Most of you know me as the Dunsinnan Estate Stalker and a grumpy old man too, but what a lot of you maybe don't know is that I'm also a taxidermist of over 30 years standing.
As I'm getting on a bit now and realise the day might come when I can't be dragging dead deer about up in these hills I've decided to market this other skill of mine more prominently than ever before and get myself "out there" a bit better.
So I've just chucked a full year's trade membership payment at SD and I've asked John for advice as to how and exactly where to place my trade entry. Until I get that done I'm putting it here on this thread so do please have a look at my site. Give it a chance to load fully as it can take a bit of time :-
NOTE - THE POST HAS NOW BEEN MOVED HERE AND THE COMMENT IMMEDIATELY ABOVE WAS MADE BEFORE THE MOVE
Read it all and look at all the pictures and I'd appreciate all your comments on what you think of it - pi$$ takes and insults included as I've got a sense of humour.
I'm shoving it on here now to speed up exposure as much as possible and let you know about it quickly since nice clean bucks are now shootable and some of you might want trophies done.
Please send me tons of work as I'm ever so poor and need the money.
Although I'm in Scotland I get masses of specimens sent by next day delivery from all over the UK. It's easy and quickly enough done and I get the mount back to you once it's finished. No deposit required. I e-mail you photos of the finished thing and, if you like it, you pay for it and I ship it off to you. Can't be much fairer than that.
I do the whole range - birds, mammals, trophy heads and fish.
Now listen up - if you manage to get a nice trophy head and you want me to set it up for you make sure you give me a call BEFORE you cape it out. I'll talk you through the easy way of doing it how it should be done, and if you bleed the animal DON'T split it from throat to sternum like so many guys do. If you want it mounted bleed it right out by taking the red pluck out with the gralloch. That'll do the trick and not mess up the front of the cape by cutting it about at all.
Direct contact for me is 01821 650254 or 07877 094171 or email@example.com
And I'm genuinely available 24 hours a day every day of the year and I'm hoping I'll get calls from you.
All the best,
