I respectfully ask the question, why would a website that has a forum concerning waterfowling, feel it needs to, or fell it can take away the First Amendment rights of it's customers in the open discussion of places for a man to hunt?

VaTailfeathers wrote:Thanks for the explaination carsonr2 and others. I didn't realize it was such a problem to talk specifics, even if it is old info. I guess there are a lot more lurkers around that didn't recognize who don't have the time or interest in participating or getting to know the guys here and they are here just to take and not give. I agree, Let guys ask on the forum and get specifics through PM's and get answered based on friendships and trust that is established than just assumed cause they simply logged on here. Kind of letting your friends know of the fish biting really good this evening off of such and such beach, rather than announcing it to the whole bar.
Concerning the deliberate mis information and the suspensions, right on. To get a guy into trouble or lead him down the wrong path is not funny, doesn't do anyone any good, except entertaining a twisted mind and is inexcusable.
HighBrassDivers wrote:Hey to everyone, I just joined the site and wanted to say I think these efforts to limit "public knowledge" of waterfowl hunting is a smart move for both this site and NC duck hunting in general. I guess I would have been classified as a "lurker" prior to joining. I started duck hunting several years ago in college at NC State and last year came across this forum. I mainly just enjoyed reading posts because it excited me for my own upcoming hunts. Just to restate what has already been mentioned I think it is very beneficial to post basic facts about your hunts. For instance what species of birds have been seen in what areas of the state, your set up tactics, and other basic tips that could help others enjoy a morning of hunting. With that said you can easily do that without pin pointing you location and other specifics. Just because I see a hundred mallards today has no bearing on what I will see tomorrow morning while the migration is on. Many times people hear "birds are at XX spot" and automatically think they will be there tomorrow. The fact of the matter is that chances are they were shot up the same day they were seen and may have just moved on. Just my input.
I appreciate this site and those that also enjoy the outdoors and hunting. There are fewer and fewer people around that actually respect the outdoors and the hunting lifestyle and I believe many of the members here give it due respect. Thanks for that and good luck next wednesday!
