When the Christmas decorations come out- I let my wife do her thing. She has to live with all the wild animals all year so if she has to doll these mounts up to help her cause for a couple of months, I have to go with the flow. Does anybody else have a spouse that incorporates their trophies into the holiday decor?

Yes, she'll put red beads and hang stuff of them. I don't complain one bit, and truthfully, she does a great job decorating them. I'll have to take pictures this Christmas and post them here.

lol.. I read the thread title and took things more literally...

I pay thousands upon thousands at Christmas.. booking next years hunts, buying new rifles, etc (thankfully the wife prefers kimbers over jimmy choo I suppose)..

I wish the only price I had to pay was some lights strung across my cape buff euro mount! :D :D :D

My wife asked me about that this morning!


NO WAY.







Now, if she will pay for the next buffalo hunt and the head can hang in the 95% of the house that she controls, then she can dress him like a Yule Lad all year long.

My wife loves to decorate for Christmas and I’m more than happy to supply her with things to decorate! Next year, the good Lord willing, I’ll provide a Sable, Nyala and an Eland for her to work her magic.

South Africa, Texas, Alaska - hey, they count. Trust me!
Every year this happens and my wife truly has a ball doing it.

I consider it the welcome of great memories and I toast the memory of each hunt.

I admit it - I really enjoy it all.

Happy Holidays to you all!

Come no SD, it is not as if she is hanging tinsel on you!

I seen a post saying that you do taxidermy in WV. Where are you located in WV and do you have a price list?
I'm going on my first safari in June.

Hey There,

Im looking to book my first African Safari for 2024 for my 40th birthday. I've never hunted Africa before, but was going to head to SA with my wife for a week then see her off and then stay and hunt.

Saw your safari come up as a recommendation and wondering if you had any time to chat.
Thanks!
Steve
