I've ran into a few guys off MM when I've been on hunts. In always in shock when someone calls me by name and I'm 1000 miles from home and I don't recognize the person. Since they hunt the same area we do we'll meet up for a steak at the local restaurant before splitting ways.
I have my first scheduled hunt with a guy on a forum this year for woodcock. I expect it to go well or he wouldn't have gotten the invite out to our place.
