Default I thought site was totally dead





I was no longer checking the site much as I thought the site was totally dead as I saw no posts on the lodge. I realized that many are posting on the decoy giveaway thread...I'm guessing it must be many topics, from the interesting to the inane. From what I saw of postings there today, I sure won't bother to checking it again. I sure don't care to crawl thru posts about the weather or work to find one post that might be interesting.
It's too bad, as this used to be an interesting site.

I think it is just normal summertime activity, Riverrat. We can liven things up and make it interesting here and argue about something. That always sparks activity.
What do you think of season dates? Drive a blue dodge? Bust roost ponds? Sell tumbleweed? Poach? Meet up to fight? You a man posing as a girl? Want to have a on line duck calling contest?

Thanks for the contribution on making this site "more" interesting Riverrat, and thanks for letting us know you aren't coming back onto this website. Your uninteresting post is exactly what you are complaining about. lol Happy Trails!

only MOSTLY dead. There's a big difference between mostly dead and all dead. Mostly dead is slightly alive. With all dead, well, with all dead there's usually only one thing you can do.

Glad my newbie comments put some life back into this site! lol
My intentions were not to frustrate any of the website elders, I just found the comment/post to be pretty ironic.

I guess my thought is if there something particular you want to discuss start a thread.
I'm sure things will start to liven up soon.
