Hello Guys, I wanted to take a moment, more than a moment, to make an announcement here that will take effect immediately.
I have been in talks with Shane, YoungGun, regarding the site here at Wisconsin Coyote Hunters and it's future. Shane and I put together the site with the thought that Shane would be able to, and have the time, to develop the domain into something larger in time.
As most of you who have been around for a while realize, this development hasnt taken place. This is not due to lack of interest on Shanes part. Of that I can assure each member. He has nothing but the best interest for the site. Regrettably it is due to lack of time which is definately needed to develop and improve any website. With that in mind we came to the agreement that I would obtain the majority of control with Shane remaining on as a moderator, administrator, and a spokesman for the club that has been created. The site itself will remain as Wisconsin Coyote Hunters but will now become part of the Water and Woods network. Let me explain a bit further and give some outlook on the future.
I personally own all of the websites contained within the network. All of these sites are used to interlink one another. All of the sites are also in the interest of the outdoors such as Deer Hunting, Turkey Hunting, Boating, Fishing, and now Varmint Hunting. What we do is use each site to help promote the other for more exposure. This will, beyond a doubt, work to the advantage of this site as well as our other websites as we move traffic in between websites.
Now, nothing you see here will be deleted. The forum and the photo areas will remain intact. What will change is the look of the site and of course some added content and, in time, you will see new members joining as we begin to promote the site to a broader audience.
Some of the new additions we are looking at will be a shopping area with Varmint calls, ammo, videos, books, etc. We have a strong affiliation with Cabelas and many other manufacturers that will allow us to bring you their entire inventory if we choose to do so. What else you will see are ads appearing on the site. These will be mainly our own ads from the network but may include purchased advertising as well. Nothing off-base or intrusive is allowed and we are extremely concerned with load times for the site. In short we believe most members and visitors will find the ads useful if in fact your outdoors includes any types of hunting, boating, or fishing.
Although I am kicking around a lot of ideas at the moment, I'd like to hear any suggestions you may have. Also any concerns may be posted as well. We have nothing to hide and I am more than happy to answer anything openly here for everyone to view.
With that in mind, sorry about the long post but, lets hear it. I'm looking forward to blasting forward and getting down to some serious work!
What you do in the dark will someday come to light.
