    Im very honored and proud this morning to have found out that Top of Texas Taxidermy was chosen as the 2018 Taxidermy company of the year through the Amarillo Awards Program. I didn’t know that I had been nominated but apparently several customers had submitted the company.

    It’s unexpected moments like this that make all the sacrifice and hard work I’ve put into building this company a bit easier to swallow. To be honest I’ve been a little down lately as starting and building a business can be very frustrating at times. It is very nice to know that folks are noticing though. I’ve put my whole heart and soul into building my companies and this was a much appreciated boost.

    I just called the trophy shop and ordered a real big trophy to put in my office. I’m having it say in self recognition of all your efforts. Then when my boss asks what the hell that trophy is for I will tell him my arm was hurting from patting my own back! Lol

    No sir. I’m still trying to find a way to bring them down some more so everyone can afford to have top quality at an affordable price.

    You'll be getting something from me sometime soon for sure. I was hoping to PM you a few weeks ago to drop off a mule deer, but I struck out on my Utah hunt.
