    North Island Taxidermist

    Considering getting a red deer head mounted can anyone recommend a taxidermist in the north Island.

    Give him a call @bigbear, https://www.trademe.co.nz/services/o...25be28c6619bde

    Have seen some of his work and it looked pretty cool.

    Nothing is tough about having a 70 lb bow and looking like an uncoordinated praying mantis while trying to pull it back.

    Cats have nine lives-which makes them ideal for experimentation...

    I rang a guy yesterday that was very helpful. Last night while taking the skin off we notice that there is a area back on its shoulder that i must of damaged when i dragged it:pissedoff:
    Shit you dont think about when you have never done this before. Also under the skin around the throat area there was alot of blood under the skin. Going to email the guy at morning smoko and then have a chat and see what he can do

    Hope you have skinned it right back to the last ribs than it could leave plenty of hide in case it needs patching up.
