    You didnt have to tell us you were using Pauls sign in. Thats better than telling everyone when Pescado is in Mrs Trout though.

    I received the Photo DVD from the photographer but I can only view them as a slide show. I will see if she can share some single shots with me to post on here unless others have some pictures they can add.

    I only have two I can access so I will post them here.

    One is a Desert Bighorn Sheep mounted by Scott Derenski and Steve DeBoer

    and the other is the Whitetail Deer Mount that I did.

    Feel Free to add pictures from the show and hopefully I will get more to add for everyone to enjoy!

    Can someone tell me why Dennis' (*) name shows up as "name withheld" on the Awards? Is he wanted or something? Hiding from "Vito in Jersey" perhaps? What gives?

    I'm in the witness protection program ;D

    SSSSSSSSHHHHHHH !

    But seriously it is at my request, I don't like the fact that Everytime your or my name is posted anywhere on the net, it's searchable by every tom, dick, and harry, in the world and I LIKE MY PRIVACY.
    This is at my request, and Ken Edwards kindfully accepted request.
    I AM my work and my business, name is all I need to say , simply mention it and that will show up.

    (name withheld) has surely inspired me. It is great to have seen his work. It surely has this novice thinking.
