What an excellent idea! Other Sportsmen's groups across America are already lighting up the airwaves inquiring about how to run similar contests in their areas.

Great event.
Great hunt with friends.
Great antics from protesters.
Great meal and social time after the hunt.

All in all, a very rewarding, entertaining day.
