    For taxidermy, is there an actual association or organization we can go to and ask about the qualifications/results/experience of the taxidermist we're considering? It's easy for someone to say call Joe Blow about his mount and he turns out to be his drunk brother-in-law who'll say anything for a six pack. These mounts we are entrusting to them are too important to hand over to anyone.

    Jim, You could ask Dan Snowbarger. He is at www.ddstaxidermy.com. Right now he is at the deer show in DeMoines showing off his work. There is a 31 pt 242 inch buck he mounted.

      Oh, and Dan is a retired minister. Won't even drink wine when he takes communion in church. We met in a Barber Shop 3 years ago.

        I always wondered the same thing. I always just asked around and looked a examples of there work. One time I had a guy who said he would do a european mout for me and it was a disaster. First time I called to check he told me it was in his back yard and he was waiting for crittes to cleam it up for him. I told him to flesh it out himself. Then when he was boiling the skull he burnt the tip on one of my tines. I took the skull off of him, bought the kit from Cabela's and did it myself. I was able to fix the tine with some fine emory cloth.

          Check out the National Taxidermists association. My local guy has their sticker in his window.

              I do feel sorry for those rookie cops on the scene who had their backs to the brutality being committed by their senior officer.

              Body cam footage shows Floyd wasn't murdered. The cop kneeling on his neck might have been negligent, but his actions did not kill Floyd.
