View Full Version : Can't believe I made it in a outdoor papper

12-10-2010, 05:32 PM
Some guy called me a few months back and wanted to talk and said he was writing and outdoor article and then they called back a couple weeks ago and ask for a few pictures. Well today my wife brings home the mail and in it is a copy of the paper Lone Star Outdoor News and there I was. Holly cow I am so surprised and even online? I kind of feel honored I guess, but really don't know how to feel about it.

Anyway here is a link if anyone want to read it....

Thank you guys I am still a little taken back by all this. I had forgot about that guy even calling until they called and emailed about a week or so ago and ask for a few other pictures than what they had.

I guess that still just didn't think a lot about it until that paper showed up in our mail box today.

Excellent job.

I haven't read the article yet, and you may be surprised, but I'm not. You've taught me so much in my time on the forums, if I had to pay you back for it all in cash, I couldn't afford it!! All I can say is "ATTABOY". You do a fine job out here with us rookies, and this rookie appreciates it greatly. Tight lines, friend.

Good article! Congrats, you are very deserving.

12-13-2010, 04:14 PM
Thank you guys for all the kind comments I do appreciate it.

Cane Pole don't know that you need to go that far as I don't really think if it as famous. I am very glad that so may great guys order from me from time to time and I guess just because of that more people know me and I know them in some way over this computer, but don't think I would call my self famous, LOL!

Of course recognition is always nice for a job well done.

Thanks again everyone,
