Nope, can't view your page on my blackberry. I don't know if your a backwoods hitman or just a geaugaboy, but having 2 team names is cool.

I used to go to Geauga lake in Ohio when I was a kid, I'm pretty sure it was near Sea World in Ohio. I don't think its there any longer, is it?

Not only do they have a team name, they each have an alias within their team. It's kinda like their call sign if they were a fighter pilot. I imagine the scene out in the field:

"Hey Backwoods we got geese at 5 O'clock high."

"I see'em Geauga. I hit'em with some callin' and you flag'em."

"Roger that Backwoods."

not bad, here is what bothers me. home page, the writing is a little rough, find someone with some writing skills to clean it up.
you mention your into conservation and hunting, getting people, kids out yet all your pix are tailgate kill pix, to me it looks like conservation is nowhere on your mind, just limits and bragging. get some pix of kids out in the woods, birds working, sunrises, setting wood duck boxes, a kid holding up his first duck, noticed I said his first duck, not his first "kill"
good work though, good to see some ambition :thumbsup:

It does look like you guys are a group that crap in the woods. Change the e mail! Are you a group that takes people just to introduce them to hunting or are you a guide service, not real clear. The home page needs some work too. Home page, although it needs to be clean and not cluttered, should show a little of everything that you are offering to get people's interest up and get them to follow the links into the site.

Just being honest here It's garbage. Just go by a video recorder and record every hunt you do put it to terrible music and then put it on You Tube. Don't clog the internet with another useless page.

It's a good looking site, but I fail to see the point of it.

Observations:
It looks fine on my Droid. Blackberry probably doesn't have Flash.
Auto-loading music on websites is annoying as Hell.
Facebook would be a much easier and effective way to spread your message... whatever it is. Your content would be more dynamic and you would have a means of maintaining fresh and current topics and dialogues with your fans.
Websites are so 2005.

Just at a glance, the sentence structure and punctuation is bad, at best... Could use a lot of help there... The members section seems redundant, with all the talk about being good at killing game for all of the group... Look at a professional company's pro staff page and emulate their styles... Also, if I were creating this site, I would use an original picture of something for the homepage, rather than the photo you have chosen... Granted, it looks good, but to me it seems blurry or something? I would also clearly state your purpose as a group, unless I have the wrong impression and it is just you and your buddies webpage about hunting and there is no real purpose for it, that of which I would have chosen Facebook instead to get more people on board and following you all... Not knocking you guys at all, but it looks like it was made by high school kids, which you are, and there's nothing wrong with that, but you could improve vocabulary, punctuation, grammar, diction, and presentation (all basic English class skills)... And using words like "kills" (We have gotten many people their first kills like deer, turkeys, and waterfowl.") doesn't really help your cause... Try using more gentle words, Something like, " We enjoy getting newcomers into the great sport of hunting", or something like that... :thumbsup: Good work though, I'm just trying to help :beer:

:ditto: I think you guys have your heads in the right place but right now it just looks like a braggin board. Maybe throw up an events calendar with conservation oreinted events that you guys will be attending and how other people can get involved.

I am happy with all the feed back we have edited the sentence structure, and listed what kind of conservation projects we have done the last few years. The more input I get the better thank you everyone.

The website is rough, but i think you guys are going in the right direction. Here are some things I observed: Some parts of the website seem "awkward" for lack of a better word. The info tab could probably be replaced by a paragraph instead of its current format. (For example: "Specializing in: Outdoor Activities") The picture tab needs some work as well. Try to format the pictures so its not a slideshow, but has a menu where people can click to zoom. I would also include pictures of the first-timers with their bag. The members section is redundent (as someone else said). Everyone on there is "good at killing birds" just stated in different words. The comment tab is odd. I geuss it goes back to the first question why was this site formed? Are you trying to get into guiding, or are you just making a "team" site? Are you looking for comments about your site? Or is it your version of your site forum? One last thing, lose the email name. I looked at it and thought you guys were the backwood shitmen. If your trying to get big, you dont want that as your email.

Perferrably wound it with the shotgun and then kill it with a machette.

Now who takes a machette duck hunting with them? :huh:

Wound them with a shotgun and bite their head, now that's a picture. :thumbsup:

im not exactly dead sure what your goal is, it seems to me that any team worth their salt is also backed by a company or the owner of a company, i liked the site it was interesting. but if you take kids out focus on the kids not the kills, if you are putting effort into canservation show more to support this. also try to get involved with you local DNR and do project through them volunteer work ofcoourse.and above all make sure that while killing your game is the goal in hunting show some appreciation for just being lucky enough to experience it, people who like to hunt complain about not getting anything; people who love to hunt complain that they didnt get to go. good luck with the site.

The point of this site is hopefully be able to network out and form a known hunting team. Everyone one has to start somewhere and this is our way of trying to get better and hopefully one day become a know team.
