The bond of Hunting and Fishing Partners

Friendships come from those who Hunt and Fish together Friendships come from those who Hunt and Fish together

A lifelong bond between those who Hunt and Fish

We at Shotem and Caughtem recently found out that one of our closest friends is moving to another state for work and it got us thinking.  The bond between those who enjoy the great outdoors with one another.  The bond created amongst those who we fish and hunt with that are hard to come by and replace.  The time spent in the great outdoors with those who have the same passion can create some of the funniest stories, greatest moments of accomplishment and an amazing relationship.  We don't really know how to explain it, but one thing is for sure, there is no other relationship in the world like the one you have with your hunting and fishing buddy. There is a bond there that can never be broken. You could not see or speak to him/her for years and know exactly the right words when it comes time to say them. You have an understanding between each other about life that never has to be spoken, but yet is always understood.

A Social Network dedicated to keeping and preserving the outdoor bond

It is why we started this website.  The bond of trash talking, taunting one another with the biggest racks, catches and the most birds is what gave us the idea for the website.  The mishaps section came from some of our funniest memories from the field and water.  For the better part of two decades we can not remember being in the field without one another.  The move to another state will most definitely put a distance between the times we head out into the great outdoors with one another.  Those times will definitely be missed.

However, now that we almost have the app completed we will always have Shotem and Caughtem.  A place to tag one another, brag and share our stories from a far.  It will give us new opportunities to hunt and fish and create new stories.  It is what we are all about.  That bond and stories now have a new place to call home.  We even make it easier to connect with one another with individual profile names such as www.shotemandcaughtem.com/chauncey

Yes it is time for the next chapter in our stories with one another.  Though the time we spend together in the outdoors will become smaller, we will no doubt never forget the time we have had nor the great times ahead.  Good luck and all the best.  Can't wait to write our next chapter together!
