"The Rebel Yell!" [Auction Ended]
« on: June 27, 2010, 09:56:26 AM »
   Here in Pennsylvania 147 years ago at a place called Gettysburg, a historic battle was fought.  Northern soldiers met their Confederate brethren in an epic battle that would slowly swing the tide of the war in the North’s favor.  Though the war has long since ended, some mild sentiment still lingers to this day.
            The “Rebel Yell” still echoes across the land from one of our dear friends.  Maybe not in the same way as it was hollered those many years ago.  But in a new, and endearing way…Well then again?  Maybe it was yelled at the army of the North?  LOL!
   With utmost respect for past and present day.  I present this rare collector’s edition call for FnF auction. All proceeds of this auction will go right here to the Fins and Fur Members Bank. Now, about the calI.  It’s a 4-1/4” “Northern Red Oak” enclosed reed (voiced cottontail).  It features a painted reproduction of our very own “LBL Rebel” Bopeye. It’s signed and dated by myself.   The wording at the bottom of the call, Bop’s own Rebel yell.  Has become dear to all our hearts.  So let’s run this auction till Wednesday, July 7th, 2010  ending at 7PM Eastern Time.
Thanks again to Bop and Jim for making this a great site!

Respectfully,

HuntnCarve

Well I figured if you are out hunting, you need to be looking at something alittle "prettier" than Bop's face. LOL!  So I'm tossing in this Painted Oak call along with "The Rebel Yell". :eyebrow:

 So lets see those bids.  It's for a great cause.  With the money ultimately finding it's way back to the members in one way or another.  Only 2 days left!

Thanks again!

For having a great site I will start at $40.00.  Won't even have to squeeze off a round when the critter comes in, just point the picture of that mug at the animal and it will keel over dead.   I know, bite me,  just don't show me a picture of you in them shorts Bops.

I was going to bid but the thoughts of that mug of his being on anything in this house, made my skin crawl. :alscalls:

Congrats Barry. I just hope the boys dont have nightmares.

Thanks to you and Dave both for your generosity, by the way.

Well I'll be hanged[probably literally if I get caught with the call in a Northern state] :biggrin:..  This is too cool, now I can go hunting with two friends at once :biggrin: :biggrin:.  If that thing wails out Dixie when I blow it I'm betting the coyotes will still come for a look see.

A couple of BIG thanks to: Dave for making the call and Barry for being the winning bidder.  I guess that some thanks should also go to Rebel Bop for being selected as the model of the year.

Yep, you got er.
A little tip....any blue letters like that in the forum usually indicates it's a link.
What's a link?, what does that mean?  It's been written to take you to the fore mentioned website when clicked upon. :wink:

Thanks again by the way.
