[02/19/21] COVID-19 has seemed to have worked its way into every aspect of our lives. Supply chain disruptions are continuing to slow things everywhere, including chemicals used by commercial tanners. Many of these chemicals, produced overseas, have been delayed by shipping issues and shutdowns. Even tanneries have had to endure shutdowns, extending wait times from 7-9 months to well over a year. Continued patience is paramount...
Just completed. Alaskan moose. Salvaged from the bush.
Finished up this nice slab of a crappie recently.
Remember the Reason for the Season. Merry Christmas
Had a customer pick up her european mount today.

ARE YOU READY!? !!!ALERT!!!--REMEMBER if you are hunting in one of three CWD surveillance zones(shown on pullout map in regs book and on DNR website) this year it is mandatory that on the first two days(Nov 4th & 5th) of the season you must have your deer tested at one of the several checkin sites before you take it home.
