    Found this book at Barnes and Noble. People around me couldn’t figure out why I was laughing so hard! Might make a great gift for a hard to buy for hunter!

    I have a friend who has a wonderful trophy room in which the Celtics could play half-court ball with spectators. He has an excellent bar, and serves wonderful wines. He does at least three international hunting trips a year. And he has the worst taxidermy on the planet. Probably pictured in that book. His leopard looks like road kill draped over a small saw-horse. His Lichtenstein Hartebeest is only identifiable by the horns, etc, etc. If I am going to do something beyond a Euro, I want best of class - that means so lifelike it could yawn, blink, or stretch.

    I’m not sure why it makes me laugh so much, but I have been chuckling to myself all night about this. Walking into a great trophy room full of horrible taxidermy looking cross eyes at you. . My wife thinks I’ve gone crazy!
