WELCOME TO SWAMP TALK.
This forum was created as a FREE meeting place for outdoorsmen . It is a place to chat and laugh with others of similar interest. A friendly place to find answers to your questions, share tips and tricks that you’ve picked up along the way, learn a little, teach a little, and post photos to share your success with other members. Trapping is the backbone of our forum but all outdoor topics are welcome here. Swamp Talk was created in March of 2006 and has earned the reputation of being the friendliest and most informative outdoor forum on the internet. We are proud of our reputation and we'd like to keep it intact. Our mission here is to bring people together to preserve our traditions through the sharing of knowledge and the reinforcement of proper ethics. We encourage you to share your success photos with us but PLEASE US DISCRETION in your posting of catch photos and descriptions of dispatch methods. The Swamp can be as entertaining as it is informative. The rules of the house are few but must be obeyed to remain on board with us. There will be absolutely no talk of (POLITICS) or (RELIGION) on this forum. These topics always lead to bickering and bickering we have no tolerence for. Picking on, bashing or discrediting another member is not accepted and if one member gives another advice that you don‘t agree with, give your advice and opinion without undermining the credibility of the first advice given. Belittling another member will not be tolerated here. A forum is only as good as its members - So post often and share your secrets with others to make your visit here a mutual benefit for everyone. Have fun and welcome to the Swamp.
