    Hope you dont mind a Texan joining your show. I will be there. Look forward to meeting some of you!
  5. I will be there for part of it but will not be competing this year due to haveing neck surgery and not getting anything mounted to compete with. TDP84, there will be suppliers there but Sunday morning they will all be packing up to leave and most of what they brought will be gone anyway, so if you want to go and see suppliers and such you should go saturday morning, also I am from out in Blanchard, so we are pretty close, maybe see you there.
    Joe, you have got it made in the shade this year since I am not going to compete, was going to do a redfish and put you down this year, haha, just kidding man, cant beat you anyway.

  7. I'll be there Joe, will you be bringing another Red Fish this year??

  9. Hey Joe You know I will be there. We haven't had any mud bugs this year. I look forward to doing the auction, I have more fun than anyone. Wonder what kind of cake we are having this year?

    I'll be there also. This is my first convention/attempt to compete. I'll be competiting in the waterfowl division, but i still have a few last minute things to finish up. I thought I was alone with the rushing/stressing of waiting til the last minute, but it seems like im not! lol
    Cant wait to meet everybody!

    duckhntr594, your not the only one. My deer is mounted and slowly drying. I had planned one doing this about 2 months in advance but it didn't happen. I'm getting the final part to my base in tomorrow so I hope by Wednesday everything is put together and the finishing is done. This is only my second comp and I'm ready for the crawfish boil that's happening Friday night. I missed it last year.

    joeym, come on over.

    well i guess my mount's ready just laid the last coat of clear on it. i'lll see yall at the boil

  15. Well I was going to attend but not compete this year as I recently ahd neck surgery and did not complete anything as I was planning, but with soem encouragement from my wife and granddaughter I did get a couple fish on a simple habitat done in time so I guess I will see what a hurry-up mount can do. See yall there.
