I know that deer had your anxiety level quite high. Hope you feel better now with a job well done. Oh yeah, just return the paxil sample I sent to you!(LOL) Peace- Jeff F.

Just got home!

I just got home from the show. I had a blast! I was pretty worried about entering the open for the first time, but I found that it wasn't so bad. I recieved a blue on my FHW buck (90) and a red on my doe (88)-I was so close! My other wt buck I recieved a second and on all 3 deer the nosepad was the MAIN problem. I am going to be redoing them as I will be taking these mounts with me to the Idaho show in a couple of months. My pig head suffered many faults and I got a 3rd place on her. I went for a radical turn that is just not possible in a real hog. I did not know that sows couldn't turn their heads that much, so my mount was not up to Todd Kranau's standards. I will be mounting another hog for the ID show, and I will not be doing a radical turn on it. I will write more on the show tomorrow. I need to unpack and get some rest.

I will hold on to the Paxil until the shows are over!

Woo Hoo!

I see you've already become a veteran of questioning judges. LMAO. I love it.

But, since I don't know Todd, I have to defend the standards as not exactly HIS but Nature's. A hog really CAN'T turn it's head very far because of it's jowls and anatomy. They actually spin around when they need to turn their heads.
