    Dave, you better get at it if you have that much already!(LOL) I don't want as many wts as I had last year, that is why I went up again before season. However, the way it looks, I will be close! About 200 pieces is all I really want to do in a year's time and I an over halfway there already with gun season looming on the horizon!

    Started slow but the rut seems to have things jumping in southern middle TN this weak. Will be cutting it off in another weak or so at this rate. As far as advertising, never realy did any. Put up a few cards at the local checking stations the first year and a few years later, word of mouth brings in abt all I realy can handle at this point. Dennis I took your advice about the ear butts as I was skinning one out tonight and took a lot of ref.pics of the muscle detail. Learn't A LOT! Thank's

    I usually do 170 -180 total pieces per year. Last year i got in 280 pieces. I'm in the 160s so far this year. But i got about 6 or 8 African safaries due in in the next month or two.

    I hope everyone is taking in more than anticipated. We had the busiest November ever. A little cool weather early in the year here in the deep south can really get hunters pumped about hunting!

    I was expecting a lot more than I have received. So fare 8 euros, 6 wt mounts and 1 soft tan. A few more say they will be by we will see. I am not holding my breath

    My question is does anybody receive any wt mounts after the first of the year?
