Obviously I didn’t. But I’m not too surprised that I was completely unaware of what went into a website. Having no prior web experience, or html, I took on the task of founding HuntAddicts.com. Building this new site in the midst of the rest of life is interesting. (I say that as I type at 1:10 a.m.) My wife has gone to bed, and I’m setting up a new blog, the purpose of which is to keep you fellow addicts updated on the goings and comings of HuntAddicts.com. I may replace the news section with this blog, which will be easier to keep up to date, including RS feeds, and all the fancy features of WordPress. (That is the foundation of this blog).
The latest thing to announce is the finality of the 2009 HuntAddicts photo contests. I don’t know if you can tell, but I’m pretty excited about it. I sent a mass message out to all the facebook users who have joined the HuntAddicts.com group over there, and need to add a tweet to the twitter machine, so we can get the word out about these contests. Tell your friends, foes, and whoever about it. As soon as the photos start coming in, they will be uploaded for everyone to see. I might even post them here on this blog, until the contest is over and then they will be posted on the main site forever. (For your viewing/bragging pleasure for years and years to come).
So if you kill a big buck, enter it in the contest. A big bull…well, there is a contest for that as well. I know what you’re thinking…what if I kill a giant antelope, or bear, or a once in ten lifetimes argali ram. Whatever it is you hunt, there is a contest for that, it is called the “Best Field Photo” Contest. Even if you just happen to harvest a great buck with your camera, send it in because it could win.
So that leads me to your next question…what are the prizes? That, my friends, is still under negotiation. But I will tell you that whatever the prizes are, they will be sweet. (Not like a new scentless deodorant sweet, but like “Oh, I’ve been looking at that forever and wanted to buy it, but my wife wouldn’t let me, but I dream about it every day” sweet. So get excited about these contests and tell everyone about them. HuntAddicts apparel is on the way as well. If I can get any of the embroidery guys to call me back, hats will be in process within the week. Check back tomorrow, i’ll post up some hat designs, you can help me choose which one to use for now.
Until my next post, (we’ll see how this works out). Happy Hunting, and send me your photos!
