Concepts in Observations

As long as many of us can remember, we’ve been attracted to wildlife. Your first introduction of silhouettes may have been in a book or a road sign depicting a whitetail deer, moose, or bear. Millions of years ago, you would have needed to determine friend from foe; collecting data by the silhouette was probably the first tell. One can feature a hunter setting out...

Competing

Competing

Let me start this article by telling you that most of what I’m going to say is opinion-based, so feel free to choose what you want to believe and what you don’t. Also, I want to say that my opinion about competing with whitetails has treated me well the past few years, allowing me to win array of awards, including 2019 World Champion Whitetail. It is often...

This was such a bad idea! I soon...

A Fish Full of History

A Fish Full of History

We have all received that call from a customer asking us to restore an old mount, and by the way of experience, we have learned in most cases to say no. Thus began my day in February 2020 when I took such a call from a customer asking me to restore a sailfish mount from the 1930s. I explained that...

: 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. It should have—I already had a ton of hours fleshing, tanning...
Habitat for a Spotted Seatrout

Habitat for a Spotted Seatrout

We have been busy lately doing spotted seatrout for the fisherman of the saltwater shallows. Most of these folks are fishing in grass flats with oyster beds and various tree debris with roots, or just an old snag...
