    That's it Ron. Just go ahead and suck up. I notice Sonner didn't tell YOU you didn't belong here. Birdbrains and fishheads have similar thought patterns I suspect.

    Buck, you are the one who leaves for a year and then comes back on your first post last weekend to bash myself & Miranda for getting married. Let's see Buck...we have been together for 7 years, we want to start a family and do it the right way by getting married before she gets pregnant, lets see you keep finding fault in us trying to do things the right way.

    Buck, you still have never honored the large donation promised TERF, you still come on here acting like a big shot when all you truly are is a buffoon....why don't you come to the World Show Buck, I'll tell you why....because you know your ass would get laughed out of the convention center.

    I buried the hatchet with you long ago, but you believe in resurrection. You PM'ed me that you would be in Houston this week & I PM'ed you back I'd be there tonight (already home). Where are you Buck, another lie ??? If you would stay on your lithium carbonate for over a week at a time maybe you could see the mirror staring back at you. Your post about my wife was deleted by the mods, I wish it wasn't. You haven't changed one bit & have had to either delete or modify two of your own posts in this thread because, I guess, after you took your lithium meds you realized what a jack ass you were sounding like.

    Buck, for a man with so much drive and determination it is sad to see you self mutilate your very own business through your very own words. No one on here has ever attacked your wife, kids nor your pets, but you continue to do so vigorously to others including myself. Buck, we are not the kids on the "Scary Site" that you bragged so highly of yourself on (yes Buck, EVERYBODY here saw your words on that site how you bragged to 11 and 12 year old troubled kids about how rich and famous you were in Germany and how you had all these little 11 and 12 year old gullable children in awe with your story's to them about how you are a wealthy jet setter, passing around your telephone number to them like it was candy to them ....yes Buck, we have all passed the posts you made on the "Scary Site" around in PM's and laughed hysterically at you and also sadly wondered ::) )

    You really need to let your animosity towards me go Buck, I mean one year almost & it takes a happy wedding to draw back out your poison....what gives ??? ???

    I'm done with it & wish you well, I really only see you moving up in this industry because I don't think you can sink yourself much lower. Good luck Buck, just remember...when you are typing you are not representing Michael Rogers, you are representing Black Forest eyes. Stop committing business suicide on the Taxidermy.net. You say you have a product to offer, offer it and shut up! Jeeze Buck, it is not that hard.

    Josh, I have always liked you & your ideas, go gettem!!!

    George, take your Geritol, drink a Pepsi & go skin a Bongo or something.....stop picking on the fish heads!!! ;D

    MP did you learn the proper way to insult a polack yet?

    I was way up North in Washington County about a week ago & tried vigorously, but them pollocks on Bordosesky Road know more German jokes than I do Pollock jokes. It wasn't a fair fight :-\ But I did hear a really good one about Bohemian's ;)

    pollock are fishes man. Congrats on the nuptuals.
  10. LOL...LOL..PAUL.I think I'd like to spend a day fishing in the boat with you.......that's if I could stop laughing long enough to actually tie a lure on and make a cast.

    michael p. Getting better with age :)

    We saw it at the Luxor, U 2 ?

    LMAO Paul....yes they are :) I'd love to go fishing also as long as you don't use Kraut for bait!! LMAO! :)
  12. No kraut Michael...too stinky and hard to keep on the hook. The laughs might just be worth listening to you all day too.....but I'm not sure about that. You're sense of humor is even more wry than mine.

    George The older I get, the better I was.

    Michael, what the hell is Geritol? I'm already taking a quarter pill of Viagra every night so I don't piss on my feet, now you want me to take some OTC junk? What's the deal with that.
  14. Better watch out George...before you know it you'll be pissin in you OWN cheerios.Or do you already do that just to stay on top of your game?

    Becky P One must believe the glass is half full.

    I didn't read all the posts, I quit when it went south around page 4. I don't see anything wrong with it. For starters I think you need a little ego to be in this business, it helps to push you to be better at what you do, afterall you don't want that ego to get bruised by your competitor down the road. Ooops, I said "competitor" and that's what I meant, because anytime you give people a choice of who to use then you have competition, just like Kmart and Walmart. We don't have a Kmart anymore because Walmart won, LOL.

    Second, I think it would be a great learning tool for those of us that aren't so great at doing fish. After I get my customer and competition work finished I just might try my hand at it if y'all go through with it. And if I do, I WANT feedback, good AND bad (it may all be bad and if it is, so be it, I'll learn), so the next one will hopefully be better.

    Josh, I think you have a great idea and if someone doesn't want to play, no one is holding a gun to their head. Hell, they don't even have to look at the pretty or not so pretty pics, they can skip that thread just like any other they don't want to see.

    With that attitude it makes you wonder if they consider competing at a state or higher show education or ego building. I just wonder how many people would compete if there were no prizes given at those, so with no prizes given here, it's a true chance at learning. If people are only wanting to show off their mounts, they can do that anyway anywhere on this forum. What about displaying mounts somewhere INCLUDING on customers' walls? That could be considered ego building too.

    I wouldn't expect the big names to play, they know how to make a fish look good, no, great. Besides they don't have time to play with pissants ;)
    George, what was that you told me the other day? Something about if you're not the leader the view never changes? So what's wrong with trying to move up a little? At least there'll be less a$$es to look at in front of you ;)
  17. There's underlying currents though Becky. No body seems to want to talk about the real dig. I have my views on this whole fiasco and personally.....I think it's pretty darn funny.

    I know this, If "I" was one of the big name players/teachers in this arena and thank God I am not....I would have made a post to quell this uprising LONG ago.

    George The older I get, the better I was.

    Marc, that sounds more like a dare than an entreaty. Why should the "big guys" even comment? What motivation is if for THEM? Do you see Stefan Savides or even Jon Stanley or Nancy Crocker entering birds in the Bird of the Week. How about Bill Yox, Rick Carter, or Ken Walker entering animals in the Mammal of the Week. I dare say that MOST of them don't gravitate to the addiction many of us do, but even with Bill and Rick, neither of them really have anything to prove and they already offer their services in teaching. I think in the business world, their reaction (or lack thereof) is called "Professionalism" and "humility". They didn't START this post or comment anywhere while the peanut gallery was jumping and screaming like Nancy Pelosi, so why should they come in now that MY OPINIONS don't match some of YOUR OPINIONS. Possibly they simply don't care and rightfully so IN MY OPINION.

    Yes I have.

    Cole, I haven't seen Stefan on here in nearly 10 years now I guess. Jon and Nancy have shown work and problem solving but I wasn't aware of them offering "entries". Bill markets his instruction so I wouldn't expect him to "enter" anything and usually Rick offers advice and vacation pictures. Ken certainly doesn't enter and I'm not too sure I've seen his mounts other than in someone else's avatar. But it's all a moot point. I simply don't care. I only voiced MY OPINION and the first thing that happened was that the pitbulls were loosed. As far as I was concerned their teeth had long ago been pulled. But even YOU, Cole have to admit when Ron ran a "competition", he got prizes and ribbons. Read the title of the thread. What does the word "challenge" mean to YOU? or is it really "I dare you to show and tell"? If that's the case, I already vote for Jeff Lumsden who gave the beautiful tutorial on painting the scales on salmon.
