Not at all. Site interactivity slows in the office season, as you know, and all the lodge folks are glued to Facebook it seems.
Readership and page views continue to grow and Issue #23 is already in the works.
All is good on the WFC front.

Calls: Haydel DR-85 is an inexpensive, easy blowing double reed duck call that will always hang on my lanyard. It’s a great starter priced call that can sweet talk ducks as well as calls 10-times the price. For goose calls — skip the easy blowing flutes and find a short-reed call to learn on. The RNT Quackhead goose calls are a good starter call at great prices.
Decoy Paint: Parker Coatings or Flambeau kits are both nice and priced well. As for numbers, depends on the area and time of year. Three dozen is a great start. Eventually you’ll find that you can never have enough decoys.

That was a fun post on FB.
As much as the world has flocked to Facebook, for FREE, convenient, social tools, it will never substitute what WFC was built on:
1) The ability to build friendship outside your normal circle of friends.
2) You don’t sell your soul to data warehouses when you use our service.February 20, 2015 at 3:25 pm #8979
Hunting here in Northern Illinois we don’t have scary snakes. No gators. No sharks. No bears. No mountain lions. With the exception of hypothermia, the biggest danger is one’s own stupidity. 🙂February 17, 2015 at 3:43 pm #8966
Tasty even!January 15, 2015 at 11:31 am #8870
Yeah it blew up on Sunday. Never a shortage of things to fix. UghOctober 9, 2014 at 1:25 pm #8619
So you’re saying as a result of knowing friends through WFC you saved $50 as well?

Counting the days here. 5 days of rain in the coming forecast. That has me stoked.September 30, 2014 at 3:15 pm #8563
Jc — Ever since you showed up, I’ve been seeing “I date Asai” ads on the site from google. What did you do?September 30, 2014 at 2:32 pm #8561
Wasn’t there a scene like that in Breaking Bad?
dern country folk. 😛September 30, 2014 at 10:51 am #8427
Firearms investment commodities?
Cough… Freedom Group, cough, Cerberus Capital Management.. cough cough.
I think the changes in the industry are representative of manufacturers becoming a Wall Street managed mega corporation.September 30, 2014 at 10:30 am #8426
JC — heard you teamed up with Lady Gaga to protest the use of duck water for fracking in CA. I thought you only liked older women?September 15, 2014 at 1:08 pm #8348
Nice. Teal hunting here was slow. The boys got a few but nothing to speak of.
Water at our swamp is down again — very surprising for all the rain we’ve had. The water table for our bottoms has changed drastically ever since they built a new bridge down stream of us — the water seems to empty much faster out of the creek and surrounding marsh areas.August 18, 2014 at 11:24 am #8264
Facebook / social media has exponentially consumed online participation time.
The advantage Waterfowler.com still offers over social media is an opportunity to meet folks outside your small cycle of friends and develop new ones.
On FB — I see all the old WFC Old Timers, who met and have become life long friends because of the diversity we offer.
Thankfully, during the season most get sick of the fear-mongering news media that makes your blood boil (and poisons Facebook walls) and they return to their happy place — duck hunting and Waterfowler.com

What, nobody is going to man up about that amazing night on the trapeze with the 4 / 4.9 girl?

Picks up the last week of August, like clock work, every year since 1997 — but ya, the bulk of you guys have those young kids now and have entered the “hunt less” years of your lives.
I’m happy to be at stage two — where they put out and pick up the decoys 🙂

Good looking dogs. Thanks for posting.
I see you figured out images. Just post the “URL/link” to the image. Our system adds all the tags etc…July 28, 2014 at 3:53 pm #8194
Bill — glad you caught that early.
Speaking of sickness — my son has the fever to go hunt big game in Montana.
Can I put you two in touch so you can give him some solid advice and where/how?
Let me know

As the off-season winds to a close, the action heats up here. I look forward to reading your hunting reports this season.
