Show Time and Other News

Journal Entry: Thu Feb 19, 2015, 7:47 PM

General Updates

Feel like I never update what is going on in my life enough.  Basically got a full-time job that I work overnights and work 3 days a week which is awesome!  I've really been enjoying the free time as well as the job.  I was finally able to quit my part-time job of 8 years which just felt like this huge weight is gone now.  With that been a busy little bee and finally things are kinda settling for now.

Taxidermy Show Time!

Show time is around the corner and that said, I've been very hard at working on MANY show pieces this year for the show.  I will admit, this will probably be my biggest show to date since I so far have around 5 entries in mind which is a lot since I usually enter 1 to 3 entries on average.   Biggest thing is this year I'm jumping to the Professional Division with my Coydog and Bobcat since I feel my work is ready for that category and that I've bee improving a lot.  The other big things are my first bird entry and the fact our show is having the first ever 'Rogue Taxidermy Division' which I will be entering as well with a few entries!  Those on Tumblr are very aware of what I'm entering and working on, otherwise you folks won't be seeing the entries until after I do their shoots after the show.

Garden State Taxidermy Association Taxidermy Convention- June 26th -28th
Additional Information can be found by clicking this!

According to my mentor, supposedly the National Taxidermy Convention next year is suppose to be in PA at Seven Springs Resort?  If it is true, I'm going to be looking to go to that show since its a MAJOR show and that they don't normally host it this close to my area.  I need to find out more details but will be looking into it and rooming with some folks from my association if they go too.

Otherwise busy with my entries.  Probably after everything settles with the show that I'll be going ahead with producing premades (soft mounts, small shoulder mounts and small lifesize mounts) to sell each month to keep me busy with taxidermy as well as making some extra money on the side too.

Fur Items and Etsy Shop

All my hides from the fur auction are currently at Moyle Mink Tannery.  Managed to grab tons of coyotes, a ranch mink, gray/red foxes and other critters as well.  The prices were pretty cheap this year and because of it I got a major haul in.  They won't be arrive back until around mid to the end of the summer but will be announcing when they arrive so folks can get ready for when they are listed.  Some of the critters are already listed since I did try out hometanning some so they are going for pretty cheap because of it.

I've have been in the mean time working on animal parts jewelry to sell in the shop so that I have a nice stocked shop.  Some of the jewelry includes coyote claws, fossilized Mosasaur teeth and ranched fox claws.  I'm sure I'll be adding more besides those but if jewelry is your fancy, do check out the shop over the next few months for stuff!

Lastly I'm possibly looking into adding some MOUNTABLE hides to the shop too.  Recently got an offer from Wildlife Gallery with my bobcat that they are offering a deal that offers FREE rush service on orders.  With that, I'm working to get my personal stuff ready for that time but going to try to nab up some raw/salted pelts to include so I can sell them.  This is great for those seeking mountable pelts since I can guarantee you that the stuff I'll be selling is mountable to my own standards which are pretty high.  Most of the hides will be of wild animals so they will be affordable.  If you folks are looking for particular animals, do let me know so I can figure out what I should be buying!

Information/Terms and Conditions

If you are providing a pelt, it need to be taxidermy quality to my standards.  Please provide me details shots of the eyes, nose, ears, lips and butt area.  If your having trouble looking for what makes the pelt mountable, feel free to ask!
If you are unable to provide a quality pelt, I'll more than welcome to help you with finding a pelt.I can accept raw/frozen animals, turnaround time will be much longer though as these pelts will need to be tanned, tanning fees will be applied on top of additional fees for me to process your pelt.If something goes wrong during the tanning process that ruins the pelt, I will refund you your money.
I am not responsible if your pelt or mount once it is out for shipment.  Once it is out of my hands I have no control over if your package makes it to its final destination or not
