Still have their antler's

A little off subject, but two questions.............................

1. Are mineral/salt licks legal to hunt over like bait?

2. Does your buddy have a taxidermy business locally and if so what is the name of it in case I ever get my first buck and I want it mounted?

Thanks.....................

Baiting to include salt and mineral licks is legal in KS for hunting. Dan Snowbarger is my Taxidermist hunting buddy. He is a retired minister and has done one buck and a turkey with 5 beards for me. He is on vacation and will be back in a few days. You can reach him at 913-390-5632 in Olathe. That's a nice pair of "horns" there.

Forgot to add that deer pretty much stop using mineral licks by September. They are great to get summer pics though because you don't get so many 'coons, 'possums and groundhogs on your camera.

Sheds

Hello,

Nice sheds. If you are like me, you probably have piles of them laying around, and don't know what to do with them. Here's what I did.

Take a couple of sturdy hooks, and put them about 6 feet apart into studs in your garage, or den, etc. Buy a piece of chain, about 8 feet long, and hang it from the hooks horizontally. Leave a little sag so it looks nice.

Next you take the sheds, wrap a small peice of wire around the bottoms of them, and attach them to the chain. Hang them upside down. It will create a monster shed display. Mine is awesome.

If you want a pic, I'll send one.

Shed Holder

Here's a pic of my shed holder. The sheds are held to the chain by a small wire wrapped around the base of each antler.

Let me know if you like it.

Here is a pic or two my trailcam took last week.

On another note My best hunting buddy has the best German Short Haired bird dog I have ever seen. Buck has a great temperament, good manners, and loves to hunt. I am looking for someone with a good AKC female to breed him to in exchange for a pup. I will attach a pic of Buck if able to find it

Del,

Nice dog, I remember growing up and we had a german short hair (Acey). And some nice bucks there. I just got my camera's out last weekend and will check them this Sunday. Plus put us a mineral site too.
