Wow, what a first class show. Last year I went Friday and there were not a whole lot of deer there, this year we were there Saturday and OMG!!!! I have never seen so many bucks 160+ in my entire life, UN-believeable. Got to visit with Lee and Tiffany, Byron Ferguson, Don and Kandi Kisky, the Whitetail Freaks guys, and a pleasant surprise T-Bone and Nick Mundt from Bone Collectors who were a last minute addition to the show!!! Lee and Tiffany were awesome as usual, and Tiff's mom Linda was as sweet and nice as she always is, really enjoyed talking with and seeing them again!!! Tried to talk Don and Kandi into another chat, may get that lined up some time in the future, great folks!! Had the pleasure of talking with T-Bone, wow, what an absolute stand up guy. He took time to talk to me and Dmaverick on two different occasions and treated us like he'd known us all his life, thanks T-Bone, you are a class act!!! Bottom line, great show and I'd recommend anyone that likes to see big deer and big name hunters check it out!! FYI....the line to see Lee and Tiffany had 100+ people in it ALL day, rock stars I tell ya!! Bunch of pics to follow....Anyone else that has classic photos feel free to add them to this thread if you like!! '94

Yeah I was there today too. Talk about crowded. I guess I should learn my lesson because I always go Sat. and it's so crowded its hard to get the chance to visit with some of the people. I did get to meet the Vortex guys and finally look through their glass. Also talked to the HCO team about NOAH a little bit. Talked to the HB guys and Jeff told me the story on the velvet buck he took this yr in North Dakota. I didn't even bother with Lee and Tiffany the line was soooooo long. I just walked buy and watched the video for a while...OKAY I did sneak a peak at Tiffany..:tongue: I am thinking of going back up tom. hopefully it won't be as busy.

They need a bigger place to have it. I say that every year, but way, but this year, WAY TOO crowded. I couldn't imagine what it would be like if someone yelled,"Fire". I stayed an hour and just couldn't take it anymore. I was disappointed that Elite didin't even have a hat to sell.

It was definitely crowded, they need to make the isles about 10 feet wider so people can actually look at the booths. They did have that whole new area this year opened up where they had alot of the deer and the 300 round going....that wasn't open last year was it? They are definitely going to need to consider opening up more space, which is a good thing for them!! '94

OMG, my buddy and I were standing up on the stands at the popup looking out over the floor.....unbelievable how many people were there. I'd like to see the attendance number for the show, I'd also like to see a count for Lee and Tiffany's booth!!!

That buck with just the skull cap is one of the most impressive deer I have ever seen in person, it just grabbed your attention. There were higher scoring deer there but that one was the most impressive to me!! '94

94 thanks for the pictures. Couldn't make it out there this year. The pictures helped ease the pain. They do display some stud bucks for sure.
