Yes. The link was removed. It's an everyday process. Lot's of people register just to post a link back to their site and never return. Most links have nothing to do with hunting. Those accounts and posts are deleted on a daily basis.
We use to maintain a links page to sites that are predominantly coyote hunting oriented with a link in return. But, vetting a site before it's posted and monitoring the site afterward became too time consuming.
That said, we no longer exchange links.
What you do in the dark will someday come to light.
