Our world and our lives have certainly been changed because of the world wide virus pandemic. I have noticed on here a lot more friction and controversy on some issues.
I believe that part of that has been caused by those of us that are used to being out and about,spending more time at home and more time in front of our computers.
It has been hard on everyone, I think that it may be time for us to stop and think about what we are typing before we hit that enter button.
Those of us on here are first and foremost --Trappers.We are one of the smallest groups of sports men and women on earth.We are also one of the most vulnerable groups.
The next time you lose your temper with another poster on here,stop and reflect on your reply.Fighting amongst each other is the last thing we need.We have more than enough people and groups that want to do away with us . Without fighting amongst ourselves.Fight those against us--not out brothers and sisters.
That said and done---I want to wish everyone Good Health. Be thankful for your friends and family.Let them know how you feel and how much you appreciate them.
To every trapper on this forum,thank you for being here,thank you for your friendship,thank you for your comradeship.
May God Bless all of you.Happy Easter to one and all.And thank you Paul Dobbins,for putting up with us.
Tom

10. ^ with the way this world is turning we all need to work together and set our petty differences aside. Don't know how long this current situation will last or what the future holds so as I have said to my kids and to my employees ( be nice) God bless.
Happy Easter to you sir and everyone on here.

X2.... we should be more about helping each other in these times as we are a small normally tight knit community. We should be helping those getting more involved into food prep and trapping/catching meat.

Some very good comments !The founding fathers of this great country had some very strong differences with each other . They wisely put those personal differences aside and focused on the task at hand .The founding of the United States of America . While not perfect ; their efforts have last 240 plus years . . We can focus on our common goals even if we just agree to disagree about some things

You have a good point Bogmaster, but I don't take the disagreements too seriously. Many of us like to discuss and argue over topics, and enjoy it very much. It might get a little heated at times, but we get over it. The thing is, I think anyone on this forum would come to the aid of any other member without hesitation if needed. As you said, we are all trappers, and that truly means something to most of us.

I keep hearing on the tv and radio " we are all in this together!" I wish they wouldn't say "we" because I don't really support most of the nonsense that is going on.

Good post, Tom. I always see an uptick of the adversity on here after season is over and people have more time on their hands. I agree, there is a core group on here that loves to argue over every little thing. I'm not that way, and If I say something and someone disagrees with it, I usually just let it go. No sense in upsetting the applecart just to make a point!

I agree. However there are too many different personalities on here for that to change. It all comes down to morals & values. These are what defines a person. Negative posts say more about the poster than who it was directed at.
