2007 Hunter/Outfitter Show

Tunica, MS> The show was great! James had a booth set up and treated us like royalty. There were people from all over the world booking hunts, selling merchandise and enjoying a fun meeting of hunters of all types

Friday night he took us all out to dinner at the Grand Casino. Dad, Aunt Marilyn, James, Kecia, Bill, Sandra, Rex and Denise. We ate as much as we could, then stuffed our pockets full. It's not everyday someone else picks up the tab! We figured a way to lose money at the casino, went back to Dad's room and had drinks while he told stories of how my great Uncle Bob dug up the Indian Graves when Dad was a boy. He also told of taking a steam engine train to work the wheat fields of South Dakota early in the war. A fun time of those stories, hunting stories and memories of different adventures our family has shared. The next day we met for breakfast and headed to the convention.
This picture is of Denise, my Aunt Marilyn and Kecia. I thought my brother Paul was behind them but wasn't.

I met a lot of people and was surprised to meet my friend KeesKennis. We had a drink, he got rowdy and started pestering the beer girls.

I got a picture of Trent and James together. It was the perfect opportunity but the Mountain Lion didn't eat them.

Some guy had made a beautiful golden sculpture of Thunderhoof. That pesky Thunderhoof wasn't at the show though. Here is Denise checking it out.

We looked at many interesting exhibits from all over. Knives, Hunts, Hunting Gear, Videos, Sculptures, Paintings, were all on display! Denise liked the Polar Bear and the Dall Sheep. A great day and will post more stuff tomorrow about the show. Next year it is at Las Vegas, maybe we will go.

Looks like a fun time. We went to the Boat Sport and Travel show this weekend. I was disappointed to say the least.

That KeesKennis seems to show up everywhere doesn't he?

Editor said...

amazing fellow!
thanks for dropping by again.
I like your site too.

KeesKennis said...

Hi Rex,
I can't remember much. Did I score?

Editor said...

you have some smooth lines for a water buffalo.

KeesKennis said...

Hey, Water Buffalo come from Asia, That piccie is a proper Cape Buffalo from Africa.

Can you picture me pulling a cart?


Editor said...

Kees, knowing the difference between a water buffalo and a cape buffalo is how your silver tongue manages to get all the chicks.
Of course they all say it's the horns.

Mohawk Chieftain said...

Is Kees the one on the right, or the left? I'm not much of a hunter, so I often get confused....

Editor said...

Kees is the one without a tag. Probably snuck in pretending to be one of those suave and debonair Cape Buffalo

KeesKennis said...

Heh heh.
Thanks Mohawk Chieftain.

Just a quick comment that the Mountain Goat and the Polar Bear is actually a Dall Sheep! Just thought I would let you know.. Otherwise great report!

I would of liked that show a lot I think, Though I think I am more inclined to attend the FNAWS show next year instead!
