That's why you can NEVER be to sure and that's why I always go armed in the woods! You just NEVER know when a sabretooth buck might decide you look mighty tasty...

Every time you post, it's actually displaying 45min - 1 hour before the ACTUAL time you posted.

Default Deer as predators?

We have all probably seen the video of a deer eating a bird and wondered why in the world the deer would do that. I personally thought it just aggravated the deer enough or something. I read this article this morning that sheds a little bit of light on why deer would actually do this. Article

That's the weird part about it.

All timestamps for all posts that are displayed are in my timezone (central) because that's the option that I have selected.

The fact that yours are timestamped about 50 or so minutes before EVERYONE else... means that you are basically posting "in the past" as far as Huntingnet.com is concerned.
