Slam Slates

Postby nsporleder » March 13th, 2009, 6:39 pm

 I had these slates made by a guy in Missoury(Jerry French).They had pictures of each Leg of the wifes slam and my friends that helped take them.I made up the box and mouted them in.I also made a fancy turkey tote to set on top of the box.I gave it to her for Chistmas that year and she didn't care for it at all.
  Might be the reason she is now my Ex. See what you think!

Nice.  Very nice.  I especially like the tote!

Those are beautiful calls and that is a great idea. I just hope that wasn't the only thing you gave her for Christmas...my wife would divorce me for that too! [:D]

I think it is great! Nice job!
 
I am surprised that anyone (your wife) that had enough passion about hunting the turkey and completing the slam would not like that keepsake/memory of the hunts.
