13...lots of times, I just see something the perks my interest and read that forum. St. Cloud, Alex, East Central, Rochester, Pikes, Crappies, etc. Not bass or walleye though because those posters get a little uptight.

14. Oh ya and the Ladies forum, because they don't get too nasty when someone asks where they went and what they caught.

Plus the post your bios is interesting.

Those are my must hit when first signed on as of now. During the season changes, my forums and priority forums change also. I kind of linger from there, into anything that seems interesting to me.

Check out the sub forums and regional forums also. You would be amazed at what you can find in these forums.

Wow, some of you must spend a lot of time on this site!

I think I've been missing out by not reading some of the forums you have listed. I guess my list will most likely grow smile

Open water or ice fishing depending on time of the year.

Walleye and perch

Wisc

BWCA

East central lakes

metro

Mille Lacs

Mississippi pools

St. Croix

and the hunting forums and the expert info and the sponsor info and the rod building and the trout forum and................well, I spend entirely too much time on here.

The one thing I can say, is all of the FM folks I have met on the water or through the forums have been quality individuals, willing to lend a hand, to help out, even to folks they don't know firsthand. The tips and knowledge that is shared is great and there isn't alot of griping or ripping of folks. Like a former poster said, my name is Tunrevir, I am a FMaholic. Thanks for a great site folks!

    • Anyone still at it?   not sure that i will get Isaac out anymore, will still ask these last few days.   Good luck everyone.
    • Haha, sounds like you have a good head on your shoulders and great perspective, Borch.  Plus, I think it's good to be upset about missing!  It motivates a guy to take more selective shots and make better shots.  My shot selection was ok, but my execution was not good.  I made a good shot at a stationary target, but the target was walking.  D-U-M, dumb!!!  Such is life!  Next year Morgan and I will shoot turkeys (as long as I can still get her out there).  
    • From what I read the idiot did not tell anybody....was asked to play in the World's and declined saying his wrists hurt so they made him go in and found the torn tendons...what a duffus.
    • It reminds me if the first year I took my son turkey hunting.  He had several close calls but didn't get a bird.  He was upset.  I said, "Why are you upset?  We got to hunt together for several days and had several exciting encounters.  If you shot one the first day we would have missed all that fun together"  He thought about it for a while and he smiled.  The older I get, the less its about the kill.  Reframing what I thought success was has added to my hunts.  Now, if I could get less upset when I miss a bird I'd have it all figured out.  
    • Excellent.  Nicely done.
    • You got it, Borch!  I was disappointed with how the season ended, but you're definitely right!  I also learned a trick this year- cards!  Morgan really enjoyed playing cards with me in the blind.  It was a good way to pass the time and we enjoyed it quite a bit.  We had a great season together and enjoyed it a ton!     That last encounter we had was really something!  I'm convinced the worst thing birds can do to a bowhunter is to come in to the deeks is stand there and stare.  I'd rather they hung up and didn't come in or did pretty much anything but that.  It makes it virtually impossible to get a bow drawn!  The turkey was at about 5 yards, because I knew we I needed one close for Morgan.  However, at five yards and staring directly in the direction of the blind, she was smart to not try to draw.  That dang bird stood there for two full minutes and didn't move a muscle.  Morgan had a smile from ear to ear and at one point told me "I was so excited and my heart was pounding so hard I thought I might die!"     It would have been a slam dunk with her crossbow, but she wanted to get one with a vertical bow.  I'm proud of her for sticking with it and she said "I'm just fine with not shooting one, Dad."  I'm glad she's ok with that.  I wish I was more ok with it...  but, that's hunting!  
    • Sounds like he is going to bring "fire" to the team haha.  Hoping he can come up with something to do with all the aging players who aren't living up to their contracts.     Also heard that Coyle played the last 2 months with torn ligaments in his wrists.  Going in for surgery.  Kind of an eye opener really, Coyle with torn wrist ligaments is better than anything they could've moved up that is healthy?  Uh oh....
    • Hey, it's all good. Morgan and you spending time together in the outdoors and getting a close encounter is what it's all about.     Sometimes the birds win and we simply run out of time.
