I hope everyone had a great holiday season. I know we had a quick but good few days off. I worked up to the 24th and then was back in the shop on the 27th.
The elk hunters are now going again and no word yet on any big bulls being taken. I think it will remain the same for the remainder of the season just because of the snow. There is still the odd deer trickling in but the main load of hides is now at the tannery. I just made the grueling drive down to Kalispell and then after the hides were dropped off, I went 80 miles further south to pick up some bases for some upcoming mounts we have to do.
We have also been going pretty hard trying to get ready for the Macklin Wildlife supper this weekend. We will be taking a pretty good load for a displey so if your there, make sure to stop by and say hi.
Here is a nice short-haired white-tail that Ben Nutting brought us. I really like doing the short haired animals, there is just something about them. Thanks Ben.
