It really was something of a golden age for this site to have a healthy population of guys who were early Boomers or even older than that, but had figured out how to use a forum.
It does not puzzle me that many of them are gone, but what does puzzle me is the absence of quite a few younger members (not as young as me) who would now be in their 30s or 40s.
I guess catch-all forums generally ceased being as hot---I even see a lot of regional or state hunting forums have the bulk of their threads pre-2013. Most guys probably read a relevant thread after it pops up in a search engine like it's the Cabela's reviews page, without signing up for an account to ask a similar question, themselves. It seems very specific forums dedicated to say, AR-15s, concealed carry, or something are where there's still some vibrancy.
