    Rockin G and Top of Texas Taxidermy had a great evening at the DSC dinner last night. I couldn’t believe how cheap the hunts went at the auction, most went for about 1/4 of the value.

    A 338 Lapua mounted on the back porch could have taken some hogs in the west field we saw all lined up!
    I’ll bet Carrie has something in mind with her new toy?

    Yes, it was a great night all the way around. Very excited for Carrie’s big win! After the Rockin G booth erupted into cheers when the winning ticket was announced, seeing some of the surprised looks and groans when folks realized who won was hilarious! Little do they know, Carrie can run a rifle like a champ! Given her new extended range capabilities with the Lupua, I guess I better rethink how much I tease and play jokes on her!! But in all seriousness, the banquet was well organized and well run and I hope it continues to grow. Like Gizmo said, hunts that were auctioned went extremely low, might be worth the trip to the show next year for some of you.

    A coastal brown bear went for like 12, the rest were deer hunts, hog hunts, and bird hunts. Most went for only a couple hundred bucks.

    That does sound like stuff went cheap! Lubbock has theirs in early March. Last time I went (2 years ago) most everything was over $1k. I’m excited to go this year and see what everything goes for. I’m saving for Buff with my Dad and Son (PG for my son) in 2021 so I won’t be buying anything this year.

    A quail hunt would have been great for me! Just hoping my old GSP makes it another season.
