    Another reason that this is the only social media platform I am on.

  • GoWild's avatar

    @Eric thank you! We appreciate you.

  • Walt's avatar

    Years back my boxing club raffled off a gun for a fund raiser. 5+ years later it was flagged for going against their standards

  • Wayne's avatar

    @Eric same here. The others are trash.

  • GoWild's avatar

    @Walt idiotic. Thanks for being here!

  • GoWild's avatar

    @Wayne we truly appreciate each and every one of you.

  • Lisa's avatar

    What I don't understand is WHY are you even on Facebook? I understand "spread the word," but this community is thriving. You don't NEED that cesspool platform.

  • Karaca's avatar

    And yet there’s advertisements for cannabis and alcohol on social media and nobody bats an eye. I might be a bit of a conspiracy nut but I do believe that the anti hunting narrative and censorship is the big food companies that don’t want us to be self sufficient. They’re the ones lobbying in your congress and my parliament.

  • GoWild's avatar

    @Lisa appreciate the compliment. We wouldn’t be working towards our mission of “unlocking the gate to the outdoors” without growing and getting awareness out there.

  • GoWild's avatar

    @Karaca you might be in to something!

  • Lisa's avatar

    @Karaca Yep! They have been working at this for decades!

  • Lisa's avatar

    @GoWild Call me silly, but a lot can be said for word of mouth. Unlocking the gate to the outdoors has already been unlocked for centuries, right, so the mission is great but your members are the best source. But that's just me, what do I know.🤣

  • Lisa's avatar

    @GoWild I had a funny thought, after I sent that.☝🏻 Your mission to stay on Facebook so GoWild can "unlock the gate to the outdoors," reminds me of a "Christian" that says they need to go into the cesspool of a strip club to reach the lost. Just sayin'. But I know you all feel you need to be there. But FACEBOOK is toxic and ran by people that hate your cause and mission. I hate to see you even being there and trying to fulfill your wishes. I hope GoWild can be satisfied with the people that members are bringing in by word of mouth....eventually 🙏

    Why even use Facebook?

  • Joseph's avatar

    I got off fakebook years ago. Haven’t looked back and feel better for it. This is the only social media that I use. And I couldn’t be happier for it.

  • Max's avatar

    This is why I got off Facebook! The whole censorship and woke culture is ridiculous! Get rid of them! You don’t need them in your life.

  • Noah's avatar

    It’s all thanks to those dumb uneducated people that don’t know anything about hunting or guns.

  • Jeff's avatar

    @GoWild it's snowing unfortunate circumstance. I absolutely despise the fakery on both Facebook and Instagram. I dumped my Facebook 7 years ago. The environment that the team at GoWild is maintaining is so important!

  • Jeff's avatar

    I didn't mean snowing! I meant it's an!! Dammit Jimmy!!

  • Lisa's avatar

    @Jeff Jeff, I'm thinking what we see on other platforms, such as FB and Instagram, isn't fake. I think what we see are folks that have been spoon fed a bunch of horse 💩 and they are gobbling it up! Bunch of toxic lies that have grabbed many suckers by the nostils, and they just follow along like a bunch of idiots. I should be careful, as I have family on those platforms. The GoWild "environment" on occasion gets tainted by the horse 💩 that trickles in here.....thankfully the team weeds them out. Or I see others that join, get bored and leave. GoWild may have their reasons for being on those other platforms....and I believe 🙏they are strong enough to make sure "we" don't turn into another stupid- 🫏 TikTok🙄

  • Jeff's avatar

    @Lisa I agree about the toxic, fake BS that is FB and Instagram. I have been listening to a lot of podcasts lately (benefits of working alone) and quite a few bring up how most of the posts on those platforms get filtered and edited for the likes. They also seem to hate certain God given rights that the founding fathers wrote down. I've seen some of the creepers show up, but they get expelled quick by the team.

  • Brandon's avatar

    Dropped Facebook years ago. You should too.

  • John's avatar

    This is why I left Facebook years ago. It is run by left wing liberals who despise Christians and are pushing thier agenda. We no longer even have news media in this country, only talk shows pushing thier agenda.

  • GoWild's avatar

    Thanks guys! The only way we know how to

  • GoWild's avatar

    Thanks guys! Getting the word out about GoWild by sharing your referral link not only gets you reward points, but helps us out tremendously. 🙌

  • GoWild's avatar

    The easiest way to share your unique link is to go to your profile and tap “share GoWild” then copy that link and send to those you think would benefit from our platform. Those who join get a $10 gift in our shop and you get 400 points. Appreciate y’all!

  • Lisa's avatar

    @GoWild Speaking of that....when will we be able to see 👀 the list of people we have brought in? We use to be able😥. After that disappeared, I remember once I had brought my cousin in, he used the link, and he wasn't instantly following me and points weren't added. You guys fixed it. Thanks. Just wish we could check who we brought in.

    Thanks for the rewards🙏

  • Matt's avatar

    This right here for you

  • Eric's avatar

    He ain’t lying

  • Brandon's avatar

    @Eric me and you both

  • Sean's avatar

    Add Instagram to that list too!

