    I have always been amazed by how many posts some have to their credit. Sometimes I feel like I post a lot-too much even. But I have only 550 plus. Some have 5-6-7000!! I was just shutting down the computer and heading down to the duck camp for a shoot tomorrow when I noticed that a thread I had offered solutions on was being answered by others somewhat differently. Then I noticed that 7 others who had different advice had collectively almost 30,000 posts. That's enough to make anyone question their own post validity. No wonder some lurk!

    Glad I'm going duck hunting though!

    Cheers

    Nonsense! You don't post too much ... more like too little. There are lots of internet Rambos who seem to have the answer to everything. I hope the post count for most of the other folks is reflective of the fact that they have been on the site for several years. That's my excuse, anyway.

    I've been on RTF for way too long and I mostly post GDG - I use to try and help with training advice, but for a few reasons I decided it wasn't worth the brain damage and who the heck wants to hear what I have to say?? So I stick at what I'm good at - GDG! And yes you don't post too much!!

    Enjoy the duck hunting, I'm heading to elk camp tomorrow evening for about 10 days, can't wait!

    Used to post more training advice, when you get quiet/kennel enough you switch to GDG.

    (LOL) I wish I'd take this quote to heart, I try to keep my posts to a minimum. I only check RTF sparingly, and only post when I feel I may have something to contribute, from personal experience. Perhaps another way to look at something or add to the discussion. Then I leave off and don't touch the thread, give everyone a chance to have their say, check back later. Prevents much brain damage that comes from pointless quarrels and bickering. Still I've learned many a time Quantity does not equate to Quality. Jewels can come from anywhere, a person with no posts might hit the nail correctly. So I hope different people will keep posting and add to the discussion.

    I head to Utah at the end of the Week, 7 days looking for the Big buck, or by the 5th day any buck. Only down side is I'll miss Duck Opener, so I'll have to catchup when I get back. With adventure like that to look forward to. Sure makes the internet seem a tad boring. To everyone heading out, Good Luck on the Hunt.

    So does that mean I need to look up those seven or so and put them on ignore because they have too many post and disagreed with you? Once again I get so confused.

    Dennis, I apologize for intimidating you with my post total but most were done before RTF ceased being fun, these days most of my contributions are informational or supportive.

    And for those long tenured enough to remember Gut stopped by yesterday. We had a nice chat, he still has his real job and is scouting part time for the Orioles.

    I used to have more posts than I do now - a bunch got lost during a janitorial accidental sweep I never offer training advice - I leave that for others. I am also just a GDG type of girl - congratulations, sympathies, etc.

    You really gotta be careful about how high a pedestal you put your method, your accomplishments, your dog on. There's usually someone who's done more, somewhere. And they may have used a different method than you did! Chris Atkinson 2013
