no time to par take!
    Can I guess maybe do more with fishing on this site too!
    I don't fish much, but maybe others do and would enjoy having more of that here??

    Maybe a Atv ride event??

    Good response. The one thing I don't understand though with the time off thing is there are many other general forums out there that are busy year round. I am wondering, is it because people on here maybe think that since this is called BowhuntingOhio that they cannot talk about other things going on in their lives?

    On the contests I know many get burned out on doing something like that with no prize guarantee, but I wonder if that is really what goes on here. That was why I thought about doing a turkey team challenge but so far we only have 2 signed up...me and Seeker LOL! Guess him and I could just arm wrestle or something instead.

    Still have myself wondering what has made some of the regulars leave over time though. Every so often I'll see some pop back in but never for a period of time. That is what the site needs IMHO, a core group of guys that shoot the shi# now and then. That's what brought me to the site to begin with.

    Oh NO!! Your not going to rip my arm off arm wrestling Big.....I seen those Guns fella!! I wish I had the answer to alot of your questions. I know as summer starts to kick in, I tend to fade away from the computer a bit more, but I still check in pretty regular. Not real sure what we can do to kick it up a notch. But I will say that this is my Home, and It would have to complety have to fall apart for me to go anywhere. Maybe the people who should throw out some ideas should be Chris and Mike. Maybe throw a Bone out there, something that would peak interest in old and new...Give us something to hang out there and intice some ideas. I personally would love to have a BHO BBQ......I love to eat, and I am sure there are many who like the same thing. But its difficult to set something to where everyone can participate. I really need to get started with an idea for a summer camp, get together. I have a great 5 acre plot that anyone would be welcome to spend a weekend at for a get together. We could set a date, and shoot for a BBQ weekend.

    To be totally honest, the last episode with BowGuy2 did me in. Seems the guy that was causing the stink was the one sided with and the rest of us were reprimanded because of it. I know the rules here and don't need a moderator posting them up to remind me of them because someone else is being a total idiot. I get on here most days and for the most part keep my thoughts to myself. But, the way this last episode was handled rubbed me totally the wrong way.

    I know we all can't be happy with everything that goes on. I have met guys on here that have become true friends and will continue to keep in contact with them. But, my postings will be fewer than in the past.

    A summer BBQ sounds like a good idea.
    I may be opinionated...but, my opinion is the only one that matters anyway.

    Big Holla,
    as for the time off thing, I truely believe that a lot of folks use this site to just see what's going on in ohio, both before planning a
    deer hunt and during the Deer season, and thus why after deer season so many fad out till it gets close to deer season again
    a lot of the non residents of Ohio(me being one)
    and don't have an family in Ohio,
    well I think maybe don't feel like they much to add to an Ohio hunting site
    and again, fade out, with an occasional check in when time allows
    I do think many guys here might stay in touch outside of the web site too, and as such don't post due to that too
    seems like some folks here are more about being social on the site than others, using the site as a place to make friends, and not just as a hunting tool !
    I know its hard being a non resident, and several hr drive to get to ohio, to get to campouts and such, and would think many others see that as a excuse too to not par take so much maybe!
    only idea I have on getting more post and action here again is to create reasons for folks to add to all yr
    what or how exactly , well??
    thats the million dollar question I guess!
