I’m actually planning to spend this weekend moving a few things around instead of hunting to try and work the winds better.

Agree...the rare optimism came to a fruition for ol Jack in that pic..


I cleaned it up a little for you Jack. Sorry I couldn't do anything for the ugly in the background. Photoshop only has so much magic in it.. Well I guess I could put the Corona head in this pic..

I'm no pope and young official but came out at 168 3/8, native low fence and minimal protein fed.
35" mass
Only 16 5/8 wide
23 6/8 on left beam
G2-G4 on right side were all over 9"

I'll probably do a thread for him with full score sheet and history included soon. May even add the video if I can figure out how to edit the audio so I can make it PG rated.

Your gonna hurt my professional photographers feelings critiquing his work

Does photo shop have a magic pen to get rid of the dust on my shirt? I didn't realize I had pulled a Sherman Klump and rubbed my belly on the dusty truck. Too much excitement I guess.
