    Dennis at Artistry of Wildlife just delivered and helped me get them up my New Zealand trophies and they are all I had hoped for he has done super work and I know he really worked hard on them as the stag was the biggest he has done and so was the Tahr (#12 SCI). I would not trust my stuff to no one else and cant wait till I get those 20 plus African trophies that I just got with Andri Fox Safaris in his hands in August!! So sorry guys Dennis is going to be busy for awhile and I am going to be taxidermy broke:cry::cry:. Next year I need a BIG CAPE BUFFALO!

    It was a pleasure Buckdog . Where else can you, and all my other clients, know who's mounting your trophies. Me the owner each and every one. Who's doing the finish work , another world champion Jamie. Every trophy's soft tissue and airbrushed back to life done by him, He does everyone. And who delivers and helps you hang them. Me again the owner or Jamie who has been with me now going on 15 years. THAT"S what makes my studio so very different that all the rest of the big box studios. No one but World Champions touch your mounts ! Thank you for trusting us with your memories !

    After looking at that amazing Tahr, I'm wondering if Dennis and Jamie could help Trump out with his hair.

    Tom, Dennis did the ram also it is a very big one also if you want i can upload a better pic of it. The tahr was amazing and the cape is very beautiful as i huned the south island in late may which is rut for them and going into late fall early winter so the capes are way nicer. I beat on Dennis to get it puffed up like it was when I shot it as it had a herd of about 30 girl friends and boy did he come thru! PM me if you need info on NZ my wife and I spent 2 weeks there and both love NZ and the people. I would strongly suggest to anyone that they hunt the south island as there are no tahr or chamois, etc on the north island. watching the bull tahr puff up their manes for the rut is amazing.

    Hi Buckdog
    That would be great if you could put a picture of the Arapawa Ram on here in behave been thinking if I get my Red Stag early that might be another animal I could go for.
    Thanks Tom
