I had the honor and privilege last year of taking part in the 2019 Dave Sherwood Memorial hunt. I ended up tagging out on a 5x5 bull with nice dark antlers with white tips.
Being my 1st after years of trying I decided to do a shoulder mount with him. I took him straight to Joel at Blackriver Taxidermy. He did an outstanding job on the Euro on my 2017 bear, and he was on the way home from were I was hunting so it just worked out perfect. Just like with my bear, Joel was great about sharing ideas on how to do the mount so it showed him off, but more importantly fit in the limited space I had to hang him.
I got the text last week that he was ready and made the run south Sat Morning. Wow, pictures do not do Joel's work justice. I am very happy with how he turned out and Joel managed to preserve the New Kids on the Block frosted tips hairstyle this bull had. Anyone needing a full mount, Euro, or a rug done, drop him a line. He is well worth the drive to Rochester.


Finally up in his new habitat

Great bull.....and nice pup! Also like the T&G paneling. :thumbsup2:

I always thought growing old would take a lot longer.....

So, when does that "Old enough to know better" shit kick in???
I've learned that pleasing everyone is impossible, but pissing everyone off is a piece of cake.
