Sorry for the delay, working on getting the finalists up now.
I was having a great time yesterday with good friends in the great Northwest. Thought I'd be back in time to post the results but got stuck on a tarmac in an icy plane and only got back home after midnight.
And yes, all of the judges had a very hard time picking the finalists!!!
There were so many great pictures to choose from which made judging this contest more challenging then ever before!
The nine finalists pictures were selected by three judges, myself, AH Sponsor and donor of this hunt Arc Africa Hunting Safaris and AH member Velo Dog whom I would like to thank for taking on this challenge. There are three photos from each judge represented, which are posted below in no particular order.
Registered members of AH who have been members prior to March 10, 2015 may now place ONE vote for their favorite picture from amongst the finalists (judges and finalists cannot vote). To place your vote, reply in this thread by including in your post the number of the picture you are voting for. Voting will take place from March 16th until March 23, 2015 (ending at noon Pacific Standard Time). I am extending the voting by one day as I am posting the finalists a day late.
The finalist with the most votes when the contest closes will be the winner. In the case of a tie the winner will be selected by the panel of three judges from the pictures that have tied. The winner will be announced on March 24, 2015 in this thread.
Thank you again to everyone for all of the amazing entries and good luck to the finalists!
Hello Milan, I just watched your video on disassembling/reassembling the CZ 550. I have spent days looking for something like this. I now have no reservations taking apart my rifle. I like to do this with all my guns so I understand them "inside and out". Thank you very much for the information. It is greatly appreciated.
