Like it or not harry, here we go! ;D As many of you have seen, there has been a HUGE outpouring of generosity from people on here the last few days to help with expenses in Seattle during my surgery and recovery while donating a kidney to Mr. Harry Paulson. Harry is one of the most selfless individuals out there and his gratitude for this is too much....this was simply meant to happen, no more, no less........I honestly did not think twice about doing this (although my wife....well that's a different story! LOL) Because of you people we have been able to rent a 2 bedroom unit which also has a kitchen so she can cook for us and there is a washer & dryer, internet, television and is ONLY 3.5 MILES FROM THE HOSPITAL! Before all of your generosity, my wife was not even going to be able to be with me during my surgery and recovery. We couldn't afford the 2 weeks rentals or her being off of work :-\ We are also are getting our airfare, rental car and grocerys with out burdening Harry's family wondering how they could or we could all pay for this. This is because of YOU! All we knew is he needed a kidney, he was dieing and there was no time to think about the major expenses. Not mu ch thought was placed on how we were going to do it, just that it had to be done. Because of you, who are also our family we will go through this together as man and wife, Harry and family and you the wonderful Taxidermists and people of the Taxidermy.net. Because of y'all, not me nor Mr. Paulson, this is all working to where everybody can concentrate on the surgery. There have been a ton of auctions for me and I do appreciate them, as I said, my wife would not even be able to be by my side had it not been for you all......but I don't want to leave out 1 factor.......the recipient, Harry himself. Harry would never ask, but I want to see if I am able to provide Harry with a small bit of financial security so here's what i'm offering, from me to you I am offering a 5 day in house training at my Taxidermy studio plus Texas Whitetail hunt that is all exclusive. By all exclusive I mean you buy your plane ticket and buy your hunting license and then leave your wallet at home every day......EVERYTHING is included.....including all meals, lodging and even processing and shipping of your whitetail meat by a professional processor, vacuum packed, frozen and shipped to your door (in ALL the lower 48 states). You will also receive 3 days of hands on Taxidermy training by 2 time National Champion and 1 time North American Champion Chris Barnhardt !!! The schedule for this will be on one of 2 dates to choose from. This training and hunt is available November 17 thru 21st or December 15th thru 19th. You will fly to Austin where I will pick you up on Wednesday, we will get you to my home where you have your own room, get settled in and then to the farm to hunt the first evening. This is our property, there is no worries about leases or other hunters....once again, let me emphasize, this is OUR PRIVATE PROPERTY......absolutely no worries of competing hunters. Our deer are not the largest in Texas, but they are certainly some of the most beautiflul with a majority of them graced with a double white patch. This is a low fence, free range hunt and as I said, it's all yours! Coyote wallks out, SHOOT HIM! Bobcat, SHOOT HIM, Hog, YOU BETTER SHOOT HIM! This is YOUR 4 complete day hunt. You will not be held back on the deer you shoot and this is not a guarenteed hunt......but you WILL see shootable bucks, it's up to you how long you want to wait and how choosey you are. All the pics below were taken AFTER last season so unless they get hit by a car or nature attacks they will all be older and bigger this year. We have 2 stands with a total of 4 feeders and it's beautiful scenery. Bring your own gun or use my .243. As I said, ALL hogs, coyotes, bobcats and 1 Whitetail buck is yours if you see them.....YOU WILL SEE BUCKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! If you are a bow hunter, WE WILL accomidate you! After each morning hunt we will head to my studio. There you will receive hands on training by clearly one of the largest and most capable talents in our entire industry, Mr.Chris Barnhardt who as I mentioned above is a 2 time National Champion and 1 time North American Champion If you wanted, I will also work with you mounting YOUR (send your cape and antlers) deer head or exotic that you ship to my studio, I will work with you on finishing work, I will teach you my method of europeans and my habitat and pedestal specialties. But honestly, if you win this auction and I were you, I would personally contact Mr. Barnhardt and see what you 2 can do together.......Chris has more talent in his pinky finger than I have in my entire body! Chris Barnhardt is flying in from North Carolina for YOU! You will have 3 entire days of his undivided attention Every evening we will leave the studio at 3:00 P.M. and head back to the farm and hunt till you get your deer till dark until you are successful. After that, you will have a home cooked meal waiting on you. You will eat morning, noon and night...I promise you that If you are succesful (which I am confident you will be) in your hunt, your deer will be skinned, quartered and taken to the meat market where as I said, it will be fully processed and delivered to your door AT NO COST! Guess what else we are doing.....do you know Tom Chambers? Anybody sports fan? Anybody a basketball fan? Remember that big ol' white boy Tom Chambers who use to slam the ball over EVERYBODYS head! Yes, the same Tom Chambers who was drafted by the San Diego Clippers with the eighth pick of the 1981 NBA Draft. The same Tom Chambers who appeared in four NBA All-Star Games during his career (1987, 1989, 1990, and 1991), earning game MVP honors in 1987 after scoring 34 points. And yes, the same Tom Chambers who scored 20,049 total points in the NBA for a career average of 18.1 points per game. His career high was a 60 point performance with the Suns against the Sonics on March 24, 1990 and appeared in sixteen total NBA seasons as a member of the Clippers, Seattle SuperSonics, Phoenix Suns, Utah Jazz, Charlotte Hornets, and Philadelphia 76ers. Well he wants to come hunting with you in your stand on the Saturday you are here and guess what, he is jealous! See, Tom has hunted Africa, much of North America, but has NEVER shot a whitetail....and he wants to bad....but guess what, he can't because YOU ARE! So while you are sitting next to Tom Chambers in the stand and that nice whitetail walks out you can look at him and say "dunk this buddy! BAM!" you can then stand up, dance a jig around Tom and scream "you can't get a deer....you can't get a deer!" Yep, this is your chance to out dunk Tom Chambers by getting a nice Texas Whitetail while he is sitting there green with envy and red with jealousy Below are some game pictures from our farm taken by a game cam 65 yards from my hunting stand....as I said, I will not tell you which deer you can kill or put a size limit on it....if the biggest deer in Fayette County walks out, it's yours! The only restriction is the deer MUST have a 13" inside spread Below are the 2 deer myself and Miranda harvested at my farm in November and December respectively last season....... All of these pics were taken in January AFTER the season closed..... And yes, we do have a few of these....but they (thank god) are not swarming our place yet!! Hopefully we don't see any! ;D But YOU WILL SEE SHOOTABLE BUCKS!!!! We also have coon porn available for your viewing pleasure! This Auction will end Monday July 5th at 1:00 PM noon eastern time. Let's do this for Harry and please only serious bidders. If you win the check needs to be post dated and sent out no later than 1:00 P.M. July 12. Let the bidding begin and GOOD LUCK! You have my personal word that this will be one of the most fun and memorable hunting trips of your life!
