: Part 5 FINISHING, Mounting a World Class Whitetail Deer

When Larry Blomquist left my shop in February of 2019 I told him this deer probably went together as well as any competition mount I had done.

Refurbishing Old Fish Mounts

Refurbishing Old Fish Mounts

Having started in taxidermy with my grandfather in 1954, I still enjoy looking at the old mounts. I love redoing old fish mounts to allow them to once again hang proudly on the wall rather than find their way to a...
