1. Watch Your Under-Caliber Stories: Please don't post personal or news stories about the shooting a grizzly bear or a moose with a Glock from 120 yards unless it's in self-defense or your only alternative. And please, no can I hunt deer with my 9mm Glock. You shouldn't. We certainly don't want to give any inexperienced hunters or campers the wrong impression or encourage unsafe practices. We want to promote lawful, humane, and ethical hunting here at GT/HFC. Take your best shot with your best gun and drop that animal! 2. Avoid The Illegal: As to camping and fishing, please refrain from stories of illegal dumping, catching over limit or under size, illegal drinking, and the like. Again, HFC is for safe and responsible conduct. Please refrain from posting stories or pictures of illegal hunting acts, poaching, hunting animals out of season, without a license, illegal caliber usage, hunting while intoxicated, etc. 3. No Animal or Human Cruelty: Cruelty to animals will also not be tolerated. Respect for nature, animals, and our harvests are expected. 4. No Disturbing or Overly Gross Pictures: Please do not post or link to any pictures, graphics, or images that could offend another person’s sensibilities, religion, their wife, girlfriend, or their child. While this is a forum discussing and showing your harvested animals, it is not acceptable to show any graphic photographs of anything mutilated. It is never acceptable to show human remains as they are desecrated. 5. Avoid Telling Those Really Unbelievable Stories: If a story sounds to incredible to be true, it probably is false. If someone is talking about a 2,000 pound grizzly bear that was 13 feet tall and ate two humans, please verify the story so we don’t keep the chain going. Before posting a wild story, please research it and make sure it’s pretty accurate. Those types of posts tend to illicit confrontation, conflict, and name calling. All things to be avoided. HERE'S WHAT YOU CAN DO: 6. You can tell some big fish and big buck stories. Just remember, your credibility will take a hit. Therefore, pictures will protect you. And there is nothing better than a good hunting story with some buck fever thrown in. Ask about gun selection for your game. Pass along some great recipes for our harvest. Show your kids or your wife hunting. Can help others get their spouses into the sport. 7. Please feel free to post your fishing, camping, hiking, RV, or harvest pictures. But let's keep the blood and guts images to ourselves. Let's just make sure it's appropriate for almost all eyes. Little kids do look over our shoulders at times. 8. Civility is lacking in today's society. Not here. Let's be civil to each other - even if the other poster doesn't deserve that courtesy. 9. Share your experiences, tips, and enjoy!
