Default Got my 2013 WI opening day 9-point buck back from the taxidermist!

I picked up my 2013 Wisconsin gun-deer opening day buck back from the taxidermist today!

This is the deer that I posted on the forums here: http://www.huntingnet.com/forum/whit...ght-video.html

...and also caught me shooting him on video via my trail camera here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yklp2YQ5fSA

The buck's left eye was actually bad & poked out! After I dropped him off, I got a call from my taxidermist that night asking how I wanted his left eye! I chose to have it in as it "should be" versus having it squinted/swolen shut.. lol

Here he is on the wall:

Nice! Take off the red hornlet unless you shot him while wearing it.

Thanks... I'll probably keep that on. It's the CWD/Registration tag. Got another buck on the wall that I left it on...

Nice mount! Plus a heck of a turnaround time! Mine usually take 12 months to get done, two months has got to be some sort of record!

Wow... 12mo is crazy!

My taxidermist never took that long, even when he had a full time job in addition to his taxidermy shop. I just checked the couple of deer I posted to this forum, and I have one from 2010 that I got back 1/21/11, my 2003 came home 1/13/04...

He's not too far from Chicago if you need someone

I think anyone would be proud to put their tag on a buck like that! Congrats!
