    Default Kodiak blacktails finally made it home!

    Well after waiting on a taxi to get my capes home for 2 years,I took them back after everything I've been through with my second hack taxi.Took them to Dan out of Artistic Wildlife Taxidermy out of palmer.Can't say enough of his work,He is a true artist at his job.Only waited 6 months,and he had to give me a cape(with no charge)and send it to his tannerie after 1 of the 3 were not mountable.I am more than happy!Gave me a great idea for my euro sheep sitting around.A rock floor pedestal he sells and 3 rams is my next project,just need to get lucky and get 1 more cape this fall!

    Dan is awesome! Great guy to BS with while you drop your stuf off too. I've got a caribou rug being made by him, and a full body cross fox he's doing.

    Man, that's a great display. Sitka's in late fall coats are just beautiful with the contrasts in color they display.

    Do I give my friends advice? Jesus, no. They wouldn't take advice from me. Nobody should take advice from me. I haven't got a clue about anything..

    MR. Kotton, I was so impressed with the picture of your Blacktails I called the wife over to look. All she could say was WHOW. I said hang on I'll try to find the picture of the mamoth Bear he harvested this fall. Well, I had to go to your profile.Found it and again WHOW. So then I look at 3 pages of your album and I say WHOW. Great stuff my man. Happy New Year.
