  1. YOU SUCK.... ;D
    Working on bases all day today, a deer tomorrow, a goose the next day. Dammit, ONE of these gotta be good enough to take. The fallow aint good enough, nor the buffalo, lifesize ram or coyote. Or maybe I am just being paranoid.... never entered in the gamehead catagory and I am scared of the open division....

    AFWS The lost Robertson

    Take what you think is the WORST mount ;D SERIOUSLY. I took five things this year and picked out what I thought was the BEST to the WORST ;D it was completely the opposite ::)
     

  3. My first show was just like that. I took all I had lying around, and the things I didnt thing were any good placed the highest.
    This year, I want some good advise from the judges. I want to take something I think is perfect so I can have the things pointed out I didnt see. All I have now has flaws that will damn them from the start, and I already know what i did and how to correct it. Guess I am being too hard on myself, I just know I can do better.

    At least I am getting my freezers clean out of all this specimens I have been wanting to mount!

    I still have 2 week-ends!!!
     
  17. I dont think I will ever be ready! ;)
     
  18. Anna,
    Even if your not ready you can still see me get my A$$ handed to me with mine.
     
  19. Aw, come on Bill! This year's gonna be diffrent for you. Now me,.... I have never entered a gamehead,... and for good reason. I will get my a$$ chewed off then handed to me in pieces.
     
  20. Judy it is bringing back memories. The stress this year is a whole lot like my first show, yet; very different. It has been a challenging year to make sure this is going to be
    a great show as well as trying to get a lot of items back on track.
    Bill / Anna, You guys know the routine and i am pretty confident that what you have learned will show in your work. Remember it may only be a couple point improvement which is average, If they are more that makes it that much nicer. I really don't see anything south getting removed by the judges.
    Relax and remember Sunday morning is not that far away! LOL
