Default Re: Outdoor Art -- Surf and Otherwise

The photo of the turkey club above does not do the actual print justice. Turkey hunters see that print and they go crazy for it. Matted and framed, it would easily fetch $300/$400. The Federation engages in these fund raisers using professional auctioneers and they pull in a lot money. Why this pro auctioneer would choose to start with the night's prize offer first, right after dinner, when all the potential bidders were standing in the men's room line, is kind of out-of-character. For a guy who is so cheap (me) that he flosses his teeth all week then ties a fly with the floss to bid and win on this is also out-of-character. Lesson: pee when the others don't.
