Do it yourselvers

I’ve had two funny stories told to me this week about do it yourself taxidermy projects.

First Story:

Parents had bought this man a learn how to mount a Pheasant book and kit. He was super excited to try it out! He was thinking he could save money and have his bird mounted way faster than a taxidermist. Two days later he had his finished product. He describe to it as a interesting piece of art that maybe a kindergartener created! The legs were crooked and the bird wouldn’t stand up straight. He told me that we will gladly pay a taxidermist and wait patiently for the finished project for now on.

Second Story:

A young boy found a buck dead. The boy wanted to keep it in his house, but of coarse it was still quite smelly. Parents didn’t want to pay to have it preserved so ask for advice. I gave them the steps to clean it. I warned them it would smell and create a soup of chunky rot. The boy was very excited to try this out. It only took a couple of days before the smell couldn’t be tolerated any longer. They gave up and just cut the rack off.

This is just two of the many stories I hear about. Sometime you have to try it out for yourself to appreciate the hard work and artistry a taxidermist puts into his work.
