    Yep. The site hasn’t taken on new members since Dec 2020 as per the bottom of the page.

    Another spam scammer at that.

    And we seem to have picked up a new active member who goes by the name of Bixxor.
    Welcome, sir.
    I asked him a question but have not heard. He is involved in site security and development.

    gotta go, dinner bell ringing.

    jimbo, this site is doomed. It's going the way of the dodo bird and the passenger pidgeon.
    Adding "clicks" won't do one iota of good.
    From what I understand, Bonnier has the site blocked so that no new members can register.
    It's only a matter of time before they pull the plug. Maybe they (Bonnier?) will replace it with something else, but I doubt it.
    Why maintain a site with less than 30 members when other sites garner members in the hundreds and clicks in the hundreds of thousands?

    When I was a kid in Central NY a deer track was a big deal. The water was opaque it was so dirty, and if you wanted to see a bald eagle or an osprey you went to a zoo or a library. Today 60-70 years later CNY is loaded with whitetails. Party permits to shoot does are easy to come by and if you put some time in tags are quite fillable. NY kills over 220,000 deer a year, about 200,000 a year more than the number killed in 1950. Eagles are everywhere and there is an osprey nest on every cell tower or at least it seems like it. The water is as clear as it is in British Columbia.

    I hunt with a Winchester model 12 made 100 years ago, or with my wedding gift, a 760 Remington 30-06 my wife bought me in 1971, which makes it only 50 years old. 2050 ain't that far away.

    I doubt very seriously that I will be worried about anything happening in 2050. Other than the fact that nasty pelosi and upchuck schumer will probably still be in congress.
    What do you think the 'state' of hunting will be ? will there still be guns ? Deer herd better or smaller ? Young pleople going hunting ?

    HEY! I resemble that remark! 😡
    LOL!

    To all those archers who complain. A cross bow IS still archery!
    To all those muzzleloader purists.
    An inline is STILL a muzzle loader!
    To all those bolt action fanatics.
    An AR is just a semi auto without wood! Browning, Remington and Winchester (just to name a few!) all make semi auto hunting rifles!

    Never thought I'd hunt with an AR. It's my "go-to" deer rifle these days.

    There's always geezers who oppose change just because it makes them uncomfortable. I want to keep an open mind to new technology. The 2050 generation of hunters will/are growing up with computer gaming and such technology will be very comfortable for them to use.
    Ain’t just geezers PH, it may be my influence but the Kid wouldn’t be on board with a Smart Scope for the type of deer hunting we do. Not saying he would be opposed for pig control and what not. Pretty sure he has buddies that would feel the same.


    Edit, side note; Just as an example he has a doe tag and passed on 9 deer he could have taken today. He’s just not ready to pull the trigger for the freezer yet. For him it’s about the hunt not the kill.

    That computerized optic scope was mentioned when the Military first got it.
    I think case less ammo will be next to lessen weight of ammo. I was talking to a lady friend deer hunter and she just got an electric heated parka.

    I wouldn’t be surprised if there’s some pushback against some of the technology for “fair chase” considerations. At least at first. I’m not sure how many special seasons can fit on a calendar but at some point you either have to draw a line or just let anything go.

    I agree wit PH , not much will change.
    The UN 2030 plan calls for conserving 30 percent of land all around the world as wilderness. NWTF and other hunting groups have signed on to this agreement.
