    I cooked Bill...Unlike Tim..lol...I did one finally on Sunday, but did not get any pictures of it...Being the host shop for this thing definatley kicked my ass...
     
  9. Scott, you were a GREAT host and I can't say thank you enough for all the support work you did for all of us. Thank you!

    Of course, by now you are probably curled up in a fetal position in your bed.

    Ron was great! I really enjoyed his simple, direct delivery of the information and the fantastic hands on support while we were mounting the birds. Thanks Ron.

    It was great to meet and work with everyone. Good friendships were made by all.

    I'll add my two cents. Scott was an excellent host to shut down his shop for this seminar and be the shop beaatch and the great food we had. Deb brought bear, I brought venison and we had a lot of other great food. What a great bunch of people we had. All these people are very good at birds. I am just starting . Everyone was very helpful to me. Thank you to everyone. I left there with a notebook full of tips and ideas. I will let Scott rest up for a week before I call you. A big Thank You to Ron for all his knowledge and tips. For those of you thinking of doing this you won't be disappointed.Thanks again Scott. Made it home at 4:30pm safe and sound, But my azz is dragging.Mark

    If Ron recuperates enough to have another one of these seminars do yourself a favor and sign up! He’s an excellent instructor who communicates well and is just an all around great guy. Guaranteed that your bird work will be all the better for it.

    And thank you Scott for all the hard work. Be sure to keep a weekend (or more) open this fall to come up to camp for some hunting/fishing….grouse, turkeys, geese…trout, bass or sturgeon ….your choice. You deserve the time off!!
