Shotem And Caughtem Profile

We at Shotem and Caughtem have talked a little bit about the new profile URL setup on the website.  We hope that people who are already members have started to take advantage of what this option will help them accomplish.  However, if you are new to Shotem and Caughtem we thought we might highlight some things that might be of benefit to our new members as a way of opening new advertising and conversation portals on the site.  

Recently one of our new members Montana Outdoor Gear began to take advantage of a small part of what Shotem and Caughtem was built around and we hope others follow suite.  They can begin to give there own reviews and pricing for their products in the gear section and expand on things you might not find on their site.  They can link people to their extra bonus material by just letting others know about their profile www.shotemandcaughtem.com/montana_outdoor_gear.  

Hunting and Fishing outfitters will also be able to expand their advetising as they will be able to take photos of people on their adventures and have a running gallery of their accomplishments.  They too will be able to direct traffic to their own operations while expanding on things they might not have the ability to do currently on their own website.

Finally individuals will be able to brag about their own adventures in the field by letting friends and family know about their profiles.  You are able to creat your own photo galleries within your profile so that you always have a copy of your hunting and fishing photos.  No more searching through disks, hard drives etc. when people ask how your last adventure turned out.

All these things are especially important as many people can find just hunting and fishing gear, photos and outdoor lovers.  No more sifting through tons of profiles trying to find people interested in these great sports.  The only people you will find on Shotem and Caughtem are those who love to hunt and fish.  Most outdoorsman/woman do both anyway.  You will find very few who do not have at least an interest in both even if they don't participate.

Let us know if you have any questions or want to know more in the comment section below or build a profile and start bragging by providing us with your own hunting and fishing website right here on Shotem and Caughtem.

We at Shotem and Caughtem always get a little bit on edge when people start looking into matters with surveys regarding hunting information.  Sure every year we tell the government how many animals we have procured throughout the year however, when a survey like the one we are going to talk to you about below comes along we tend to watch the hair stand up on our back.  Stakes get even higher when the subject is Dove Hunting.  We would love to get your opinion on the subject in the comment section below.  Should the discussion get good we might even create it's very on section in our discussion forum.

The National Dove Hunter Survey, a cooperative effort by the state fish and wildlife agencies, all four flyway councils, and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (Service) will ask dove hunters from across the U.S. to share their experiences and opinions about dove hunting.

The National Dove Hunter Survey is scheduled to begin this month, and will be compiled by the end of 2013. Randomly selected hunters can expect to receive questionnaires in the mail beginning this week.

Survey questions will focus on hunter characteristics, time spent hunting, perceived constraints to hunting, and hunter’s thoughts about potential effects of spent lead from hunting ammunition on mourning doves and other wildlife.

“There are more than one million dove hunters in the United States. This survey will encompass all regions of the country and will give us an excellent picture of hunter opinions and needs.” says Dr. Ken Richkus of the Service’s Population and Habitat Assessment Branch. “The Service and the states want to make sure we use the best science-based information for the management and conservation of our migratory bird resources and take hunter opinions and preferences into account whenever possible.”

Texas Parks and Wildlife Department supports these survey efforts and request that all selected hunters please return their responses so the agency may better address questions regarding dove hunting in the future. Approximately 250,000 mourning dove hunters harvest 5 million mourning doves on an annual basis in Texas – making Texas the leader in both the number of hunters and harvest in the United States.
