Heck Mark, you can shoot pigs every year. PBS only comes around every two...
Besides, if you come to the banquet, you might end up with a hog hunt for next year anyway. Hope to see you there!

I remember the sumo's very well.I remember George Hilf,a great guy.I also think I remember Biggie. I remember a tug of war that I played in,Reg members against ass members. As soon as we started pulling,the reg members dropped the rope. It was Barry's plan too.

Can someone tell me something about the one in ohio? I may have been there too. Possibly.

I want to thank you guys for your generous offers.You all are truly good people.

P.S. I got my picture in the magazine the tug of war year. Does anyone remember the "Whitetail Wizards"? I have a jacket on there with our "Colors". The Wizards were pretty well known throughout West Virginia.

The one in OHIO, in 1986 at the Deer Creek Park, it was the very first one. I met people there that are still my friends to this day. I really didn't talk to many people, I was in AWE. I even volunteered to work in the raffle booth a bit. I bought a book and some snuffers from Roger Rothaar and can remember his little son running around the tables, I never guessed I would be guiding that little kid for water buffalo in Australia years later! As I said earlier, what I expected to find there was a couple "big names" on stage telling everyone what great bowhunters they were, boy was I wrong, I renewed my membership as soon as I got home. A couple years later, I applied for regular membership and Bill Hassanmeyer, who sat across the table from me at the first banquet was my sponsor! George Hilf was a great guy, I worked with him in every raffle booth for many get-togethers.

I joined the PBS 19 years ago after spending a week at hunting camp with a few gentleman many of you know... Tom Parsons & Fred Asbell. There were two other guys in camp whose name escapes me but they were all PBS Members and all close friends. Funny thing was is none of them lived within 200 miles of each other! These were just guys whom had met through the PBS and where like family to each other. I joined a week later......

Since that time I can't begin to list the number of PBS members whom I consider family. Many of whom I've never met but spoken with by phone.

One member, Biggie Hoffman even invited me to drive up to his home when I was on a family vacation to Florida and he'd take me hog hunting! I'd never met the guy...still haven't but I'm sure his door is still open as is mine if he'd ever decide to visit Pennsylvania.

That my friends in a nutshell is what the PBS is all about!

That's what I like about PBS it does'nt matter if you know each other or not fellow members seem always willing to help out and go out of their way for each other and fellow bowhunters as well. When I moved to Mississippi I did'nt know anyone but found a fellow PBS that really went out of his way to help me out, our own Joebuck went out of his way for no other reason than I was a fellow bowhunter.I had been an ass. member for about 10 years and just got my letter last nite saying I was accepted as a regular member. Really looking forwad to the gathering in the spring.

I could only go to two banquets, the first banquet in Ohio and the last one in Salt Lake City. The first one had kind of a “Whitetail Court” where a lot of knowledgeable folks were gather and you could ask all kinds of questions. They would auction off stuff at just about any time during the weekend to help support the society efforts. They even auctioned off Barry Wensel’s “side-ways” hat right off his head. Ha! After the function each night, many members would retire to their rooms. Gene and Barry were showing videos and telling stories AND JOKES until late hours. There were about 15 guys in the room… many had just met the twins for the first time.

The 2006 meeting in SLC had a lot of venders, special events etc.and kind of ended similarly for us, watching video footage with the Wensels. Ha! Tradition!!

Well, I must admit I was puzzled by the "professional" part of it as well. I can't recall another organization about which folks have spoken so highly, though. This is one I probably should join!

Another regular here. I just broke many piggy banks and purchased a ticket from Juneau, ouch. That is a LOT of thousands of miles and THIRTEEN take offs and landings to get there to nhang out with these people.

That is twice as many as what I had to go hunt in Mongolia earlier this year with one fo the dudes, Rick "RicMic" McGowan, that I met at my second banquet (or was it the first in Traverse city?) in Charolette, NC.

One of my other often times partners I also met at the Charolette banquest (Matt "Shoeman Schuster) and I hunt with him routinely including right before THIS coming banquet. Any body have any ideas to keep piggy-chops frozen for a couple days in PIT in case I would be so lucky???

Dirty Bill, was that you that mentioned on another thread that your dream animal to hunt is Mountain Goat? If so I will try and bring some extra action pics along since that is my "back yard" critter that I get to hunt most years.

Yes but a Mountain goat is out of my reach moneywise,and unfortunately,probably physically as well. I would love to hunt moose though,which could be possible with proper planning.

When exactly is the PBS banquet? Is it members only?

I'm ready to be an ass member again. Does it really take 10 years to become a regular member..I'm kind of old...I might not make it that long... [campfire]

The last full weekend in March in even years so that would be March 27-30, 2008

2 years but that is just one requirement for Regular membership.

$30 per year for Associate Membership.

Steve,

Why don't you call the Kinney's...they are heavily involved planning the thing, I am sure they know of some good freezer space.
