Default A section just for kills?

As I wade through pages and pages of Around the Campfire looking for this seasonís kills, I canít help but think it would be so much easier if there was section for JUST KILLS. It could be for any weapon of choice, and any species of animal, maybe even have a subset for the bow kills? It seems a guy will put up a kill theyíre proud of and it will be on page 4 a few hours later due to a plethora of non hunting related threads. We have recipes section and a day lease section, so why not a kill section?

A LDP thread that is sticky to the top would be nice. Maybe even make it two threads - one for bow and the other for other.

We need a section just for live hunts since people do season-long threads just for their own hunts.

We had something like this before but when it wasn't hunting season, there wouldn't be enough traffic in that section to warrant keeping it. So now most of the "live" hunt threads and LDP threads get washed down the eternal hole known as ATC.

How about as section for each time AntlerCollector makes a post?

Just joking!

They would have 100 sections for each persons wants, think about trying manage a group this size that wants their own personal section. Not knocking you, but think about the effort for them to manage all this special sections.

The bowhunting reports section was canned so that more hunting traffic would be steered towards ATC.

Post your kills and congratulate others and they'll stay on page one and have more visibility than ketchup and beans.

I visit some on line sites (specifically for air guns) that have forums for everything you can think of... for the most part, they are just so cumbersome to sort through, I got tired of that after a while and stopped visiting them... never could find what I was looking for... Put it all in one spot and learn to use the search option... works pretty good...

I agree, i wish the Bowhunting Reports would come back. maybe it just laziness but i have a hard time looking past the first couple pages on around the campfire cause its much to broad of a section. But bowhunting reports you knew exactly what was going to be there.

How long have you been a member here TxF? In the past, there was a bowhunting reports section for our archery kills for as long as I have been a member here circa 2005. That changed last year when Michael (per his thread on this very subject) decided he want to infuse a little more bowhunting fodder into the "Around the Campfire" forum. Plus....some folks couldn't follow simple directions and posted their kills and story in the ATC anyway and not the Bowhunting reports section before the move.....I'm assuming to get more views and replies. I'm guessing here, but the mods probably got tired of having to move them too. I kinda diggin' the kills in the ATC myself. It helps water down and push down the Facebook type like posts...plus it makes it easier for the winder likkers who couldn't follow directions beforehand by allowing them to put their kill LDPs in the ATC.......



In the grand scheme of things ....I'm good with it either way. I understand wanting it all in one kill section for easy access ...but I also understand the ease of puttting it all in the campfire for the mods and members alike.

Do you two hold hands when you see each other?

All kidding aside I wish they'd bring it back ( bow hunting reports) . You could go straight to that section and read up on some of the great success members had in the field. And yes I know you can do that now with the search button, but its not near as easy and stories are still missed.
