Silver Willow Taxidermy

March 8, 2014

I think winter has finally given up its' grip on us here and everyone else in the country. I maybe shouldn't speak too loud yet. It has been a long couple weeks with these temps that have been keeping us indoors and working, who needs that. On the upside to that we have been making some progress and things are moving right along here in the shop.

This week coming up, I am looking at sewing up a lifesize Nyala and will be doing some finish work on other critters. The finished animals have been moving out of the shop as well and the showroom is looking empty so the as we finish, the showroom won't look so bare. This week as well we will have a very large piece coming in an old bison bull that is estimated to be 15-20yrs old, not looking forward to skinning that but it is a part of the job.

Here is a Gemsbok from Africa that Dean Herron of Esther, Alberta brought last spring. Dean picked out a really nice base that we put some back hide into and it also has a granite top. Dean has many other mounts getting done here right now, watch for them. Thanks Dean!
