Anyone going today want to check on an SCI auction item for me? Pretty sure my bid will get surpassed today.

Wish I could make it to San Antonio but I’ve got other stuff on the calendar.

So cool to see the young ladies get gigs.

Oh my. The thought of my wife and mother-in-law wandering around a hunting show makes my head spin. Especially without me. We're living in crazy times!!

Glad she ran into y'all. She said they had a blast!!

My son and I had a great time, thanks Carey for the tickets. Got to meet Jeff and Smart, bought a T-post camera holder from Art. Good crowd there and had a ton of people coming in. Got to see Christie with Big Racks Taxidermy, she did an excellent job on my sons Ethan’s wall pedestal mount. Great show and killin season is right around the corner.

Go to TTHA website, select “Buy Ticket” for the show you’re interested in attending, you’ll see information about the show including dates and hours as well as ticket price.

A word to the wise, if you know you’re going to a show, I recommend buying your ticket(s) online. The lines in Houston on Saturday weren’t exactly long, but were interminably slow as each ticket buyer was presented with a schpiel about the benefits of membership, etc., etc. Nearly pulled my hair out.

Thank you, sir, I am both flattered and humbled by such high praise, especially coming from one who is a class act himself.

Hahahaha those were Saturday night. After a late night Friday and a looooong day Saturday, we were looking forward to a few beers and a short night without going anywhere and driving. Never been to a hotel where the bar area was closed on a Saturday night so that was a surprise. The front desk said "staffing issues". With the two big groups in the hotel that weekend I bet they lost out on some major revenue if Friday night's crowd was any indication. Luckily, ThisLadyHunts had her "St.Bernard cocktail kit" for margaritas on the rocks... and saved the short evening for us..

Good time in Houston. I thought the crowd was short on Friday and pretty good on Saturday and about average on Sunday. Visited with Smart after I did the seminar so close to him that he had to listen. Poor Guy...
Saw Keith and met a lot of new folks at this show. Quite a few new exhibitors that were really nice, including Forloh, an apparel company and Pat Newcomb with Nucom Outdoors that makes a great, small, lightweight portal blind. Dale Stewart with Stewart Wild Game out of Beaumont and Houston stopped by and gave me some samples of his GREAT products. One of the most interesting products was from Jakt Gear, he has a new tagging system that won best of show at the recent ATA.
Steve and Kristine Holden Longbaugh was most impressed with Eye Wise trail cameras that have animal ID capabilities.
See you in Dallas.
Adios,
Gary

We purchased 2 of the Jakt gear magnetic slings. Also purchased the face covering that attaches to your hat and stays off your face. Purchased the anti fog product. Bought a tactacam.

Almost pulled the trigger on the Redneck soft sided blind. Still debating.
