Trophy Wall offers contest this year!
By Dan Hejl of Pleasant Dale

Last year we asked for more trophy mounts to be brought in, and the member- ship replied! Because of the success of the contest offered at last year’s banquet, we will again be holding the trophy wall contest.The Wall was filled to capacity by mounts brought in by everyone. Last year’s lucky winner of the Rinehart target was Jodi Kuhlmann.

This year everyone who brings in a head or mount will be given one chance at winning another Rinehart target. The general guidelines for trophy wall submittals are pretty simple and have been in place for years. Any bow-killed animal that has been taken within the last two years can be submitted. Additionally, we welcome any mount from previous years that scores near the top of its category.

Heads must be submitted between the hours of 9:00 am and 12 noon on Saturday morning of the banquet. Bring them to the check-in table located near the NBA registration counter. If you have multiple mounts, please arrive earlier during the check-in time.

Your trophy will be handled as if it were our own, but please be aware the NBA and the display crew cannot be held liable for accidents, damage, theft, or otherwise. I hate to bring that up, but it needs to be said. The display crew always looks forward to getting the first look at the mounts, and listening to the hunter relive details of the hunt! It doesn’t matter that your trophy may not score high on the charts. The fact that you kill the animal means that at that moment it was a trophy to you and you should be proud of it. And who knows, you may just come home with a new target!

We look forward to seeing everyone at the banquet!
