    Dennis met my wife and I just east of St. Louis today to deliver my first batch of African mounts and take my elk cape and rack back with him to mount in the future.

    As usual his work is absolutely unparalleled !!!

    Thank You Dennis

    That's a long way from the October 20th post.

    Look forward to seeing the results.

    I would love to post pictures but to be honest I fear that my picture taking abilities wouldn't do them justice.

    Here is a picture of my loaded truck. I got some strange looks and several stares with one driver giving me a thumbs up.....no middle fingers were seen on our 3 hour drive home.

    As I type this Dennis is still driving on his long trip home. He is a really cool guy. 20171203_134457.jpg 20171203_120002.jpg 20171203_134540.jpg

    20171206_204523.jpg 20171204_074436.jpg These two will eventually go into my shop with 10 ceilings but my wife wanted them up and on full display in the house until we get some new ones next year

    As I said.....my pictures do not translate the detail in the eyes, ears and nose.

    Nobody gets these areas right.....Dennis does !!!

    They look good. Bet you are going back through the stalk for each one and when you put your hands on them for the first time!
