Oh Mr. Anthony, CONGRATULATIONS!!! I will let you explain the details but all I will say now is I was at the NY Bowhunter's banquet tonight and your named was mentioned for an award and it made me honored to have done some taxidermy work for you! And you bet your ass I bragged that up to our table during dinner!! Congrats again to a great person doing something so beneficial to a great cause!!

Ain't it nice to know IMPORTANT folks? I know I got friends in low places, what did you go and do now? Spill the beans.

Sure is Herbie! I just wish he could've been there to accept the award cause then I could have finally talked to him face to face!

I wasn't going to say anything Jake. But what a small world it is.
Last week I was told I was nominated for the County rep of the year by NYB and won it. The VP told me someone would accept the award in my name. I was invited to the dinner, but it is a monster trip for me and I had the FNRA even the same weekend. Its nice to be recognized for work done.
Even nicer to have friends in the crowd :) .

Yeah when they started announcing it and were saying the stuff about Rockland County and that the winner had helped out at a soup kitchen this past fall/winter, I KNEW who it was gonna be! I can imagine how long of a trip it would've been for you coming all the way up there. It was an hour and a half from me, but I think I'm really going to benefit from it. We had a booth set up for my uncle's taxidermy school and my bird work. Surprisingly there was a lot of interest in my bird work (didn't expect it from a bowhunting banquet) and the guy who was set up next to us makes custom arrows and is talking about coming out and bringing me 5 birds one day alone! I didn't have much to donate to the auction since birds can't be sold, so I donated a couple taxidermy gift certificates to be auctioned off. We didn't stay for the auction so I don't know how much they ended up raising for NYB.

Jake, smart business decision. Always good to support those that support you.

Thanks again guys.
New York Bowhunters is a organization that I believe in, or else I would not be involved with it. I am humbled that they would consider me.
April 21st myself and another NYB member are doing a Adaptive sports Expo at Helen Hayes rehab Hospital in West Haverstraw,NY. We will be promoting the sport of archery/hunting and demonstrating the draw lock device for those convalescing and those visting the expo.
