Ok guys i am a new EBJ subscriber and new to this forum and i have one request. Can we PLEASE keep this forum a NON fanboy , bashing forum....Ive been on that other forum (you know what one im talking about) for a couple of years and while it has lended to a lot of good advice and info it has also all but almost ruined my love for archery. In a worl where people are trying to kill off hunting in general I feel as tho we need to all just STOP (including myself) the hate and bashing of stuff we dont shoot or use.
ok im dont ranting.....hello all :)

Welcome.....Sounds like the "other" forum left you a little flat. For the most part, the guys and gals here at Eastmans are very helpfull and have great experiences to share. IMO, just be humble with advice.

Welcome! I'm on that "other" forum as well. Mostly when I'm looking for something in the classifieds, but there is some good advice. But ya, can do without the mind numbing bickering.

Welcome Buckeyeguy2299. I hope you will find more of the positive and encouraging good advice here rather than mind numbing bickering. That has been my experience here so far. There are a lot of positive and encouraging folks with some good information on this forum.

Welcome. This is the best place I have found for education. I have learned tons here and I'm sure you will also. This community is pretty laid back for the most part. There is an occasional uproar but we self regulate. Again welcome.

Welcome and I think you will be pleasantly surprised with the general attitude on the forum. You mostly get people's opinions and not bashing. Enjoy

You are right...People just mainly give their opinions on here. We do get the occasional conflict though.. But I think you are going to have at least a little bit of that anywhere you go. Some topics just seem to push some peoples buttons a little bit more than others. Some hit a little deep for some people and some people just have emotional days.. Like me, if you start talking crap on wyoming, be prepared for my girl side to come out. It doesnt happen very often but when it does there is a whole lot of head movement, raised eyebrows and some bad words :)
Welcome once again! haha

I think you will find out, as I have, these people here on this site are awesome! I am a new-b to elk hunting and backpacking the backcountry, and the folks on this site have been a huge help and encouragement. I have no doubts you will feel at home!

Nah, I'm still around. I did notice that you deleted me off your friends list though. Where'd the love go?

I was shocked to know there are other forums as well. Ha Ha.............Welcome, I think you will find the people here are very knowledgeable in respected fields, and the forum moderators have a pretty good handle on things here.
