Adding Tournaments and Derby's

All derbies and tournaments need to be approved by Ice Shanty prior to being posted. Forward all pertinent information to wyoutdoors or Wyofarmer. Once approved the event will be placed into the thread below.


*Channel 7 is, by popular vote, the official Wyoming hardwater radio channel on the ice.

* Most Wyoming Game and Fish Offices are now equipped with a machine which generates a waterproof computer-printout license. A sportsman can have half a dozen licenses and a conservation stamp listed on a single small license which when folded, takes up very little space wherever one decides to keep it.

"Why was my post removed?"
Moderators read pretty much every post that is removed from the entire national IS site, 95% of the time it is for some type of  profane word or expression and generally something known as "letter substitution", putting a couple of "$&" in the middle of a profanity in order to make the word "legal". Although that critter is a rare anomaly here on Wyoming Iceshanty, those are always removed by whatever Mod happens to see them first.  Advertising or personal "For sale" or "want to buy" posts are also removed pretty regularly, although private for sale PM's between members is allowed. Assorted other reasons for post removal may be found listed in detail (page 2, par 1) in the Forum Agreement (See link). On a rare occasion, a post will disappear for no apparent reason. If that happens, shoot one of us a pm and we'll attempt to figure it out.
