    we will be up to $67 when the last $ i was notified about is recieved getting real close now.. $13 away still need a few more participants,,,,,,that are willing to donate ,that is, remember as posted earlier the $75 gets the plaques made we will still have shipping cost to the winners to cover so we still need more donations, don't stop yet.

    yeh, top,sides,front,and back i think close-ups of eyes and mouth/nose are a must possibly a foot, i feel these will be the problem areas, then we can help each other correct our mistakes

    I took some pics of my squirrel today to look at them on my computer and I have to say I don't think it looks half bad for my second squirrel. I can see a few problems that I don't like but I decided to leave it alone before I really screw it up lol. April 16th is just around the corner can't wait to see everyones squirrel's

    i hope we get enough money in time to give the man time to make the plaques, you know these things are not just sitting on the shelf at his store. Seems to me interest is dying , at least donation speaking

    I think 5 days is too short, april 16th is 10 days away and most people are waiting on their forms to arrive. Plus it takes time to dry befor finish work can be done... plus habitat etc....

    snowshoe, cant wait to see it!!

    shed ego, im just going off of what the bird guys have done. the voting and viewing gets played out real fast and after 5 days it seems the voting comes to a hault. i dont care how long its on for but we cant even get everyone to come up with 5 bucks so why keep this going for a long time. i figure mount your squirrel, post pics on the 16th, 5 days later the polls will announce who had the coolest squirrel and its over! im all ears!
