Got my 2013 buck back
« on: September 13, 2017, 07:37:12 PM »
 I shot this buck back in the 2013 general deer season. Along on the hunt was my dad, mom and brother. In 2014 my dad passed away unexpectedly and one of the things I really wanted to do was get this buck mounted to add memory's to the wall that I will never forget. Well in Late October of 2015 I decided it was time and took the antlers to the taxidermist. My wife picked the mount up today and boy did it bring a smile to my face. Looks better than I could ever imagine.

It turned out amazing. It's very comfort feeling walking into the house and it being the first thing that catches my eye. So many precious memories reminding me of past experiences.

That is excellent work.  Congrats to you.
