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.
