  3. I'm not a real fan of Northern MN winter either. I was just down south for 2 weeks enjoying the weather. Go back for another week+ the day after Christmas.
  4. It looks like most of the people checking in and not returning are the younger crowd? Just like the younger crowd I deal with at work they want the benefits but don’t want to put in the work. They’re looking for the spot that the fish are biting or where the big buck roams and go to that spot rather than trying to figure it out on there own. And the older crowd isn’t gonna give up those spots because of it. Thus less traffic on the site?
  5. Yesterday
  6. Smoked deviled eggs. Been doing them for 35 years and always good. I have a Bradley also and it works sweet. No need to turn the oven on. Just use the burner for the pucks. 2 is plenty but 3 better. then just devil them with whatever you like.
  7. Smoked chicken wings. I like the full wing (as pictured). I use yellow mustard as the glue and then sprinkle liberally with Montreal Chicken seasoning. Smoke at 220 - 250 for 1 1/2 - 2 hrs. You can make them in advance. Bag and keep in the refrigerator. When you're ready to serve, warm them up on the grill.
  8. Cheesey smoked meatballs phenomenal smokingmeat.com
  9. Trying to bring a forum back to the glory days with the same methods used 20 years ago is like trying to bring back video stores.
  10. This year I am taking the entire week of Christmas off so I’m going to have time to make some extra good apps. Normally for Christmas Eve we do some grazing on apps and make steaks. What is the best smoked app you’ve made? Right now I’ve got some cheese that I smoked resting and plan to make smoked armadillo eggs with some venison sausage. I’ve done a fatty before which is always good. I’ve got a pellet grill and Bradley smoker.
  11. I asked before but is there no way to get the companies like Clam, Vexilar, Marcum etc to get their pros on here posting like they used to? Social media influencers are an important part of any site on Facebook , Instagram etc and of course the companies are good at planting their soldiers on the front lines and getting their product out to the masses. This is used to be the case on this site and others so is there any way to bring that back? It seems that scaling back the sheer volume of sub forums and then getting new products and methods discussed is the best way to build the base back.
  12. The beauty is that facebook has limited the guides and outfitters reach. They can get the same 100 to 300 people over and over or pay for advertising and ad reach is expensive on fb. Do you think infomercial is better than noinfo?
  13. Yeah, I was kind of replying to Duff who every year leaves this winter waste land to go play on the sand!
  14. You defend the military like Nick defends the left, not that I expected anything different. The problem is the military is just a total train wreck these days, they can't ride those WW2 coattails forever.
  15. Drinking a cold beer or a pina colada on a nice beach or island during the winter is not for everyone. I mange to suffer through the boredom.
  16. In the heyday of forums the best ones had a lot of participation from guides, outfitters, pro fishermen and other experts. They also seemed to be the 1st to leave as facebook replaced forums as the place to exchange info. It would be great if you could get these people to come back and share their experience and knowledge. The only downside is sometimes posts from these sources can feel more like an infomercial than a discussion.
  17. Another thing that may help gather more Content feedback is to pin at the top of FM & HSO a New Visitors questionnaire of their visit that may be only you or staff have access to view replies. The answers to new membership may very well come from without and not from within.
  18. I'm considering inviting a bunch of Guides, Outfitters and Home & Garden Professionals to join. Provide information in exchange for linking out to their business. As we do this I would appreciate a warm welcome to them.
