Actually, I didn't get flamed by a soul about that post. Like I said, I knew that if I "named a lake" -
that I would probably get someone to answer my question...I got my question answered, so I edited it so that it wouldn't be "too revealing". And again, I had joined this site a long time ago. I don't have the same email that I had 6 years ago, and had no clue what my username and password was.
I moved from the southeast to the desert, and didn't know a soul when I moved here. I thought there might be some decent people on an outdoors forum that would be willing to show someone new around. I thought that forums were places to share info and possibly meet people
Pretty sure you might be blowing a few things out of proportion...you're more than welcome to go search through my posts though, and correct me if I'm wrong. I don't think I ever actually asked for any hunting or fishing spots except for trying to get some info about maybe hunting the north zone last weekend(where I'm pretty sure I offered up a hunt down south for), but I've asked folks quite a few times if they would like to get together to hunt or fish, and I post more than most over there. I don't think that equates to asking "Where to hunt,How to hunt, and when to hunt everything from turkeys to Elk & fish" . The DGF website is a joke when it comes to finding out any information for new folks, so I thought I would ask questions to a crowd that might could help out. All of the places I duck hunted last year were places that I found and scouted on my own, without any help from the internet, just in case you were wondering.
I hope you never move somewhere that is completely different than NM and ask people on here(or the local gun shop, or another forum, etc.) for help getting to know your new surroundings...that would be shameful.
"A man may not care for golf and still be human, but the man who does not like to see, hunt, photograph or otherwise outwit birds or animals is hardly normal. He is supercivilized, and I for one do not know how to deal with him." Aldo Leopold
