Celebrity Handgun Hunt 2008

Well our latest Celebrity Handgun Hunt is now history and a great hunt it was. 55 handgun hunters from all over the country converged on the famous Y.O. Ranch in Mountain Home Texas for a 3 day hunt for charity. The hunt turned out to be an excellent one with the weather pretty much cooperating with us and after all was said and done we raised over 18,000 pounds of meat for the needy. In the 19 years we have been doing this we have donated well over 200,000 pounds of meat for the needy. That's a lot of chili. This is an event I look forward to each year.  Kase and I both attend and do our best to add wild game meat to the larder. Kase took a huge Black Hawaiian sheep and a Sika deer doe, while I took a 7 point whitetail buck and 4 whitetail does. Several of the regulars on our forum, including Jason Puff Daddy Parr, Charlie Herf, Larry Farley, Sean Harper, Bill Firman, Andy Rowe, Scott Boggs and Doug Faith also did their best to add to the total of meat taken. If I have forgotten anyone, please forgive me.
