To expand on what Mr. Sunset said above, I will share my personal experience with JHO...that I hope perhaps some of the Newbies and "one post wonders" will read. I lurked on this forum for a long time, it wasn't until earlier this year that I really started to participate in the forums. In that short time, I have made several new friends that I have met and hunted with in person, and there are more in the hopper. I've gained access and information on new places to hunt, some I've never heard of...and some even on private land. I would dare to even say I've been given one or two "honey holes" (seems like a swear word on here now). I've had my bow restrung for no charge, been offered better equipment than mine to borrow upcoming trips, and had an all around eye opening experience...and again made some new and probably life-long friends. I think I really started here around March so less than 6 months time for all this to happen. All from a little bit of giving back, sharing what I know, staying (mostly) positive, and trying to help some other hunters in the process. It doesn't take a long time or an incredible amount of effort. Just be willing to share, and have a good attitude.
