My father-in-law shot this 6x7 bull at my buddies ranch in Eagle Nest in 2012. The Taxidermist turned a pot of boiling water on himself and spent several weeks in the hospital. He's a diabetic so he later had to go back for another couple weeks when his foot got an infection. During all this the taxidermist lost his lease and all of his stuff was put in a storage locker. All the hides were destroyed blah blah blah. 3 years later my father-in-law has his horns, a mannequin and a set of eyes. Hopefully I will get him a cape soon and we can get him on the wall.
