Machine Shops in Pennsylvania are a little bit different than shops in other areas of the country. We know that the first day of Buck Season is practically a legal holiday. Every year we get to see pictures of who bagged what but haven't been able to share those pictures with other hunters. So for this year, we decided that the best way to share your hunting pics is have a contest!
Share your pictures in our "Big Buck Contest" on Facebook for everyone to see and two winners will be announced on December 15, 2011. Happy Thanksgiving everyone! Just click HERE to submit your picture.
