I belong to a lot of forums, but NJH being close to home became the one I visited most. There is a lot of information there from some very knowledgeable sportsmen. Always something learned and things to discover. The trouble was it become rife with drama and the word sportsman flew out the window. Try as you might to keep it on track, there is always someone throwing f bombs and making the experience less than desirable. It was as if there was a competition to who could be the most crude despite knowing there are women and children who visit the site. I'm not a prude by any means, but that behavior is really uncalled for. If Kris allowed that to go on I'm disappointed in him.

Also,voicing an honest opinion is met with hostility many times by those thinking they arethe smartest guy in the room. Rather than agree to disagree, arguments ensue and people pile on. Make one statement or action that don't fit the mindset of a mob and you know where it ends up. Then again maybe all those Sybil's (multiple personalities) on the site had a lot to do with that.

I'll still visit NJH as I do all the others. Knowing what to expect, of course. The one thing that is constant is change. A lot of forums are not what they used to be. People come and people go for a lot of the reasons and examples we see @ NJH . Those sites with a solid foundation on respect and sticking to the rules will continue to thrive.


You hit the nail on the head. The cop bashing threads were the ones that pretty much drove me away from that site for periods of time. I joined that site in August of 2005 hoping it would be a decent hunting forum but it turned out to be like returning to sophomore year in high school.

Heres hoping this one turns out better:beer:

This site has way more updated features. The other site is antiquated. I have a lot of LEO in my family, wasn't too fond of the cheap shots they were taking and the instigating in other threads after.

I was a member on the other site since 2005, I visited it more than any other site, but hardley posted at all the last 4-5 years. I'm over here now and only hope the mods do a much better job. and yes if there is a sponsor thing like the other site I would be interested.

That's because everyone is used to logging on to take out all their stress on other members for no reason. Like the schoolyard bully just itching to pick a fight. Then when the bully gets put in his place, he cries about it

Was a member there from early on. Just got tired of posters thinking they were professionals in every aspect of the outdoors. From game management, shot placement, politics, to how to tie your shoes, so many had such disparaging comments to others as if they were all knowing. I started by not posting, but after awhile I couldn't even stand looking anymore. Such a shame what was allowed to go on there. I do have a question. If the site was sold, why would the buyer not be concerned with improving or atleast keeping up with the site? Why would the new owner not contact the current mods to touch base or let them know whats expected of them? or simply to just "fire them"? Sounds weird to me.

Your questions are the same many of us have had for months. Can't wait around forever hoping, so I decided to create something that has a clear direction defined and will communicate with the members :up:
