What does BUMP mean ?

Unread threads are listed in order from most recent to older. So if you write a new post in your own thread (classified thread in this instance) you are "bump"ing it back up to the top of the list of threads to be seen.

A "reminder" bump of classified rules.
:fire.:

" In today's instant gratification society, more and more pressure revolves around success and the measurement of one's prowess as a hunter by inches on a score chart or field photos produced on social media. Don't fall into the trap. Hunting is-and always will be- about the hunt, the adventure, the views, and time spent with close friends and family. " Ryan Hatfield

Go to your profile.
Under "profile info" find your classified ad.  Modify it from there.
The modify button will be on the upper-middle right side of the screen.

Your post might be old enough that the modify option is no longer there.

May not be able to edit the post. Seems that the forum software has changed to where there is now a limit as to how long you can edit a post. :twocents:
May I always be the kind of person my dog thinks I am.
