I finally had the time to set down and open the contestant envelopes. We had better participation this year. Good to have the Alaska crew join us , I think !
Still a very poor showing from the Cheese Head crowd.
Skunkwrestler would get the prize for being prompt as I believe his Envelope hit first.
Steve H from Canada would get the prize for most creative packaging as I got an 8" x 10" glossy of our target.
Here are this years Entrants in the Adult division -
Jack Pine Savage
Here is the Youth contestants-
We raised $83 for the T-man Discretionary Fund with the entrant fee. I thank all that chose to participate.
I will touch base with the committee and structure the prize packages in the coming weeks. Remember we will have 3 places in each Division and 1 random drawing from all entrants who submit a pelt.
Asa Lenon, Wheelers, Bob Jameson, DrakeJ, Melby Fur and Moose River Lures have offered up some prizes. Last years 2nd place Youth winner Brady also donated some traps this summer. I expect the prize pool will continue to grow as I intend to twist a couple arms.
I believe we will trap until early February and ask Pelts be turned in for measurement by February 15 to Judge Bogmaster.
Any questions or concerns let me know,
Good Luck to all and let's have some fun this Winter and thanks for your support !
