Copy/paste from that thread, as it explains why I don't do the signature and why I'll be gone for a while. To add 3 that I don't have any kind of affiliation with leather gloves (wear the heck out of them while working in the woods and dealing with deer), Stihl (all they do is work) and Fiskers (sp?) pole and hand saws (they aren't professional, like Silky and they do break too often, but their hand saws cut very easy and their top end pole saw is what I just keep buying every year.
I know that many here appreciate listing affiliations and products in signatures and completely understand why. The only reason I don't is because I fear it'd make me look like a jerk or that I'm just posting to get these companies promotions.
Paid pro staffs for, in no particular order:
Wildlife Research Center
GlenDel Full Rut
Rivers Edge/Leverage Treestands
Heater Body Suit
Hunters Safety Systems
Nocturnal Lighted Nocks
and, to a lesser level, LaCrosse and Scent Lok
I suspect those companies would appreciate it, but I'd have to believe you people would get real sick of it after a while and it'd make me look like I was trying to show off &/or that I was just posting to keep getting those company names out there. So, I just pretty stay away from talking about products all together. When I do, I mention that I pro staff for that company or a competitors in the post. I'm not trying to hide it, just trying not to be any more obnoxious than I naturally am.
Anyway, you all will be free of my ramblings for a while. I'm leaving on a family vacation in the AM, stopping home for a cup of coffee after and then I leave again for long term clients work. So, I won't be around much for quite a while. Figured this thread served as a good excuse to explain why I don't list that and various websites in a signature.
Interesting thread idea. Could be real helpful to some.
