I just finished this big fella up today. A few days of drying and he'll be ready to head home with his owner. It was a ton of work but wow what a lot of fun!

That is very nice Gizmo!
Reminds me of my daughter's first car, an old Jeep Wagoneer. She found a set of longhorn mounted horns in a junk store and had me mount them in front. Hilarious in Boulder, CO...the people's republic of hunter haters!

Great job! If it looks that good in photographs I can imagine how impressive it is in person.

My friend.....You continue to impress with your taxidermy skills. You certainly are doing very well. I can just imagine in the future what your work will look like as you hone your skills. Keep up the good work! You and I will be hunting together in the near future.

Mule deer and Colorado elk seasons almost done! Hunters driving farm roads, looking for racks, their PH driving them along, I ask that you not pull into my drive. The buck behind me, on the boundary line of the GMU somehow knows. The hunter laughs, I would invite you in to see my Searcy rifles but social distancing prevails, darkness arrives and the buck slides away into secret tree grove...

Ellwood Epps has 1 box of 25-20 in stock. Look them up on the web. They are located in Orilla Ontario.

On the vx6 2-12 what does the zl2 stand for?

Thanks, Oliver

Many thanks for re formatting my article for the forum

I served my time in both the bush and during the bush war

I hope it did it justice

Education is where it is at - without it the wild places are history

You - sir - are well placed to make a difference

Good morning friends

i‘ve taken to heart a suggestion to tell my story about a lion hunt 37 years ago. ‘I don’t know, but am thinking there are site rules as to posting and file type. Three of the four posts (chapters?) are done, I took time away from here to write up the story. I have a couple of photos too.

also, I’m going to dissemble the rifles and see if Butch may have signed them. I’ll let you know.
