    Matt if you can contact Harliduck (John Otto); if he has another book he'd be willing to sign I'll give $100.00 to the fundraiser. I had to work last night and never got a chance to up my bid on #23.

    Thanks for doing this man.....it takes a lot of work. You're a good man!!!!

    To All Members Of The Refuge Forum,

    This is my first post on this site, as I just registered this past week. My first contact with this site was through a link to MASTERS post regarding the Bendell Family Auction.

    First of all I want to say what a GREAT site this is..... LOTS of info on every aspect of duck hunting, I.E. Eiderkings blog on his Alaska waterfowl hunts.

    Secondly, what a kind gesture to host this auction for a member, who most have never met.

    I was a bidder on #7 (Redhead Decoy/Modin), and was unable to raise my bid due to a real TOUGH day at school yesterday..... HOMECOMING! Arrived at 5:15 A.M. to chaperone the Juniors/Seniors decorating crews. When I got home...I crashed, with the intention of checking bids before Midnight. Well, I woke up at 4:30 A.M., and you guy who missed re-bidding know what I mean!

    I was the donor of Auction #36, and I want to let the person know who won, (Cattail Sunrise), to send me a PM regarding HOW you want them shipped. USPS, UPS, and I will send back the exact shipping costs. Also let me know if you want insurance.

    This pair of decoys are black cork, over-sized, with a pine bottom board and pine tail piece all attached with water-PROOF glue! There is plenty of cork left to detail your personality into them. Drake head is painted, as it was one of my first ones I use for a guide/reference. The sleeper is my first attempt at these.

    These were done in the school wood shop before I retired from teaching. My job now is a substitute, but I work every day and really still enjoy working with the the kids.

    Again, JOB WELL DONE!

    Thanks,

    Art :amen

    Matt...no contact needed...I would be HONORED to send out another book...I think I still have a couple around...will send this week. THANKS Mike for an outstanding donation to such a worthy cause. Outstanding job by all (Matt has a Gold Star in heaven for his work) and I hope all the hunts/decoys/ect come with some amazing karma. Should be some great posts here as they all get used.

    Mike..can you email me your address? Harliduck@aol.com

    Thanks! And most important...continued prayers for the Bendell family...
