    Mourning Doves-- NEW YORK- Should Have A Hunting Season..

    I think you are right about that. I posted up this Thread because that was what Mike Rossi was trying to get done. A Dove Season in New York.

    WHO'S WHO HERE NOW??????

    Rossi was Banned. His Threads were very interesting. He did write on Mourning Doves alot. He was the driving force in trying to get a Dove Season in place.

    Poor Mike Rossi suffered mightily also. I don't think he should have been Banned. One member here in particular tossed ( Dirt) on him without end.

    I surely know all about that! That is one of the main reasons that plenty of members who would like to take a shot at posting a Thread-- don't.

    Indeed, I shall tell you. Like many people, I had a Dream to self Publish a book. Having over 40 or so Written Journals on Turkey Hunting as well as many hundreds of Photos taken with a Kodak throw away camera, I was able to bring even more memories flooding back when, I combined the two. I wrote all 4 manuscripts totally by hand and Pen. Since, I was going to go the ( Self Publish) route- everything was totally on me from proof reading ,etc. Next step was to talk to a friend who works at a library. Her daughter knew exactly what to do as far as getting my manuscript burned on a Disc in the proper format. Taking that Disc to a Publisher-- Royal Fireworks in Unionville and after some meetings , my 4 books were published from 2011 to around 2015. Of course, I paid the Daughter of the Library worker friend of mine and the Publisher of course. I never had more then 250 published of the 4 books. Did, I make any money? No, I lost money on all 4 books. My personal dream was acheived though. I sold many of the books through Midwestturkeycall.com . To have one of my books presented below the Master himself - Ray Eye with one of his books was a true honor! Jim Casada told me that since, I had so few published that they in 25 years or so could be worth plenty as long as, I just signed my name. I also got lucky with a guy from Wisconsin who wanted to buy plenty of what, I had left. Jim Casada also told me to sign and put away at least 5 or 10 of each in a Ammo can. Which, I did. I also made sure that, I got my Discs back from the Publisher. In this day and age though--- most people don't open books. It is usually work related on a computer and Social Media- like this site. I would say most people could write a book. It just requires plenty of time,thought and alot of steps.

    I don't agree with Belo this time. I remember GrowAlot having well thought out Threads. Indeed her Threads covered many different Topics. I looked forward to reading them.

    Hopefully they won't. But when someone assumes your identity and posts off the wall replys on many Threads- the possibility of him stepping over the line without Reflecting is very real. Imagine my surprise when, I first saw my name with a Gobbler Foot emblem. It's funny unless it happens to you. Either, I bring in a ton of Guest views or am entertaining here-- but the Moderator would not push the Ban Button on me when, I asked. Glad the 30 days is about up.
