Yeah, let's screw up a bidding process where the proceeds are going to the Northeast Louisiana Veterans home. I'm sure the vets will think its funny too.

I thought about bidding it up. But I'll have the luck of nobody wanting to bid after I place an $81,000 bid.

Good thing you didn't bid because it sold for $80,100 according to the local paper. It also said the proceeds went to the Northeast Louisiana Veterans Associations Wounded Warrior Hunts, not the Veterans Home. I had my info wrong.

It's to assist in paying for wounded veterans to come to North East Lousiana to hunt. So they auctioned off a duck call to have people come hunt with them...

Don't mean to sound like a prick but just seems like a way for them to look good for doing nothing. Donate a $30 call, have some rich company buy it, money is donated to the wounded warriors which then in turn uses it to bring hunters back to what I assume is a hunt with duck commander.

It was auctioned off for a good cause I can understand that, but who in their right mind would pay that kind of money for a Duck Commander call??? You used to be able to buy their calls for $15 now if you find em for under $30 your doing good. :no: :no:

you are looking at it wrong. They did not buy a duck commander call for $80,000.....the donated $80,000 to the cause and got a call for it. :wink: Most likely it was a tax write off anyways.....

My question is, who gets the tax write off, Duck Commander, or, the winning bidder?????????

I guess it all depends upon who the check is written out to.

So let's say that was 1,000,000 reeds, then lets say (conservatively) that half of their calls are double-reed calls, so that means 1,500,000 reeds over a 10 month period (through the end of OCT)....that is 150,000 reeds/month. lets say the average month has 20 working days...that comes out to 7500 reed/day. the average working day for Joe Employee is 8hrs, so that means 937 reeds/hour, or roughly 16 reeds/minute....

SO...if Si works 8 FULL hours every weekday he'd have to pump out 1 reed EVERY 3.75 seconds....and again, that's being conservative that only half the calls going out of DC are double reeds


You guys really think they work there. It's called tv for a reason. I am sure they got a millions yuppies chomping at the bit to work the line there.

yes, that would be one of the main factors.

If you ask an accountant what 2 + 2 is and he answers 4, he is not a good accountant.
if he answers 5, don't hire him because he can not add.
if he says,"what do you want it to be?", hire him....he is a good accountant. :thumbsup:

And the veterans that get to hunt got a great experience.

I used to donate fishing trips from time to time as a guide. You can write of your time and fuel and that is it boys. The IRS does not allow you to write off the cost of the trip, bait, tackle, etc..... for donated guide trip.

Wouldn't bait and tackle be part of a business expense like a laptop, mouse, or business lunch? You can write off anything just have to find the right person to do it for you like rappers being able to write off making it rain on strippers because it is part of their image for their business.

This is the reason I made the post that I did. Seems like someone was trying to run the bid up and couldn't pay.
