as you get ready for the hunting shows
just thought i would put a few thoughts out there as you get ready for the hunting shows in january -
its overwhelming entering a hall with thousands of operators , all with the "deal" of the century , world class camps the highest scoring animals in africa- here are a few things to remember/consider as you plan ..
if you are going to book a hunt start looking now through websites and hunts so you arrive with a pretty clear list of what you want , perhaps who you want and what the going price and conditions are for what you want
dont be sucked in by the "well we have just this one left and they may never be available again" there is a once in a lifetime deal out there almost every day , if one slips you by , dont worry another will be coming shortly.
dont ask about the biggest one shot last year , ask about the average - if someone took a 100 pounder in their area guess what - that one is dead and there probably werent two of them ;)
most of all , have fun , meet some new friends , enjoy the atmosphere , artwork , gunmakers and other offerings - its a great opportunity to just mix with some likeminded people -
i will be at both dallas and reno and would welcome the opportunity to meet some of you while you are there ,
best wishes for the christmas season ,
