  1. #1

    My First Roe Buck back from the taxidermist.

    If you can remember I put a post up back in May thanking Wayne Davies for putting me onto my first Roe Buck,in fact I was so happy with the buck I asked Wayne if he could sort it out with the taxidermist he knows to do a shoulder mount for me,I left it with Wayne & got the phone call a few weeks ago to pick it up,it looks amazing.Im over the moon Thanks Wayne & Paul

    It looks really well with its head turned well worth the effort getting it mounted

    May I ask how it was stored and in what shape before being sent to the t'dmist?

    also, what kind of cost?

    looks great though

    Hi PKL
    I caped the buck when I got back home, and wound the cape around the head, then putting into the freezer.
    (right or wrong that was the way I was shown)

    I sent it on TNT next day making sure there was someone home to receive it.

    It was mounted by Paul Taylor in Dorset, not sure how much Andy sorted that with Paul direct.

    Well done Andy, that's a lovely job. I agree about the brass plaque though, it should have one for your kids and grandkids, so they know the story. That Davies bloke is a useful chap to know! Mind, I think his dog is better looking

    Blindness to suffering is an inherent consequence of natural selection. Nature is neither kind nor cruel but fiercely indifferent.
