I'll be happy to give references at any time. Several members know me personally, as well as my reputation. They know where I started, and where I am at now.

Any. Time. Ever.

Yeah yeah, I ain't saying you're all hat no cattle, but I'm sure the fish in a few of your stories may have grown a little overtime. Now I'm not saying I'm any different....

Madrina has more balls than some of the guys who post and run on here...

Besides, in today's ever-changing landscape of gender fluidity, you may have been correct on the right day...

Yeah seriously.

You think I was bragging when I said I purchased a website 7 years ago and never did anything with it?

Re: Meeting Fellow Members


One thing's for sure - if your full of chit on the interwebs youll be found out. Besides the 5 or so members I knew of i have had a local builder and plumber who asked me if I was Jaws - both saw houses we built on the Pics thread. One was 4 years or so ago and the other was last year.

Somebody you know will be on there. Doesn't matter what the Forum is. A couple years ago a closed hunting group I belong to exposed a guy who showing off a deer that he did not kill, one of the guides from the ranch that was shot on jumped on there and said that he had his picture taken with it but another Hunter killed it. Dude got hazed so bad he quit. LOL

Cross checking pics of someone's work is very easy on the internet.

A reverse image search. You can see where the picture originated on the web, for the most part. It can at least show if it's actually someone else's pic. It wouldn't have worked for the scenario you were talking about though, unless a reverse search took you to the original content that told it wasn't his deer.

Yeah, in that case it was somebody who had actually been there when the picture was taken. LOL

I've known John for several years. Known about him for many more- my sons went to school with him, as well as my lead guy.
