Congrats for sure! I have a very well worn copy of Hunting for Handgunners filled with pics of you and stories of your exploits.

Congratulation Mark - you are right person for 2018 Conklin Award, hope you will win it!
I also think that members of this forum should be proud to have person like you amongst us. I found your articles very inspiring and often I use them as sanity check for my own, personal opinions/ideas. Tnx for that

NOT KNOWING ABOUT THE CONKLIN AWARD, I GOOGLED IT. THE 2018 AWARD WAS GIVEN OUT AT THE DALLAS SAFARI CLUB GATHERING EARLIER THIS MONTH. A PRESTIGIOUS AWARD, BUT ALL THE WINNERS HAVE BEEN RIFLE HUNTERS. DO NOT KNOW WHY MARK DID NOT WIN IT THIS YEAR BUT HE IS CERTAINLY DESERVING OF THE AWARD.


Sorry guys, but soap box time.

This kind of gets my blood roiling... I do not have a problem at all with rifle hunters per se, as indeed I also qualify as one myself because I hunt with rifles, handguns, shotguns, bow and arrow. etc. I am pure and simply: A HUNTER.

BUT...It almost seems like we as handgun hunters as a group are looked down upon. I sincerely hope that I am not correct that this "disparaging" view of a person that hunts with a handgun had anything at all to do with the decision for that award to go to a rifle hunter, but I really gotta wonder.


Mark, since you were one of the five finalists, putting you on a par with the rest of them, you should have received that award; if for no other reason than the fact that a handgun is the more challenging weapon.

Don't get me wrong, I do not want to take anything away from the hunter that received the award, I am just venting.

I met Mark years ago and he was one of the nicest guys I have ever met. A class gentleman.
