I sent him an e-mail and have not gotten a response. So I guess we are most likely out of the trophy chase with a member not participating/reporting. I see team seven is waiting to hear from LAlongbeard as well. I'm not trying to be nasty, but really if you give your word to faithfully participate you should follow through. I know it is all for fun, and the world won't end, but I am one who expects people to keep their word. Now if there is a legitimate reason then that is life and we all fall subject to that, but still let those you promised know why you are out. when Gobblerman announces the winning team I will remove the trophy avatar from my screen name and transfer the image to any member of the winning team who wants it.
If I recall right Goulds is still hunting.
We have heard from tom21NM, page 3 of this thread, so I know he is around and with all of the log in problems this forum has had I would not be surprised if he is having log in problems. As for the contest if we win great but if we don't so be it. IMO the contest is supposed to be for fun and to get to know different hunters from around the country and vicariously live through their stories.
As for the avatar. I got the only avatar I will ever want.
I sent a PM to tom21NM and gouldshunter to see if they can let me/us know.
