Every day I try to make a point to stop in over at Archery Talk and see what is going on. Generally I’m browsing the classifieds, checking out Bows I can’t afford, or I’m skimming recently active posts for something that catches my eye.

Yesterday, while killing time during my lunch break, something caught my eye. I clicked through to check out The Worst Display of Taxidermy. Inside the thread I found photos of a pretty rough looking Turkey.

I’m relatively new to hunting and love the idea of displaying my first deer (if and when I actually kill one). I’d love to get a shoulder mount done but due to the cost, a Euro Skull Mount of some sort is a much more realistic option.

Being as particular as I am about certain things, showing up to the taxidermist’s shop to pick up the Archery Talk Turkey would have ruined any chance of me ever getting work done again.

Later in the thread the Hunter informs us that he was able to get a refund of $320 but cautions you to do your homework before turning over a trophy animal.

In a case of sheer coincidence, I watched last nights episode of Duck Dynasty and immediately thought “I wonder if Jase did the work on that turkey, it looks a lot like his cow!

In case you were wondering who did the work, it was later revealed in the thread that Barry’s Taxidermy in Reinholds, Pennsylvania was credited for the mount.
