Silver Willow Taxidermy

September 28, 2016

A little while ago Canadian Forces Base Suffield contacted me about an old buffalo mount they had hanging in the Officers Mess that was in desperate need of repair.

They wanted to know what I would charge to fix all the cracks, clean it up and repair the cracked nose and broken horn. I told them that for what the military does for us every day, we would fix it at no charge and deliver it back.

Last weekend we made the journey three hours south to deliver it. After taking delivery of the refurbished buffalo, Officer Harrison was kind enough to give the boys a tour. He took us through the workshops where they fix all the military equipment and let the boys climb in and on the tanks they use every day and took his time to explain how they work. We had a lot of questions and he answered them all very graciously. The boys loved it and I have to say, Jen and I really enjoyed it too.

Thanks to the military for everything they do for us and for giving us an unforgettable field trip through the base.
