Real sportsmen don't tweet (and don't chat on facebook, either)

While the nation's hunters and anglers readily use the Internet and web sites for finding everything from hot fishing spots to hiring a hunting guide they don't have much use for social networks.

Southwick Associates' HunterSurvey.com and AnglerSurvey.com have polled sportsmen from all across America. What the well-respected outdoors polling firm found was that 64 percent of hunters and anglers are not using social networking sites to obtain outdoor information.

Only 24 percent of hunters use Facebook while just a paltry 2.4 percent favor Twitter. About CamoSpace is used by 3.2 percent of hunters.

Statistics are pretty similar for the nation's anglers. Only 22 percent of anglers use Facebook while just 2.5 percent utilize Twitter.

YouTube and and MySpace didn't do very well, either.
