880" of elk in one pic.....

Stopped by my taxidermists shop to discuss with him the details on a 300 RUM project he is having me build for him. Walked through the front door of the shop and saw this:

My 466" bull on the left Dan, my taxidermist in the middle and my brothers 414" on the right. He said that they would be finished by next weekend, then I will have to hire some hands to get them both safely hoisted up onto the shop wall.

Anyway, it was quite a sight to see when you walk through the door. I am sure they will have the same effect on the shop wall as well!!!

By the way, the blue tape on the tips of the main beams are for the employees at the shop. Seems they were sick of running into them. They all told me they liked working with this type of critters but they will also be happy to see them go so they get half the shop floor back!!! LOL

Just thought some would like this pic.

Will post more then they are finished.

Damn, that just makes me sick. I'm gonna have to take my little 6x6 down off the wall and throw him in the garbage now after seeing those two together.;);)

They looked great in the field pictures and I was wondering what they would look like mounted. They will be AWESOME;);)

Congrats again to you and Korey.....fantastic bulls that you can really be proud of. And, it's a good thing your shop is as big as it is.

you know I used to like you! Don't you? :(

Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever.

Our Lord Jesus said that as it was in the days of Noah and
also as it was in the days of Lot so it shall be in the days...
It's happening again!!! God sent to us His prophet, and His Word
to this generation and we once more are rejecting it as was prophesied!!!

---> As promised, God Sent His Prophet to us!
