    Ribbon Winners are posted at the bottom of the major award winners.

    We might need to worry about the corruption of Cade's young fragile egg shell mind. He wore the same autographed Hooter's shirt around for two or three days. Heck, if I was 12 and had beautiful babes autographing my shirt, I would wear it around for 4 or 5. Way to go Cade! You da man!

    It had been a few years since I had been to Oklahoma, but not much has changed....they still put on a top-notch show! Good people, and the quality in the competition room was outstanding. Nice to see Kenneth, Mickey, Jim P., Andy C. etc. again, as well as meeting some new folks - Randy T., Matt and Paul to name a few (great bird work, guys)! I will be back again, and I hope to see many of you at the Kansas show next year.

    Thanks again to all who helped in putting on this great show, and making the out-of-staters feel welcome.

    Dennis, youre right, wasnt it cool seeing that many accomplished names at one state show? Theres more too, Im just so dang afraid to list some and miss any. They have some of their state masters, and multiple masters, plus alot of names we all read in Breakthrough Mag.

    As for Russ at Hooters, its not that you can handle yourself, your friends suggest you do that often, its that you handled pretty much everyone else at Hooters, too. Lol. Gotcha buddy.

    BY THE WAY...Russ is NOT as short as everyone (MK) says ! And also, Dan Psycho was untangled finally and almost stands upright again.

    Bad news Bill, now you have officially been replaced. Tommy Hall of NC will be the whitetail judge for the 2010 Oklahoma Taxidermists Association Convention and State Championships. Only poking fun with Bill, we all know Bill is a great guy and does a great job. Dennis, it was great to see you also buddy. Andy Campbell is trying to work out something with KS where I might be able to come visit again in March. I also posted some more photos on the OKTA website.

    Dennis, I'm sorry I didn't get to hollar at you before you and the wife had to head back to Kansas. It was a pleasure for Paul and I to meet you and the wife. We really enjoyed seeing your awesome pheasants. - Matt

    Another OKLAHOMA 2009 Post!

    I had a blast at this show and Ken and the board did a great job. Thank you to all the Oklahoma men and women that treated us like family. I want to thank all of you that came by the Hunt Of A Lifetime booth to hang out, help and gave donations as well. Thank you for helping our children and young adults. A HUGE thank you goes out to Jon's Wood Works in Weatherford Texas. Jon gave me a $300 base, to be raffled off at a later date. The base will be raffled off here. I will post the raffle after the Missouri show. Russ has the base in his possession right now and we will make arrangements to get it to the winner. We may have the winner pick up the shipping on it or we may be able to deliver it to a show near you. LOL Not sure about all the details on how I will run it yet but you'll know when the time is right. The base is huge and is BEAUTIFUL! I think it is about 30 x 30. I'll post pics and stuff in another thread as well.

    As far as the competition goes, I think all of the judges did a fantastic job. Ken I am holding you accountable for Oklahoma and contacting McKenzie about getting us reptile gurus an award like the bird, fish and mammal guys get! LOL KERBY if you read this help me out here brother! LOL I know Ken appreciates that. LOL Really I had a GREAT time and if I can, I will be back next year! Except next year I hope to do better.

    The seminars that were put on were done very well. The UTA seminar was fantastic and I really enjoyed Mike's rattlesnake seminar. (Ken a rattlesnake is a REPTILE separate creatures). LOL The judges had a wealth of info to share and I know Yox wanted to hit some of us on the back of the head and call us dummies. LOL Yox would never do that and anyone that really knows him is laughing at this point. Thanks Bill for spending the extra time on critiques with us. Every time we asked a question you were able to describe and show us photos of real deer and everything anyone would ever want to know about deer. Thank you for bringing those fantastic reference photos to share with us. I didn't have anything at the show that was judged by Jody Green but he let us pick his brain and ask questions the whole time he was there as well.

    Now, I didn't take a bunch of pics but here are some I took most are crappy pics but they are still pics. Feel free to take a look at them and here is a link to the photobucket album that contains the pics. Thanks for the great info and great time. See ya all next year and I hope Oklahoma has another great list of judges.
