Post 2017 major changes!
Hi All
There are going to be some major changes coming up very soon. The first will be the address.
The original founder of the site Steve "VerminHunter" has very kindly been footing the bill for domain name renewal each year. Last year it looked like he had given up, as it got very close to the deadline of 23rd Jan.
This year it has still not been renewed on (28th Feb). I have tried all the email addresses I have had for him and his mobile number but heard nothing back.
Sadly, I cannot just "take over" the renewal of the domain name as there is a protocol to follow. The protocol means 2 months of no Verminhunter site before "someone" can take it on.
As a result I have registered the domain name "verminhunter.uk" and pointed it to this site.
Next I will update the banner image to make people aware of the change and finally, I will send out a site wide email advising everyone to update their bookmarks to verminhunter.uk. This way there will be no loss of service.

Once everything has settled down I plan to update the forum software to the current version and possibly simplify it - we have too many themes to maintain properly and a bunch of "mods" that are outdated.

Finally, to try and get some new and current content I'm considering "sponsoring" the site. I get many requests for sponsorship each month, most for marginal groups, those that i have supported have provided less return than I have provided making it uneconomical - but Verminhunter has been a big part of my shooting support and learning, so giving something back will be nice. Sponsorship will probably be along the line of free targets for the best posts each month. I've not finally decided so any feedback would be great.

ATB
Danny

Thank you once again for all your work on our behalf Danny; I don't think many people know just how much work you do and the time you put in to keep the site maintained. It's a time-consuming business, especially when you are busy running your own target business.

Cheers Jim.
Hopefully we can encourage some more people back on to the site, sharing their forays, knowledge and views. At it's peak we were getting 10,000 visits a month! I believe the forum will be 10 years old this year, it would be nice to get it buzzing again. :-)

The good news is the email reminded me about the site after almost 5 years away! Only took 3 days of guessing to get my user name and password combo right.
Looking forward to getting into the swing of it all again!
Thank you

I've been popping back in very occasionally. Don't even own any guns nowadays. I've got Steve as a friend on FB but doesn't look like he's used his account for several years. Kwiky may have a contact number/email for him...
