I don't know guys. There's a large portion of hunters that have made a significant effort recently to poise hunters in general as folks that have respect and admiration for all wildlife, and we hunt to feed our families and to aid in conservation of all species, not gloating and bragging about killing animals or making them suffer. That point of view can gain a foothold, it has helped me in discussions with many non/anti-hunters. Guys that talk about poisoning or tossing sponges or meat wrapped trebles out give us all a big fat black eye and erase any traction that might have been gained.

I'll be the first one to buy a wolf tag in WA if possible, and I buy them every year in Idaho. I chase bears, killed my share of coyotes, and I plan on chasing cats this winter as well, so don't dare call me a predator lover. It all has to be done on the up and up though.
I hunt, therefore I am.... I fish, therefore I lie.

I've said before and I'll say it again.  The anonymity this site allows breeds this type of discussion.  I truly believe if HuntWA required everyone to use their real names the amount of trash talking and unhelpful bantar would decrease significantly. Say what you mean, mean what you say, and stand up proud about saying it.  Don't hide behind the cloak of the internet and your fake names.  Let's have quality discussions that support the hunting community, our traditions, our way of life.  All this trash talk about breaking laws destroys the very fabric that defines us as a community bound by ethics.  It paints everyone of us as blood thirsty, apathetic barbarians, not conservationists.
Stop giving the Humane Society and PETA future ammo to shoot us down with.

Great topic OP (whoever you are).

Im moving closer all the time to wishing this site required real names to be posted. I don't even remember if I needed to enter my name to sign up but it would cut down on some of the nonsense.

What vetting would be done to verify the names being given are in fact real names? 

No way to ensure that it would be any different, from now.

Using your real name would be the dumbest move ever.  Post a picture of a cougar you harvest.. have your house fire bombed next week by some animal rights activist  Not thought out clearly..
When you align yourself with people who beat up grandma's with strollers your opinions are from that of a psychopath. Jaded and worthless..

I don't recall any forum I've ever signed up for using real names. Anti-hunters and animal rights freakos with an axe to grind would have a field day harassing members. All due respects, I think it's a horrible idea to use real names.

It's simple: When someone posts an illegal activity or expresses support for same, the post is taken down and that thread is reminded of the forum policy. If one person violates the policy even after several PM warnings, they're suspended. More times? Removed permanently.

Well said Brad and 7mm!
My interpretation of the rules are open to interpretation.

I've got a FB account, they make people use their real names and I don't see where it causes a whole lot of restraint :dunno:
A strong body makes the mind strong.  As to the species of exercises, I advise the gun. While this gives moderate exercise to the body, it gives boldness, enterprise and independence to the mind. Games played with the ball and others of that nature are too violent for the body and stamp no character on the mind. Let your gun therefore be your constant companion of your walks.

They don't make you use your real name on Facebook.  You cant use whatever name you want.

I certainly don't post things on Facebook which would be considered controversial because many of my customers are friends, and I only post to friends, not the public, because I don't want the crazies. Forums are different and normally address specific areas of interest. That's why anonymity is important because groups like DOW search for hunting groups to call out the topics and members.

No I get that, and maybe I misread what you were saying. Earlier today there were a couple posts on here that were deleted from a guy suggesting using poison meatballs to deal with the wolves. I thought that's what you were referring to. My bad.

Not correct, just provide a name and a date of birth, and be anyone you want to be.
