Silver Willow Taxidermy

March 1, 2015

Its another month down in the shop and a new one on the horizon. In the beginning of February I set a lofty goal with about fifteen lifesize animals I wanted to get mounted. At the end of the month I looked back and we came up a bit short. A couple factors were the amount of deliveries we did this month along with finish work. In March though I will finish the shortfall and hopefully make a gain, here's hoping.

Yesterday we made our way to Red Deer to deliver some animals and pick some more up. Along the way we checked out the Red Deer Sportsman show and then went over and saw the Mother Of All Shoots which is the largest 3Dindoor archery tourney in Western Canada. I was pretty neat to see,tons of shooters and tons of targets and they had vendor booths set up. Quinn and I stopped by the Predator Camo booth and got geared up for our trip to Hawaii where we are going to hunt for a couple days as well as holiday.

Here is one of the animals I delivered to Cochrane, Alberta this week. It is a Nyala from Africa which I mounted for TJ Schwanky of Outdoor Quest TV. This mount was custom altered for this pose, as they don't make this form at all. This was a straight wall pedestal and then I had to go to work to make this pose and turn, I think it came out alright. Thanks TJ.
