Before I put up a knife for auction, I would need to know where the money is going and why.
Knives are how I put butter on my bread, and I ain't rich!
I truly am just a poor ol' country boy.
I was on our local NWTF committee for 5 years and each year the local NWTF would actually BUY the knife from me at a very reduced rate to cover my expenses and time, minus my normal profit, and they kept everything OVER my costs.
Toss that around.

I'll toss it around, throw something out there and let me bid on it! Do you understand that sometimes we just need to suck it up and give a little or give a lot! You must have a blem, or something that someone lost their deposit on that we folks would just drool over. You do some great work, lay it out sir!

Sounds like you have a lot in common wiff a lot of us. :cheers: Especially the owner of this site! And he does all THIS for us for FREE! How cool is that? :cheers:

Lets work something out for a later event! How's that sound?

I'll stay off my soapbox about all the people that donate dollars and time on this site and don't even have the potential of making a dime off of what they do. But they do it anyway. It's awesome!

kba,

I'll assure you that this place doesn't work off of a budget like NWTF (size wise), nor does any leader in this place pull any of the money for special hunts to cover any type of costs other than directly (not indirectly) to getting those guys out there to hunt.

NWTF is first and foremost about raising money at those auctions. This place is about providing hunts for the less fortunate.

I still understand your position, and understand that the cost of the materials and your time would be your cost directly. And if you don't want to do it, be sure that no one is forcing you.

I am just always going to push to make sure everyone on here understands that there is a HUGE difference in collecting money for hunts on here, and the way that other larger organizations such as NWTF and DU collect money. There is a night and day difference.
