Ben's comment as of 11/02/14: With 18 deer in so far
Well on opening day we had a good start. Two bucks in already and one of them is going to be hard to beat. My predictions for this year because of all the vegetation is this could be not just a good one, but one that will be remembered for a long time. The bucks I have been shown on trail cameras are exceptional. Now all the customers have to do is bring them in. Everyone has been complaining about the amount of trimming they have to do around their stands. Food this year is not a problem for the deer. The big buck today was 184 pounds and had 171 1/8 inches of bone. Because of split G2's the Net was 154 5/8 green score and that's going to take a special deer to beat it. Last year we didn't have a buck over 200 pounds, but this year I think we will. We are extremely busy at the shop with customers getting there deer scent, or fixing what broke already and last but not least still getting a new bow. On the second day I weighed a buck which was the 3rd heaviest buck in 19 seasons. 284 pounds live weight and 224 pounds field dressed. Many of you in the contest have heard me say over the years, "I am so blessed to have this business this time of year, when I get to put my hands on some real class animals". It's cool to be able to be excited, share other peoples stories even when you haven't even hunted yet. I haven't hunted in two years, but this year I plan to, be the good lord willin'.

In the contest there are 18 winners (9 Young Adult & 9 Adult)
If your not in the contest you get treated the same. We just put you
on the Wood'a-Could'a-Should'a list. 

This is the contest board from 2103:

     This is the Age 12 to 18 Young Adult Board

           This is the Adult Board Ages 19 & Up

If your interested, here are my political views read on. If your not interested,
like I say below, you deserve what you get and have, and don't read them.

47% of the people in this country do not pay taxes and probably voted for
Obama, because life works for them just fine. Of the 53% majority left, only
65% of them vote because the other 35% of them don't vote because politics
has them upset for one reason or another. YOU DO THE MATH! We all know
the definition of insanity is not changing anything and expecting a different
result. The average family income is down OVER $4800.00 from two years ago.
If that doesn't get your attention, then you deserve what you get. What
matters, the only thing that matters is we need a change. Who knows what,
who did what, who said what, who promised what, doesn't matter, WE NEED
A CHANGE, and if we don't get it, well it's not like me to say, but,
NOT  BE  AS  GOOD  IN  2015  !
Four days before the election I had a typical
non-voter in the shop and I kind of got in his face. He said he never voted
unless the person he wanted was running. I said who do you want? He said
Ron Paul, but he's so pissed off at politics in general he is not going to go
write in Ron Paul's name. I don't get it. He sure had a whole bunch of opinions
for a person that doesn't vote.

(Get your butt out and vote - some of my relatives
and yours gave there lives for your right to vote - cherish it.)

They say on the internet, I'm opinionated. Yes I am. I
try real hard to make this a better country and run my
business correctly. Life must suck to be a "Post turtle".


While suturing a cut on the hand of a 75 year old rancher,
who's hand was caught in the gate while working cattle,
the doctor struck up a conversation with the old man.
Eventually the topic got around to Obama being our president.
The old rancher said, 'Well, Ya know, Obama is a "Post Turtle''.
Not being familiar with the term, the doctor asked him what a
'post turtle' was. The old rancher said, 'When you're driving
down a country road and you come across a fence post with a
turtle balanced on top, that's a 'post turtle'.

The old rancher saw the puzzled look on the doctor's face so
he continued to explain. 'You know he didn't get up there by
himself, he doesn't belong up there, and he doesn't know what
to do while he's up there, and you just wonder what kind of
dumb ass put him up there to begin with'.

It is not a NEW WORLD now, but it is a world where BAIL OUTS should
have a country that we need to protect and cherish, The Constitution
of the United States and our Bill of Rights. OUR FREEDOMS.

I'll keep my country just the way it was, my freedoms the way they were
when I was growing up, and you can keep all the CHANGE in a dark and
unsanitary place.       
There is no freedom without capitalism and there is no

capitalism without freedom. I'm concerned about Small
Business. I'm concerned about my kids future. I'm really
concerned about my three grandchildren. And most of
all, I'm concerned about are countries future, because of
the current leadership, if you can call it that.
***************   GOD *** BLESS *** AMERICA    ***************
**************FREEDOMS *** ONLY *** HOME  ***************

PRAY for our people in the Armed Services - They are the
only part of our government I personally trust.



In November you have the choice to be part of the
problem or part of the beginning of the repair of our
