Anyone going to the Charles Alsheimer seminar in Potsdam?

Postby reeper0697 » Sun Sep 06, 2009 10:10 am

I may be a little farther north than most of you guys, but is anyone going to the Deer Hunter's Seminar by Charles Alsheimer at the Church of the Nazarene in Potsdam this Saturday at 6?
 
Has anyone ever been to one of his seminars? If so, how did you like it and what should I expect?

I went to one about 8 years ago.  It was also at a church.  At my seminar, he spent about 1/4 of the seminar on deer related topics.  He showed a slide show of a rutting buck he photographed.  It was interesting and the photography was spectacular.  He then gave some tips on calling.  The remaining 3/4 of the seminar got a little to "churchy" for my taste.  I'm not an overly religious person so I got a little bored with this section of the seminar.  A lot of life lesson stuff.  Remember to tell your friends and family you love them, etc.  It's good to hear this now and again but honestly, I was there to hear deer stories and learn some tips and not there to hear a sermon.  The venison dinner afterwards was absolutely fantastic!

I could be mistaken but I believe Charlie tailors his seminars to the crowd.  IE:  If he's invited to speak at a church, he pulls out his "churchy" seminar.  If he's invited to speak at a deer hunting banquet, he might pull out his "all deer" seminar.  Someone else would have to verify.

Well this seminar is today and I am very excited for it. Go figure I haven't been feeling well for the last few days. I have 3 of his books and my goal was to have all three finished and to write down some questions I had for him since I had a few that I knew I would forget. Well due to how busy I have been lately I haven't been able to finish the 3rd book just the two and I can only remember a few questions that I had.
 
None the less I feel like it is going to be a great time and I feel very fortunate to be able to attend this and have access to someone of his knowledge! I only wish there were more people from this NY section that were going to put some faces with the names!

Unfortunately its just too far for me to attend living between Buffalo and Rochester. They never have events like this out our way. I still dont understand why. Hopefully they will in the future especially with a new Basspro shop being built in Buffalo.

I had an awesome time! I got to talk to Mr.Alsheimer and ask him questions. I told him I had three of his books and he asked if I brought them because he would sign them. I went out and got them and he signed all three! I also purchased A Guide to Adirondack Deer Hunting (which I have wanted to buy for a while) and he signed that as well.

Since I had already read a couple of his books alot of the information he talked about I had read before, but there was also new stuff to be learned and things I had forgotten reading about.

He seemed like a great guy and took the time to meet with people at his table where he was selling his books and things as well as answer questions. I would definately recommend going to one of his seminars if he is ever anywhere near your area and I would go again in a heartbeat. The pastor also said it took him 2 years to get him there!

Here are a few pics.
