    I'll be there fella's I hope to meet you and your friends, I won the grand prizre gun last year. This is a great opportunity to support QDMA and also win or purchase some great items.....

    One day soon my Grandson will be thrilled with his new Browning gold series 20 guage deer gun....
     
  4. Wish we knew ealier, may have been able to go. Promised my wife a work day here, painting bedrooms (taking a break now!!).

    Dean, report back on what goes on, sorry I can't go with you guys.
     
  5. antler worshipping brothers reunion

    I met that dastardly antler worshipper Dean tonite at the QDMA banquet, also got to meet his brother. Three hours of swapping stories and meeting old friends and making new ones.

    I think we have a new plan for Indiana, on a raffle I won the 2006 QDMA gun of the year. It is a Weatherby in 300wsm with a leupold 3x9 scope and case. The rifle is number 49 of 100 made for QDMA.

    Well now that I gots me one of them high powered deer guns, we think we should get us a rifle season......lol.

    Just kidding guys...........it was a great time, hope you all plan on attending next year.

    Imagine Dean and I together in a room full of deer hunters and we could feel the love.
     
  6. S'pose I could get that gun from you Joe?

    BTW...to show you what kind of A-hole Joe really is he donated a 2 day youth turkey hunt to some lucky kid for next springs' youth turkey hunt. Gee, what a jerk!!!
     
  7. You're the worst, Joe. :lol:
     
  8. Dean is a great guy!!!

    After I had won the rifle dean offered me a whopping 25% return on my investment in the raffle! I had purchased one(1) chance @20.00 and Dean offered me 25.00 for the rifle.......

    Now Dean if you go to our neighbor to the south and want to christen the rifle in another OBR State I'll sure let you "rent" it ........20.00 for the season........lol.

    As far as the turkey hunt, it was a two day hunt for the winning bidderevrything but License included. The winning bidder (375.00) asked me if he could transfer it to his 12 year old son. That brought a smile to my face, I get to introduce a youth to turkey hunting AND.......... With the new youth turkey hunt next year he gets to do it the weekend before our season begins! The only drawback for the 12 year old.....probably the guide!

    A turkey will comit suicide!
