    Successful NM draw applicants new to forum: Read this!

    Hey all of you guys who drew tags in New Mexico and just joined the forum. Please don't just join the forum, ask everyone where to hunt, and then never come back. Introduce yourself, stick around and join in the great conversations on eastman's forum. Every year right after draw results come out this forum gets flooded with new users who expect everyone to give them secret information about their hunting unit on their first post. Get to know some people and join in the conversations before you go asking for the best spot in your unit. This really is a great forum!

    Now you've made me paranoid!. I've been on the Eastman forum for a long time and always read the NM forum. Does that count? Drew my first NM elk tag this year. Unit 17 2nd archery. But I'll wait a bit before asking for info..

    You are one quiet son of a gun with only your second post after four years on the website!

    In all honesty it is worse then if you just joined. 3 years with out posting at all just makes it look like you dont plan to participate past reading other posts. There are plenty of posts anyone can respond to even if they dont hunt or know anything about hunting (example: congratulating someone that posted about their successful hunt). Starting to post now all of a sudden after you drew a tag just makes it look like all you want is info for your hunt and then we will not hear from you again until you draw another tag. Not trying to be hard on you just the way I see it. I joined a few months after you and didnt feel I had much to add at the time either, yet I have learned alot from being on the forum and my own research and have been able to help (or atleast tried to help) a few people with what I have learned and have found a few things to post about over the years.
    "Now two flags fly above my land that really sum up how I fee. One is the colors that fly high and proud The red, the white, the blue. The other one's got a rattlesnake With a simple statement made "Don't tread on me" is what it says and I'll take that to my grave. Because this is me. I'm proud to be American and strong in my beliefs. And I've said it before but I'll say it again 'Cause my family's always fought and died to save this land. And a country boy is all I'll ever be."
