Well I made to the next level received my first blue ribbons an a best in category for this entry in the Gsta convention To me it's not so much the ribbon but more the score sheet and critiques over the last few years that mean the most to Me. The advice I have received from different judges I have applied and it has worked for me. I thank them all for helping me better my work and pushing me to take it higher. Fred Barilla was the first judge to really help me out I owe a huge thanks to him! For this piece I owe a thanks to Mike Vernelson for being there when u had a question about sculpting this tree! He was a huge help. The critique I received at this years show from Bryan Epply will go a long way. His seminar was incredible and his knowledge of whitetail I will apply to my mounts starting tomorrow!!!! Thanks everyone!!!
