Trophy Status

On a different outdoor page a young man had caught a large bass while ice fishing here in good ole Minnesota.   He asked if he should mount it and if it was of mounting status.   This was my response.
There is no size guideline to indicate what a trophy shall be.   The size is irrelevant.   It's the story, the hunt, the experience that created such a lasting memory and in return makes your victory such a trophy.

Fuzzy Pants and a Blizzard

Fuzzy Pants - Check
Slippers - Check
Noisy Rattle Reels - Check
White Out Conditions - Check
Thirty Below Wind Chill - Check



For every gobble that echoes from the tree tops, for every whitetail that gracefully glides through a cornfield, and for every bluegill that surfaces on a resting dragonfly, there is a sound.  A sound, not a voice.   We need to listen, and be their voice.
