I agree with Duke, I'm thrilled that Mark is poking his head in here from time to time.
I had a lengthy conversation with Mark Drury, Steve Stoltz and Chris Parrish at the NWTF National Convention two years ago. I was telling them about our forum and was lamenting the lack of dignitaries from our sport that participate. They agreed to a man that they don't "engage" the public on the internet and feared that they had more to lose than to gain.
All three are Calling Champions, call designers and endorsers of calls along with being Pro Staffers, video stars and hunting celebrities of note. Unfortunate that they feel that way but they're probably correct.
Outdoor writers, on the other hand, are known but to a few diehard sportsmen such as the regular readers of T&TH. It brings a smile to know that Lovett, Spencer and Strand can drop in here and not feel threatened. Now don't you guys go and get so famous that you can't do this anymore.
