    Who ever wins I guarentee you a great learning experience and a fun time. All you gotta do is get here with your cape, form snd antlers..... the rest is taken care of from airport pickup to even lunch at the town barbecue.

    Come check out my little town, my little studio and get ready for a big time! :) I won't hold nothing back and I promise it'll be a good one! Plan on staying one extra day and im sure I can accommodate a little ol'fishing trip or hog hunting trip in there of course on my dime ;)

    I can tell you it would cost a heck of a lot more to attend a couple of days with Mike, so this is a bargain AND it goes to a great cause...your education and the UTA. How could you go wrong? Heck its worth $600 alone just to watch how Mike can drink soda and dip at the same time and not get the two cups mixed up!

    Well then Tim my friend, lets see when that loot actually has to get to Craig Lewis by, maybe he has a deadline that gives you time to make a good bid. The season is right around the corner, if its not already going where you are. Try to make some extra deposit money. Lets see if you can invest in yourself! Guys, Im sure if you would like, you could bid privately too. Good luck Tim and everyone else.

    Yes Bill is correct, anyone wanting to make a private bid cam pm me . Probably after auction looking to recieve check two weeks after bidding closes, with the expo coming up up in January these monies will definately help support the UTA.
    Thanks Again,

    Thanks everybody who bid so far!!! I'm telling you, this is going to be an EXCELLENT 2,3,4,5,6,7 days for whoever wins!

    Yes the auction is for 2 days, that's the UTA part.... but honestly I do not care how long you stay, we'll work till you get tired. If you want to stay 4 days them stay 4 days.... as I said, I don't care.

    This for a very dear cause to my heart and it is a very important cause.....EDUCATION IN OUR INDUSTRY.

    As I said, we can work however long you want so a couple of extra days is no skin off of my back. The one thing I do ask the winner to definitely plan on is to stay a minimum 1 extra day so we can go fishing on the coast or hog hunting.... the 2 will depend on the month and the weather. If it's in the 50's at night and 70's during the day we will do BOTH! :)

    Wow!! Michael's at it again. I wish I had half your energy brother. Folks, I've lost track of how many times I've had the privilege of working with Michael, but one thing never changes. His love for this industry, teaching and helping people and having a good time while including everyone around him in those good times. You won't find a more energetic person anywhere, nor anyone who goes above and beyond like Michael does. Here is an opportunity for someone to work inside a small shop, side by side with it's owner and see first hand how to make a small shop function properly. That is step 1 in learning taxidermy. Then to get hands on training with Michael on mounting a whitetail AND doing his backing class is really a true opportunity. I speak from experience in this. Michael will wear your ass out, but you will leave with more knowledge than you could ever pay for. I guarantee, whatever the winning bid amount ends up being, Michael will give you more than you paid for, cause that's just the kind of guy he is. Good Luck Bidders. You are in for the time of your life. Knowledge wise and Entertainment wise.
