    I would much prefer a nicer sounding civilian marker.....like ENH(eager new hunter) than an old course military marker that shows a distancing of oneself from another.

    As an experinced hunter...its up to us to embrace, educate, and pass on the privilage. Not distance ourselves as pros vs FNG's.

    The whole post title just rubbed me a little coursely.
    I hunt because......

    I agree, I am not a fan of the FNG term. I have debated renaming the thread.

    I wasn't lookin to rub any one the wrong way. I didn't realize there was a more aggressive marketing campaign to get traffic to the site like IKIC said. Scott if you want to change the title to something else that is fine.
    Cheers

    Guess I'm lucky i never have used or recieved PM's untill a week or 2 ago. When i sent some information to someone and now its started a conversation on the topic, the only one I received out side of that was from a person responding with information i asked about in a thread on optics. So i luckily have not had any bad experience with PM's.

If I get a reply and they seem to want to talk then I will help them.
    Same here Musket...answer a question, point in the right direction...and get dropped like a hot potato. No respect.
