I got a call the other day from our taxidermist, Chad Johnson, saying he had the bucks from this year done and that he was going to be coming down to drop them off. I couldn’t wait to meet up with him and get my hands on the Sticker 8 again! Also he was bringing back Skyler and his dad’s early season North Dakota bucks from Central Dakota lodge.

I met up with Chad and grabbed the deer heads, filled the truck, and headed home to get them on the wall!

Everyone was thrilled with the way the mount’s turned out. Gotta love those thin, early season capes on the North Dakota bucks!
