Took a little while but I was finally able to get my MI buck back to FL and on the wall

Your taxidermist did a great job your buck. Looks great. Congratulations.

Yes, good looking mount. Where abouts in Mich. did you get him? Do you hunt Mich. regularly? And who was the taxidermist?

Central MI
Yes every year nov 15
His name is Mike. He does it on the side.

Thanks for the compliments, I thought it was pretty nice work when I opened the box and got it on the wall.

Thats funny I actually do. Wierd isn't it?

I was talking to the Jays taxidermy guy the other day actually.
Pretty nice guy. He has a good number of FL fish mounts on the wall (He looked at me curiously when I spotted and named the Amberjack right away :D ) and we got to talking about how he likes to get down here as much as he can etc.
The work in the studio looks fantastic!

Yeah he is a very nice guy! I worked with his sister for a few years, I was hoping that he would give me a discount because of that... Boy was I wrong :/ lol.
