I hope everyone had a great holiday season, I know we did. We took New Years day off but that was it and have been going pretty hard in the shop. This past week we managed to mount a lifesize bear and five shoulder mounts as well. To top that off, I cleaned out one of the freezer of capes and hides that needed to be fleshed for the tannery, so one day was just fleshing hides. The New Year has started off good, some guys on trap lines are catching some critters and bring them here. We got calls this week for wolves and lynx for mounting and had a cougar come in as well.
This week coming up will be focused more on finishing work, there are a few large projects that need to be finished to make room for more to be mounted. Also we will be headed to Macklin this upcoming weekend for their annual supper and awards and putting up a display for them, it will be a good time.
Here is a goofy looking critter that we did up here last month for a client. It is a Red Hartebeest from Africa, not one of god's most beautiful creatures but I have to admit they have very nice hides. Thanks again Joe for bring your animals to us.
