Welcome to Shotem and Caughtem

Welcome to ShotemandCaughtem.com.  A social photo sharing website for the hunting and fishing enthusiast in mind.  Whether it is a trophy buck, a massive tuna, a cool new gun or a day that just din't go as plan, we encourage you to share the photo and the story you have and most importantly have some fun!  The creator's of shotemandcaughtem.com came up with the idea of a social photo sharing site based on what we have been doing for years.  There is nothing more fun to us than bragging about the Alaskan King Salmon we have caught or the beautiful pheasant that we shot to our buddies.  It has festered into a fun way to share the experiences we have had in the great outdoors.  We searched the web and found plenty of forums and walls to post pictures but not one that had a fun, creative way to brag about how well you did on your adventure.  A place where trash talking, bragging, having a conversation and meeting new people with new experiences is a requirement.  A place were you could connect with friends and meet new ones who pride themselves as great hunters or fisherman/woman.

ShotemandCaughtem.com is in its infancy and will be an ever expanding social networking site.  Additions to the site will come regularly as we take the ideas we have in mind to make this site your premier choice as hunters and fisherman/woman.  We will constantly review the website to see what you as users are building in your groups and conversations to make this a fun and exciting place to share your photos and stories.  We wanted to get something started so that our users could help us build the ultimate hunting and fishing website.  So let's talk about what you will find here at shotemandcaughtem.com and what we have built.

 

A Users guide to the Website but we hope it will be easy to use once you see how we have things set up:

Upon logging in to the website and creating a profile you will be directed to our groups home page.  Whether you are here for the hunting (shotem), the fishing(caughtem), the gear or the mishaps we hope you will use this board to learn more about the great outdoors.   Join the groups you want to be involved in and you will be able to leave comments and post pictures to any group you have joined.  Everyone is here to help and brag to everyone else.  Connect with people all over the world that share the same interests you do and the fun part is it is one big community or as private as you want to make it.  There are no boundaries when it comes to knowing someone to find a connection with others who share your common interests.  We are all here to brag and have fun!

Under the profile tab you will be able to edit the look of your profile.  Under the friends tab you can send invites to those you know and those you would like to meet.  Messages between your friends will be kept private between you and who you send it to but what posts to the walls stays in the walls.  To the right of the groups, profile, and friends tabs is your message bell (bell icon), your friends invites button (the silhouette people icon) and your email icon.  To the far right of those is the logout icon.  Just above this are tabs that will lead you to the individual galleries.

 The main Shotem and Caughtem logo at the top left will always direct you back to the home page.  To the right you will notice the frontpage tab which will also take you back to the main page.  The blog will be a place where we post great finds and articles about products, changes to the website and other things you the users have asked us to research.  We hope that you will contact us at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. to let us know how we are doing and what you would like us to learn more about and info you about.

 Once you have entered into one of the groups you will find a share box.  In this box are four tabs.  Status is the pace to leave your comments.  Photos is where you go to upload a photo to the group.  Videos are where you can go to upload a video to the group. Events which is where you can post something happening others may be interested in hearing about.  Before you hit the share button we will point out that there is a public icon with a lock in the left corner under share.  If the lock is open it will post your share to the wall for all the world to see.  If you close the lock only your friends will be able to see your posts so make sure you keep this in mind before posting.

 ShotemandCaughtem.com is first and foremost a social hunting and fishing site.  Because of this we hope that those who have come to share in their love of the great outdoors will respect those who have also come to share.  We also hope that you have the same respect for mother nature to know that our triumphs in the field or on the water are there because of the great lengths laws go to further the conservation of wildlife for future generations.  As such ShotemandCaughtem.com will begin to use part of it's proceeds to further the capabilities of great organizations that help in the preservation of lands and wildlife.  At the end of each year we will post the organizations we were able to help because of your involvement in this site.  So have fun, start posting and check back as we expand the site to include even more sections of the great outdoors!
