Default Why do you come here?

Techinically speaking, why do each and every one of you come here? I am genuinely curious and there seems to be alot of negative vibes lately on various posts which led me to question specifically why I come to this forum.

Personally, I enjoy sharing information related to the technical aspects of archery and its equipment with my peers. I believe that the exchange of this information helps to enhance the experience that each one of us gains from participating in the various archery activities.

So, why do you come to this forum and participate...or not?

Well since I stumbled on it four or so years ago it's been nothing but a learning experience with facts and opinions from accross the country on anything and everything. I seriously beleave it brought my hunting to a new level. Although lately I've seen some ugly faces, most of the guys and gals on this board are first rate!

Good post. I personally come here because as time goes on, I'm more and more interested in bowhunting and therefore want to learn more about my weapon. It's also a way to get valuable information about products that I don't either have the time or the resources to go and research and use on my own. I can't afford to go and and buy 10 bows/sights/rests/releases etc... to see what is the absolute best. Sure I can go out and shoot some bows, but it ulitmately comes down to taking a chance on what you buy and hope it works well for him/her for the next 5, 6, 7 or so years. Whether if some type of product is good, bad, fails under certain situations etc... What people like....what they don't. Overall, it's a great tool for the novice hunter/3D shooter to use to get better in regards to equipment or shooting form. Sure there are penial sword fights with some of the fellas on their equipment, but I just overlook those. Overall....great site for advice, specific terminolgy and basically everything that goes into it all...bows that is.

Because ASP code is incredibly boring and this spices up the work day! Also alot of good info once you wade through ther sea of opinions.

And.......because I'm sitting here watching my 4 year old pick up her toys while I put off sweeping the rugs........

Mainly because I am a complete archery addict......and can't get enough information !

And I am originally from Alabama....and had many friend's to shoot with,talk/argue with about equipment, a great pro shop to go to (Frank Carr's if any of you know him), 3D shoots, spot tournaments, etc. !

I moved up here 2 years ago and have had pretty much ....nobody to shoot with, talk to about archery, and no events/tournaments to attend ! There is a small shop here and the tech guy is great ! Started getting to know them better lately , but my main form of communication with people that love the sport as much or better than me......has been here on the forum !

And for that I owe all of you a big THANKS !!!!

Why do I come here? Because we talk about archery! And for me, that's reason enough.

CBM,

I meant to mention it to you earlier, but the shop in Summerton (exit 108 on I-95) is starting a club and will have regular 3-d shoots whenever it gets rolling. I'm going to call the guy today and get an update, but it should be really fun, laid back, and not overly competitive. I hope it wont be too competitive, because just getting to shoot once every 3 or 4 week, I'll be happy if I can keep all my arrow in targets. They will probably run it ASA, but I will probaly just shoot my hunting set up which will be faster and just not keep score. Let me know if you are interested.

I enjoy getting the opinions of other archers. Someone I can ask questions. Yep some comments you have to take with a grain of salt!

But if you read a lot of posts, you begin to form an opinion of many of the replies, and kinda decide who is genuinely knows what they are talking about and if they are sincere in trying to help you, and then take the others with a grain of salt.

I really enjoy coming here!!!
