Welcome To The New & Improved Outdoor Central.com News Network
We are excited to bring to you a whole new look with added extra’s, including Discussion Group Forums, the iCaught It / iShot It Image Gallery (where you and fellow users will soon be able to upload your latest catch or kill). There are viewer polls, and we’ve even included an Video Network on OutdoorCentral in partnership with YouTube, (again where you and fellow users can upload and submit your latest hunting or fishing videos), as well as a new sitewide search option so you can find specific information on exactly what you are looking for, and so much more.
We have also sectioned out the website to make your viewing a much easier, pleasant, and a personalized experience.
In the fishing section, you will find feature stories, including photos, fishing reports, and Fish & Game rules and regulations.
In the hunting section you will find feature stories including photos, hunting reports, and the latest Fish & Game rules and regulations.
In our Outdoor Recreation section, you will find the latest news on ATV/ORV riding trails and regulations. Upcoming cycling events and trail openings, canoeing and kayaking adventures and events taking place throughout the nation, stories and tips on camping, hiking, backpacking, and even stories about wetlands, WMA’s and refuges.
We have also included a new section on Parks. Here you will find information on “What’s Happening” in your local area federal and state parks, such as park sponsored fishing tournaments, educational opportunities, and any other number of outdoor related events.
Again, we have added two other new sections while we were at it. They are Outdoor Kids, and Outdoor Women sections. Here you will find the latest news on what kids activities are going on in your area, local educational opportunities for women, etc. These should both prove to be very informative and popular sections that you will want to check almost daily.
New in all of our articles, we have included the ability to vote on the article, and/or leave a comment on the article. This will help others to find the most popular articles with simply one click, and to interact with others about the article and its information in the comment section and forums. Also new, you can even sign up to have news stories sent directly to your email, either by section, or ALL newly posted news stories.
We truly hope you enjoy the new look and features. Be sure to let us know what we can do to improve the website even further, and don’t forget to tell your friends about our new and improved website!
PS – While you’re thinking about it, why don’t you send us a couple of photos of you with your latest catch or kill. We’d like to feature your photos in our iCaught It / iShot It Image Gallery. Send those pics to odcbiz [at] yahoo [dot] com.
Thanks for your support and we’re looking forward to hearing from you soon.