  • Lisa's avatar

    @David

  • David's avatar

    Yes fb is full of toxicity, negativity, fakes and trolls, but I'm still there, posting away, using their platform against them. And I'll go on using it putting up a good fight. And if I'm silenced for whatever reason, or like this the post being censored/blocked, I'll just keep at it. I will not be silenced, bullied, canceled by anyone.
    There's good there too. Pages I follow, and a part of, The Friends Of The Hennepin Canal Community and The Hennepin Canal Foundation Community. I have the same great interactions on those two as I do here. And other pages too.
    Ya'll have great and valid points, and I totally agree.

  • David's avatar

    @David I always wondered about the @GoWild page on there and who the admin is. I'm a follower of that page too. Was wondering who runs it and does the posts? 🤔🤷‍♂️ Is it Top Ultra Black Secret only the Dark Lord himself @Brad is privy to? 🤔🤷‍♂️😁

  • David's avatar

    @David And other pages there I follow are @Okayest and @Blue! They are here as well. Illinois Fishing Addicts and Illinois Fishing Bandits are two really good pages there also.

  • David's avatar

    @David with all that being said, I totally understand and 1000% support why @GoWild was created in the first place by @Brad @Donovan and @Chris. I really wish I could have been here from the getgo! The level of welcoming and acceptance has been amazing. And the connections I've made with a lot of ya'll is priceless! I might be on that you know what but GoWild shall always be my social media home. I'm not going anywhere folks and stay tuned for more shenanigans, my humor, my faith, my passion for fishing, my workouts and more! 😁

  • David's avatar

    @David on a side note there's been a few on here who tried to silence and cancel me. Either for my sense of humor and posting funny memes, one claimed I just kept posting the same fish pics over and over for the points and another didn't like me posting my trophies, claimed I was inflating my points just for the rewards and called me a DORK for laughing him off and not lowering myself way down to his level. 🤣🤪🤣🤪😁
    Guess he thought he owned and ran @GoWild exclusively. 🤷‍♂️🤣

  • Brad's avatar

    @David 😂 I don’t have a personal account. I have burner to check this for stats. It’s a team effort

  • Brad's avatar

    I appreciate everyone saying we shouldn’t even be on Facebook. Despite how we’d like things to be, it’s still helpful to get the word out as a business. We did stop advertising with Facebook years ago. And it’s not a critical part of our marketing but social media is still important for reaching those who haven’t joined or who we may bring back in.

  • David's avatar

    @Brad exactly! Use it to our advantage. I know I share my link on my page, and screenshots of all the rewards I earn here. I also share what I buy here in our shop and the awesome notes I always receive with my orders from ya'll.

  • Brad's avatar

    @David I appreciate you especially 👊

  • David's avatar

    @Brad thanks! That means a lot to me, more than you'll probably ever know. And I appreciate you and this community! If it weren't for @GoWild I probably wouldn't be as, how to say it, passionate about the outdoors and protecting our rights. Like being a member of The Sportsmen's Alliance and Trout Unlimited and such even the NRA.
    Or being a member of the Friends of the Hennepin and The Hennepin Canal State Park Foundation.
    And if it weren't for ya'll I most definitely would not be doing these workouts and being committed to continue doing stuff like that.

  • Matt's avatar

    @David this is a great reply. Stand your ground and not be silenced.

  • David's avatar

    @Matt thanks. Each one of us should decide what's best for them. There's absolutely nothing wrong with not being on there.

  • Matt's avatar

    @David truth

  • Mike's avatar

    Exactly why the only social media I have is go wild and YouTube

  • Brad's avatar

    @David

  • Lisa's avatar

    @Mike Same here, and for years.
    Ya know what? I'm thinking it is starting to be more common.

  • Lisa's avatar

    @David I hear ya Buford, about "nothing being wrong with not being on there (FB)."
    HOWEVER.....Let me shine a little light on where I'm coming from.... then you and Brad can go on chest bumping🤣......

    If FB blocks people from posting things that are legal (hunting and guns) and they block people from sharing things that are their constitutional rights....and they banned Trump (even though he has many flaws, he at least sought biblical counsel). Then what does that say? You're fine with keeping one foot in the enemy's camp, and another foot outside of it. I guess by doing that you can see the cesspool of 💩 that is going on and you can create a post like this sharing how they are blocking content. It has been a source of time sucking activities for me, 😂. However, stop posting that FB is blocking content. OF COURSE THEY ARE!! They HATE anything that resembles FREEDOM! They HATE anything that resembles what so many lost their lives to protect!
    But...if y'all want to keep on straddling the fence, all you're gonna get is a sore backside...and people, here, rolling their eyes every time you whine that FB blocked something you have rights to post.
    Ok, go on chest bumping you two! Lol😆
    😘

  • Mike's avatar

    @Lisa I think so to Lisa. I left the instagram and facebook back in 2019. Haven’t looked back since. Even took me a while to bite the bullet and sign up here but I’m glad I did. Love this community
