Huh? You didn't think that was Zim yelling SPOONBILL all the time, did you? That was me making all the noise, Cletis! Zim is typically the stealthy one.

We are home and just got the truck unloaded! grin More photos!

After fishing on Saturday, we got back to the campground in time to start grilling our wild turkey kabobs to add to the beautiful midday meal they were all working on. BigD was lining up more of his masterpieces. Smoked pork and chicken and his own bologna - right from the smoker too!




(I would kill for a chunk of that bologna right now.)

... and there were more of Coolstucco's world famous kraut balls!

There were two kinds of beans, some fantastic potatoes, delicious foods of all kinds. A beautiful fruit salad from Hrdtoflw's wife Cindy, and lovely coleslaw from Cletis' wife Elizabeth. Just look at all of this stuff! Many dishes made by fine people - I wish I had names to give credit for them all.






And BigD made a dutch oven peach cobbler for Saturday!

And I just got a shot of some of the turkey kabobs before they disappeared!


Let me top off this set of photos with one of a plate of good eats, resting on the edge of a shelf, glistening in the sunlight again!


More to come ...

Patrice, there is enough food on that plate to feed me for a week. I sure miss getting to gorge myself on all the great foods at this get together.

Believe it or not, instead of taking a nap after that meal, there was a beaver skinning demo, there were raffles and silent auctions, and finally a kids trap setting contest!

I believe KansasKoons is in the front of that group, doing the skinning. Hardtoflw and his wife Cindy are facing me and smiling.


These are the prize piles for the regular raffle ...












More to come ...

Here are some shots during the raffles:




Here are the silent auction items ...




Here are the prizes for the kids' trap setting contest ...




And here are the kids, working hard at their sets!






And this appears to be some serious judging taking place.


And the winner is ...
Maybe someone can fill in the names of the kids who participated now that the photos are here!

That's it for me. I hope you enjoyed the photos.
It's champagne time for us!!!

Well, we are home, with full bellies, as I sit here and reflect on the week past. As always, we had a blast. For the spoonbill fishing that took place in my boat, we had close to a 100% catch rate, which is great. Several first time snaggers got to real in at least one spoonbill. I lost count on our fish total for the week, but of the 13 tagged fish from all involved in my boat, the total weight is around 550 or 560 lbs. Carlis helped pad the total with his 59-1/2 lb. spoonbill, which was the biggest tagged by all of us!!! Will get some photo's up in a day or two.
Now it's time to get ready for our next adventure. We will head for Wyoming, in the morning, to get our new Rhodesian Ridgeback puppy!!! Woooohoooo, here we come Wyoming!!!!!

Mike, we loved your little corner of the world and all of the people in it.

KansasKoons and Lee, I'm glad you enjoyed the kabobs! That is my favorite way to cook wild turkey and have the opportunity to share it with friends.

Sharon, I hope you had a fantastic birthday weekend! I will cook you some squirrel someday when we can get together and visit!

I sure would like to be able to attend one of those spoonbill parties. I cant imagine the great time you all had. The folks and
the food I see displayed is absolutely unbelievable. If I can swing it I am going to do my best to attend next spring. If the wife doesn't get any better its hard to get away.

It is firm when fried, and flakey when grilled. Smoked, it gets firm like salmon.
We drove home , to east central Mo. yesterday, then left again this morning. We just hit North Platte Nebraska, and I am done for the day.
Zim, a New Glaris cabin fever would really top off the evening, but it looks like a bud light will have to do. I would never make a truck driver!!
