Let me clarify “elite” as I don’t want to sound rude or it to simply be taken the wrong Way. It’s really, more of a bad choice in words. What I meant or mean by elite with this site....
Start with the fact that the general public of hunters has a lot of “idiots”. I will say that. General public in life is filled with idiots. But - as Simple as this is, here’s a huge class up for people who I’d rather see contribute....
-not your immature whiny negative attack idiots all over any website. Mud slingers and morons who are every day trolls and idiots online. Which, unfortunately, is any other website or comment section anywhere online. Pretty simple - no idiots please.
-guys who love outdoors. Love hunting. Have passion to learn. Guys with little or a lot of knowledge. That would include kids. I used to read magazines and watch VHS hunting videos to learn growing up. I was a horrible hunter but I wanted to learn. I want this site to give back to youth and newer hunters who want to learn. Want newbies to be on here.
-some folks who want to learn about conservation, habitat, what makes Iowa great. Loving the state
-anything on being a successful hunter and enjoying being outdoors (killing or not).
-Maybe tailored more towards folks who are trying to kill “more mature” bucks for their area but ok with those that don’t. As in- most members might not want to shoot a 3 year old but the hunters that do- get congratulated and treated with respect. It’s being passionate about hunting mature bucks but those that don’t- being respectful and kind to those folks too. I started with shooting 1.5 year olds and nothing wrong with that imo.
-guys that want to debate. Disagree with me or anyone else. I WELCOME THIS!!!!!!!!!! No one agrees on most things. I love seeing healthy debate. I love seeing different views. I love it when someone presents information that shows me im wrong. As long as ur not a child and petty baby & rude about it- it’s a great thing to have. I personally will spank a grown man who acts like a child with debating any issue though. I love differing views!!!!!
-elite: anyone with a brain, who is decent, wants to learn or teach, has IQ over 9 & loves hunting and outdoors belongs here. I personally miss all of those categories myself so sorry I’m stuck here
I do love hearing from the true “great hunters” who do shoot Giants. I love seeing pics. I love hearing from their views and I want to learn from them. I sure like reading what others ask as well. I’ll never stop learning and i love seeing great information on this site I simply don’t see elsewhere. That’s going to GROW.
