    I was going through a free booklet I picked up in Springfield recently. Lo and behold, there is an ad for Cody Redman Auctioneer Service, 1046 E. Arlington Ave., Decatur, Il. 217-620-4926...just in case there is someone on here that needs to get ahold of him. :)

    I think his antics were going on when I found this site in `04, but they continued and got more outrageous for at least 3-4 more years...maybe more. I tried searching the archives, but nothing came up.

    Does anyone remember when he invited the whole refuge gang down to his Shawnee cabin and leased duck or goose club? Unfortunately, according to cory, the cabin was torched just a week before we were to show up...even though there was no mention of any fire in the Southern Illinoisan, or any other area newspaper.

    I'm pretty sure Zettler has a treasure trove of DrylockBBB stories.

    A lot of old members are gone / non-posters anymore....Greybeard, Drylok (made a few enemies here I believe), DrylockBBB (ditto, but it was somewhat intertaining), John Q Public, DuckNazi, so on and so on and so on....

    That kid killed me. No matter how many punches he took he always came back for more. Interesting times.

    Thanks for posting that info. I'm getting ready to retire and have nobody interested in carrying on with waterfowling. Will be moving out of state and have a garage full of decoys, camo material, boat, etc. A really good auctioneer might come in handy!!
