I agree with what El Pavo says above.  Keep bringing the content.  Leave out the location.  Simple IMHO

Me apathetic? Nobody who knows me would use that word to describe me ha ha! Anyways, I still don't understand how stopping/banning guys from making videos of their hunts and posting them on social media is going to protect the resource. I mean that line of thought includes arms and ammo manufactures, clothing, and hunting equipment and call makers. Everyone of those are making money off of a public resource, and use it in advertisements to further their business. In the last few years small numbers of activists have used social media to project an image all out of proportion to actual mainstream public opinion.Squeaky wheel gets the grease and all. And lawmakers paid attention, and look what is happening to our country. We must use social media to our advantage to expand the public's exposure to hunting and outdoor pursuits, not limit it. The chasm between urban and rural populations widen with each year. Fewer and fewer people have a connection to the land. We need to use social media to project a positive image, and a united front, and also try to narrow that chasm, or at least slow that gap from widening, or we are going to lose it all in another generation or two.

Huge difference between promoting hunting in general and promoting specific public land.  Is hot spotting or highlighting public ground a positive way to use social media to our advantage?  In the case discussed with Seek One, it was about being demonetized.  They can still share hunts, etc. from what I understand, but will not get paid.  They can earn money another way and still share their hunts in my opinion.  As mentioned previously it’s almost as if highlighting hunting the suburbs has awakened the antis…. Sometimes you need to fly under the radar.  My concerns are not with sharing and promoting hunting with videos, pictures, stories, BUT leave the promotion of YXZ region in XYZ state, XYZ WMA, XYZ National Forest, and honestly XYZ state in general out of the content.  And that goes for individuals on forums and Facebook too.   It’s simply not necessary unless it’s about personal gain.  Bottom line….. it’s selfish.  Let’s not turn it around on concerned hunters as the problem.  Share away, just leave the exploitation of public land out of your content.  Simple fix.  As hunter opportunities are dwindling in these highlighted areas, are some willing to step back, find some humility and make the necessary changes?
