Trophy Hunters TV

NJCAA Hall of Fame

   March 1st, 2012

Right now I’m headed to Columbus, Ohio to make an appearance for Lone Star Distribution at the Arnold Classic. I’ll be there tomorrow and Saturday at the Lone Star booth. Come see me.

There’s been quite a few matches here recently that have been close with some disagreement on who really won the fight (Edgar/Henderson, Diaz/Condit). The only thing I have to say about close decisions is that you should never let it go to the judges because you never know what is going to happen. When time expires and nobody has won, sometimes it’s like flipping a coin.

Last weekend, I was inducted into the NJCAA Hall of Fame. I travelled to Rochester, Minnesota to receive the award and watch the matches. Had a great time, saw a lot of old friends, watched some very good matches, and probably the best thing about the trip was the time I got to spend with Dave Klemm. We rode up and back together and just got to catch up. For those who don’t know, Dave was my wrestling coach at Lincoln College. The Linx had several place winners, one national champion and ended up taking third as a team.

Been working out a bit and my body’s feeling pretty good. Kind of getting that itch to compete a little bit.

The show description for this week:

(Airs the week of February 27, 2012)
While hunting for whitetail in south Texas, Matt Hughes visits a local MMA gym to meet fellow combatants weeks before an upcoming fight. And he still has time to kill a south Texas trophy whitetail.

The Bible verse for this week:

Lazy people want much but get little, but those who work hard will prosper. (Proverbs 13:4)

Congrats Matt! Come out West sometime and stop by Oregon. We’ve got some great hunting and fishing out our way. Blessings.

Brian M Says:

Ditto with Daren’s comment Matt. You have a lot of fans in Western Oregon, we are always cheering for you. And there is nothing better than bagging a big Columbia Blacktail Buck!!!

Morgan Says:

Oregon does have great game, but why travel so far when you can bag a great 12 point in southwestern Wisconsin. Haha. sincerely, your Wisconsin fans

Haven’t visited the site for awhile and missed two opportunities! First of all, I live in Minneapolis so we missed you here and I was at the Arnold and missed you there as well. I’ll have to check in more often! Congratulations!
