    Yeah, after the Long range hunting discussion I haven't seen them on much. Some people were bashing guy because of his views on the topic. That thread turned pretty stupid and ridiculous. I think that had something to do with it.

    I was in that thread a lot. I don't even remember an Eastman in it?

    Then again. I was busy posting 100 MPH.

    Did I argue with him?

    Oops!

    I see regular updates and communication from the Eastmans on Facebook, but their media there tends to be updates only. I tend to see pictures, status updates, ect, unless they happen to ask folks what they think on a paticular topic or picture. I'll gather there are all sorts of reasons why they don't stay active on the forum.

    I have a very good friend in the outdoor industry who is a writer and writes books and for magazines. He does some film work now and then too. He told me the reason he does not post on forums for the most part is much of what has been already written in the posts above.

    These are some of the reasons my friend had,
    (1) He felt his time was more productive for himself and for others if he spent his time day to day on other forms of media, writing, film work and or speaking engagements to name a few.
    (2) He did feel like somewhat of a target at times posting on a forum with his own name. Some folks, my friend felt anyway just seemed to want to argue with him, knowing who he was. The debates directed at him without explaining their reasoning or conveying their success tactics or processes were frustrating for him.

    In the end my friend just felt to use his time differently.

    There could also be the possibility that they never stopped posting but just changed their sign in name. You just don't know who you're writing to on the Internet.

    Well said Kevin Root...Their will always be somebody out there "pushing their buttons" trying to "one up" somebody that makes a career in the industry. I think they figure they really don't have much to gain by spending time on the forums. I don't think they are struggling to find good elk or mule deer units, they probably hear tons of stories while on the road, and already talk to enough people about hunting, gear, tactics, etc. I guess those are the reasons I follow the forum mostly, so I don't see that they have much to gain by spending much time on here.

    I just wanted them to come by and say Hi. They don't have to get in an argument.

    I don't even remember them in the long shot thread. What do they use for names?

    After reading this thread, I looked up the other one....they show their first names and "Eastmans staff". I think it was Guy and Mike that responded. It looked to me that they come close to sharing your opinions O.H. I do too but I shouldn't say that here, sure don't want to see that one get started again.

    I agree a simple occasional comment would be nice.

    I missed it completely. I wish I had known.

    Was that the one where the guy talked about shooting an antelope at around 1000 yds and said he actually moved further away to get the shot? If I remember his handle was Tikka something.
