    Most popular forum?

    It seems this forum is far more active with users and guests than fishnhunt.
    Well done everyone who contributes to make this forum what it is.

    I don't want to bash fishnhunt again, but the endless 1080 threads and stupidity of making it so hard to post photos has really come home to roost. I'm sure there are other reasons that perhaps lie with its use as a political vehicle.
    I've tried to contribute there, but it's like a ghost town with any responses etc. I'm a member of a small number Facebook hunting/shooting groups, but are they also a reason? They dont allow sales generally and this site does. I don't think they have effected activity here.

    Anyway, let's keep this forum alive and kicking guys.

    I got accidentally sent to that forum a while ago when looking at link in a post. Other than that I haven't been back for years.

    Way to political for my taste over there and the administration pushing their agendas.

    Why I would never support the Game animal Council because the representatives where self serving imo.

    I notice if you look at the Home page (Board Index page) on the FH Forum - there are exaggerated numbers showing on supposed people looking at particular Threads.
    There is no way for eg 16 people "now" on the Gear & Equipment Thread and the Thread lucky to get a couple of Posts per day

    iwas amongst a few who got the DCM for consistently rarking up the nanas ,at least one chum of whom surfaces on here periodically. che3eky fuckers no sooner rid of me than sending me emails pleading for donations -I politely told the sponsor where to place his neurotic forum pricks and all.
    this place great .odd bit of strife ,but thats life eh what.

    I still pop over from time to time. I met a few people over there and there is some tuff there I read. This one seems more popular and hence grows which means it has more stuff on it. But I definitely visit this one more often.

    Fish n Hunt is not user friendly. Dumb people like me can't be bothered posting photos and even finding the latest threads is a 4 step process. Very clunky.
    Seem to be a few on there that take pleasure in personal attacks if they don"t agree with someone else"s opinion too. Hardly visit it any more.

    yup one of the reasons i dont go there...... also disappointed in the lack of guys willing to take newbies out and show them the ropes....there was a young fulla who posted asking for help , not one offer.... pm'd him offered to take him for a hunt and suggested he try another site where the guys were a bit more inclined to help out a newbie.....think its called nzhuntingandshooting?

    The other site is also suffering the loss of some key members, ones who contributed a lot over the years, with info, helping newbies and organising get togethers.

    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    I go on both.
    There's good bastards on both and plenty that frequent both forums.
    I would say this one is busier though.
    I came across this forum when I was building my AR.
