Its has been awhile since I have sat down at the computer to put together a blog . We have been very steady in the shop, mostly catching up on some back projects that were delayed at the tannery but were getting some of that back log along with some new stuff mounted up. Even though it is not hunting season yet, we still have some animals coming in, I guess that comes with the business and I probably wouldn't want it where nothing came in and only during seasons.
Some of the animals that have been mounted this past little while in the shop have been a lifesize stone sheep, lifesize dall sheep, some African animals and a quite a few rugs, mountain goat, grizzly and wolves. There are three of us that keep the shop rolling on a regular basis and some days four would be great but we have a good crew here that cares about the final product.
Here is an example of one of the finished products recently out of the shop. It is a greater kudu and it shows what teamwork does. I mounted it and then it went onto finishing where the painting was done by one of our staff who nailed this paint job. I can't say enough about our staff.
