Take your bow and a quiver full of arrows, and go out into the open country to hunt some wild game for me.

Finished mounts....not to bad...kurts buck is a beast!!!!! Just the overall size of the body is impressive.
I'm extremely happy with the way my buck turned out! I pretty much mounted it my self besides some minor detail he help me with. if I had a question he was there to help. I'm really looking forward to mounting my gun buck

Well just mounting him today it took me from 5:30am 430pm with an hour lunch mixed in ..lol I'm sure that time will get less and less the more deer I mount. It's definitely something you cannot Rush if you have no patience do not get into taxidermy! Lol

Looks Nice.
