So, it has been over two years since I made a post on this blog, but I have a good excuse. A couple years ago I started a small business doing taxidermy work and it has really required lots of my time. I wanted to share some of my work on here and show you what I've been up to. My business is called Wildlife Creations Unlimited, LLC and I primarily do whitetail shoulder mounts, antler repairs and antler replicas. For more information on my business check out my website at www.wildlifecreationsunlimited.com or go give me a "like" on Facebook by viewing my page here. Here are a few mounts to show you some samples of my work.

2012 SYC Turkey Hunt Highlights

I just got back from another trip to Northwest Iowa where I was helping as a hunting guide for the Special Youth Challenge Ministries annual turkey hunt.  The hunt was once again a great success with a total of 26 hunters participating and 8 toms being harvested.  This year's speaker was Mr. Dan Stephany who works for Bass Pro Shops.  He delivered a powerful message from God's Word, and challenged everyone to share with others what God had done in their lives.

If you ever have the opportunity to participate in a hunt like this I would highly encourage it.  You will definitely be blessed while making a difference in the lives of others.

Here are a few pictures from the weekend.

This is my group.  Left to right - Josh Nelson, Scott Jordan (my dad), and myself.  Our hunter was Zach Olson from Minnesota.

Opening Day Turkey Double

I had an unforgettable turkey hunt yesterday with my Dad at our lease. We decided to hunt a clearing adjacent to an area where I had seen some turkeys roosting back during duck season. So we pulled up in my truck early yesterday morning and immediately heard at least three different birds gobbling from the roost. We moved into position in the clearing and got the pop up blind and decoy set up as quietly as we could. After waiting a few minutes I began making a few quiet calls. The birds responded vocally to the first few calls and then got quiet. At that point I told my dad they were probably off the roost and on the ground. Just a moment later I noticed a bird coming in from our right at about 40 yards. Then another bird right behind him. Two more had made their way into the clearing about 100 yards straight ahead of us. The two to our right were a couple jakes and they began to get wary of the decoy, so before they got out of range we decided that was probably going to be our best shot opportunity. On the count of three we each squeezed the trigger and both birds dropped. It was definitely a moment I won't forget, and a great memory made with my Dad!

A big thanks to Kip Feroce and Ferocious Calls for sending me a custom box call to try in the field! Check out his website at ferociouscalls.com for his complete line of calls. What a great product!
