trophy November 2009 POTM Winner!!!

Tough choices this month - real tough. If I could have called a tie I would have ... and sorry it took so long, I was in Montana with limited 'net access. I came home with some good turkey images and also with a nice white-tail buck I spent the last three days butchering. Jerky hits the smoker in the mornin'.

1st - Havalotta's Milkweed

2nd - Mimbrava's Sparrow

3rd - Sage's Reflection

Honorable mention - Kildale's Drone Fly
