Now that all things Deer seem to be in vogue. My wife has decided that she wants some antlers on the wall. She bought me a lovely 2' square painting of a red stag for christmas and now she thinks that the trophys that have been shut away for ages should be on the dining room wal beside it. Great!
I dont have lots of trophys but the ones I have are special to me. The trophys off the first two Roe bucks that I ever shot have been in the wardrobe for nearly 10 years and last night I brought them downstairs and filled the skulls with car body filler ready for mounting on shields and left them on the dining room table in the conservatory to dry. We decided on the layout on the wall for them and tonight I was going to get them up.
I came downstairs this morning and went into the conservatory to feed Max and one of the Roe skulls was on the floor, Max was lying on the dining room table between the Fallow, Munty and remaining Roe skull with a very sheepish look on his face. He had chewed the nasal bones of the Roe skull so all is left is the cavity that is full of filler. The dining room table looks like he has tried to dig through it. The other skulls haven't been touched. The fallow and the Munty trophy have been in there for about 6 months and he never touched them. Oh how I laughed when I 10 minutes later I moved one of the dining room chair in the dining room (two dining room tables) and found that my daughters kitten has used 2 of the leather chairs as a scratching post
I'm getting a goldfish.
On the plus side she thinks we need more trophy's
