    I recently met "Rick Carter", the "deer guy", while I was in Georgia. He is a very nice man and showed me around WASCO. He, our friend Michael Vaden, and I had lunch at subway. I was very impressed by his vast knowledge of deer and most other animals.

    It was so cool to see WASCO, I have tried to imagine it every time I place an order with them. The main office had some incredible mounts with very friendly employees.

    I was just wondering how many of you have had the opportunity to meet him?

    I also had the pleasure of meeting him at the Iowa show. I really enjoyed his critique on my stuff and his seminar was nothing but informative.

    I've see him, in Dobson NC, for the past few years at Surry Community College Mini Taxidermy courses in May. Very nice man.

    OK Yox, where did they hide the roses. I see someone's trying to blow them up Rick's nether region. Looks like MV has been keeping Daniel in the dark. If he didn't get stuck with the bill it's only because he hasn't been to enough shows yet. LMAO

    Rick is one of the good guys, even if he did move to Georgia.

    Daniel M., I'm glad you enjoyed your visit to WASCO. You have a lot of talent and at the rate you're going we will be seeing your name in the trade journals soon.

    I paid for my own sandwich. Daniel had to buy Vaden's lunch. He was the only one who was broke! I had already cleaned him out in the eye room. LOL

    I had cheese and wine with Rick and Barry Smith at the Iowa show, found out how to paint using an air brush without a compressor. It involves a bicycle LOL [ REALLY!!]
