Silver Willow Taxidermy

I have said this before and I will say it again, were truly blessed to have the customers we do, new and old ones. On a daily basis the phone rings with someone wanting to bring us animals or someone with quite the story about a hunt or just to shoot the bull. Some days the shop can be tough to be in as there are a hundred things to keep on my mind and it seems at the end of the day, none of it got done! But it does get done and when I have a moment to sit back and look at my career, it is not that bad of a job to do.

Anyways now the emotional stuff is over, lol, here is what's happening. Bears still coming in at just the right pace. Some more on deck waiting to get here but hopefully they hold off a couple weeks. We just went to the tanneries last week in Edmonton and picked up a whole vehicle load of deer and caribou capes and the freezers are full with 50lb bags of plaster on the lids to keep them shut. At these times it seems overwhelming but also blessed that we have work ahead of us.

Speaking of bears coming in, Clint Taylor sent us a note saying he is bringing in one that he just took on the weekend. Clint has been a client of ours here for a year or so now and has brought us in some neat animals to work on from his adventures abroad. Here is a muskox that Clint took in Cambridge Bay last spring with Archery gear. Thanks Clint for choosing us to look after your animals.
