    This is a copy of the agreement everyone here agreed to when they signed up on these forums:

    Forum Rules

    Registration to this forum is free! We do insist that you abide by the rules and policies detailed below. If you agree to the terms, please check the 'I agree' checkbox and press the 'Register' button below.

    Although the administrators and moderators of will attempt to keep all objectionable
    messages off this forum, it is impossible for us to review all messages. All messages express the views of
    the author, and neither the owners of WisconsinOutdoorsman, nor Jelsoft Enterprises Ltd. (developers of vBulletin)
    will be held responsible for the content of any message.

    By agreeing to these rules, you warrant that you will not post any messages that are obscene, vulgar, sexually-orientated, hateful, threatening, or otherwise violative of any laws.

    The owners of reserve the right to remove, edit, move or close any thread for any reason.

    1. Rudeness to other members and especially sponsors will not be tolerated. Difference of opinion is fine and is to be expected but out-right nasty rude exchange will not be tolerated and don't be surprised when they are promptly deleted.

    2. Any post that has racial overtones will be promptly deleted and that user who made it considered for removal.

    3. This is a family site. We have male and female members of all ages. I expect that your posts recognize this fact. Any post that involves sexually objectionable language or content will be deleted, and the poster will receive a strike. It is the judgment call of the Administrators and Moderators as to what constitutes objectionable, so if you are unsure whether or not your post is appropriate for a family audience, do not post it.

    4. The editors of this site may edit posts at any time.

    5. Any post that is intentionally made to degrade or disrupt the flow of the thread and/or posts that (in the opinion of the moderating staff) are meant to be or are malicious in content will result in a official warning. Trolls will be promptly removed.

    6. Personal conflicts and grudges that have occurred among members outside of this site should stay that way. Keep it off the site. This is supposed to be a positive place for thoughts about the outdoors, not a soap opera.

    7. Any user of these boards including moderators will be permanently banned upon receiving three warnings (strikes) as determined from the collective moderation staff.

    We still maintain the right to ban anyone immediately, no questions asked, but to date have done this very sparingly and have never taken this action (without warnings) with an established user.

    8. All posts made within the forums become the property of LLC (the posts themselves only, not the intellectual content) after they are made and may be stored indefinitely at our discretion.

    9. Free advertising is not permitted on these forums. Our paid advertisers pay for the right to sell their products and services here. See for more information.
