Silver Willow Taxidermy

February 6, 2016

It has been a bit since our last posting, I hope that is because we have been busy. The last couple weeks has been spent doing finish work on many big projects which we will post up at later dates. Some of the pieces include a cougar, grizzly and then some deer heads. The big push was on to finish all the animals for the Provost Fish and Game supper which was held this weekend. We put up a display of our work again this year for people to view. It was a great supper again this year with lots of variety of food to choose from.

We also made a few trips around Alberta picking up and dropping animals off. We made it to Calgary, Cochrane, Sundre, Edmonton and Lloydminster in the past couple weeks. While we were in Calgary we took in the African Hunting Show where we talked to a few outfitters about hunts. It would be lots of fun to go to Africa one day from the things I have been told about from clients and the outfitters we talk to.

Here is one of the animals I delivered in January to Lloydminster. This was done for Weaver Order Buying and is hanging in their front office when you walk in. Tip to tip this steer was five feet. They waited until his hair was prime condition before they brought him into us. I customized the form to a wall pedestal which showed off the nice colors.
