    Certainly is a stalking site for stalkers who sometimes encouter illnesses and medical conditions that effect their ability to carry out their favourite past time. These guys get a great deal of support from their SD mates which must help with their recovery.
    All part of the SD family I suppose. Perhaps some day when your knees need replaced it will be good to learn that others have had this op and that your stalking days are not over.
    Apart from that IMO when out stalking I talk about more than just rifles, deer, dogs etc General discussion should be much akin to that.

    When trying to encourage people to join, I described SD as a friendly forum about stalking. Friendly comes first - it was noticeably less so a while back and drove a lot of people away.

    I see the stalking as a theme rather than a tenet.

    For me personally, I wouldn't necessarily broadcast illness - with the way I am just now there isn't the bandwith - but very much each to their own and does reflect this is a social forum. Its about mutual support as Gazza notes, and see nothing wrong with that.

    Hear hear. I have made some very very good friends off this site who have been very supportive through a very difficult and traumatic year for me. I enjoy their company and also enjoy seeing them stalk on my leases and enjoying themselves.

    No dissrespect but as your sign in name is Chill, perhaps it might be good if you did CHILL!!! and enjoy the site for what it stands for.

    Broke a tooth 3 weeks ago, broke another last night. While I don't expect any sympathy for such trivial thing, if it was something that was in anyway life changing, it's nice when people are supportive and wish you well.

    Many of these guys are our pals - - we may never have met, but we are on much the same wavelength regarding our sport. We have a good bit of banter and learn a lot from each other. If we can't give a wee bit of support when they are ill or just feeling a bit down for whatever reason it'll be a sad day.

    Not my thing but if it helps someone, why not? - so long as it's in General Discussion as I don't want to be surprised by R-D's penis in Equipment...
