  1. Best one I ever saw was "She Got The House" Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk
  2. I have a very basic idea of how I'm going to lay it out. Gotta keep a section for normal garage stuff like mower, lawn and garden tools and such. It has 1 huge overhead door that I want to keep clear all the way to the back wall for bringing in our vehicles when it's going to snow plus customers can back in to lift deer and other critters right out of their trucks. There's a small office that I want to convert to a meat processing room. Going to eventually get one of those cool bot things and build a walk in cooler for hanging deer and stuff. It has a small bathroom in it already that needs to be redone. But at least the plumbing is there. Probably put in a Miter station at some point to do a little woodworking. I have plans for building a 4x8 custom workbench with a mounting stand on each corner to be able to work on 4 deer at a time plus tool and material storage. Plus keep a corner clear for band practice! I got big plans but it's gonna be one small step at a time!!! Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk
  3. I use skirts on all my ladder stands. I got the ones with magnets in the front for quiet entry and exit. I tie the top and bottom to keep them from flapping in the breeze too much. In the front I tie the top to the shooting rail all the way across and the bottom just in the corners to leave enough slack for climbing in and out then the magnets close it behind me. Definitely helps you get away with some movement at least. Only downside I can think of is you can't adjust the shooting rail after their tied but the adjustment bolts usually rust up after a year or two anyway making them non adjustable anyway unless you spray them with something regularly. I even set up my climber with skirts. I keep them rolled up and tied to the shooting rail piece then when I get to my desired height I un tie them, let them roll down and tie them to the platform Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk

  6. My best work! Incredibly lifelike! Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk
  7. Yea but someone else owns it! Lol! It's right next to a property I've hunted for 10 years. About a 150 yard walk from my back door to my most productive stand! The property I have permission to hunt on is only 5 acres but I'm going to talk to the owner of the farm behind us and ask if I can hunt that too. It's about 25 acres Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk
  8. Wish I took a pic of me fitting all my mounts in the back of my little dodge Dakota (minus the moose and turkey) turkey went in the front seat. Moose had to go in the actual moving truck The rest on the dining table Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk
  9. Oh yea almost forgot, the shop came with a house! Hahaha! Guess I'll show you guys some of that too now that we're almost un packed. I'm gonna put barnwood over that god awful red around the fireplace soon. Dining Room The blue light in the bathroom is really what sold my wife on this house! Saw our first deer in the backyard and just barely snapped a blurry pic of it I'll take pics of the temporary basement shop once I get it a little more organized Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk
  10. 15 years living there, 3 years mounting animals! Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk
  11. You have it in your head because it sounds awesome! Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk
  12. Little less than an acre Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk
  13. Yup definitely needs a roof. Part of it is metal and the rest is shingles. Thinking of doing it all metal. Got a buddy of mine who does roofs so he's gonna help me out Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk
  14. Forgot to mention the best part... it's literally right next door to a property I already hunt! My landlord of 15 years (and close friend) lives on the next street over and our backyards almost touch. He only has 5 acres but it's next to 25 acres of farm land. I'm gonna try to contact the owner of the 25 and see if I can hunt that too. Even if I can't, I'll still be able to walk right out my back door and be in my stand within 2 minutes. I've killed more deer from that stand than anywhere. Don't see too many quality bucks there during the season though. Sometimes get a couple good ones on cam in September then they're never to be seen again. Maybe if I start knocking down more does the buck ratio will even out a little. At least that's the excuse I'll use for filling up the freezers! Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk
  15. Right on the Troy/Brunswick line Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk
  16. This is going to be a long process but the process has finally started! My wife and I just bought a house after living in the same downtown Troy apartment for 15 years. And mounting animals in my living room was getting old and frustrating. Luckily the house we bought has a massive garage that will become my taxidermy shop. Over 3000 square feet. It does needs a lot of work and I'd like to share the process with all of you. Not gonna do to much with it over the winter, maybe just some interior demo. Gonna set up shop in the basement for the time being, definitely better than the living room! Progress will probably a little slow but I'll try to keep you all updated. The dog loves it just the way it is though! Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk
  17. First home cooked meal in our new house! My last piece of moose I've been saving for this very occasion. Inner tenderloin smoked on the pellet grill with au gratin potatoes. Life is good today Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk
  18. I'm gonna keep telling myself this as I stare at 2 unfilled buck tags this year! Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk
  19. I would try my damndest to make it Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk
  20. Camp chef pellet grill for me. All the features of a treager plus more and much cheaper. Bought the jerky grates for it too. Usually takes 4 or 5 hours at 160 depending on thickness and how dry you want it. I like it to still have some moisture left. It hurts the shelf life but I package and freeze what I'm not gonna eat right away. Defrosts real quick at room temperature or in the fridge overnight and is ready to eat. Almost always have a pack of jerky with me on just about every hunt and fishing trip. Bought a jerky gun to do ground jerky but haven't tried it yet Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk
  21. Hahahaha! It's definitely time to upgrade though! I didn't measure it myself the garage is listed at 42x75! Bigger than the house(as it should be)! I'll actually be mounting everything this winter in the basement until I put some work in to that garage Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk
  22. Will definitely post pics. We're buying a house with a massive 3000 square foot garage behind it. Definitely needs a lot of work but it's more space than I could ever ask for. No more mounting animals in my downtown apartment living room! Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk
  23. You've been instrumental to my young taxidermy career! Can't wait for you to see my new shop! Should be in next week! Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk
  24. Was a pleasure meeting you Bill! Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk
  25. Just curious. Why put in for maine moose if you have no interest in hunting a maine moose? I can tell you first hand that it's a great time in a beautiful part of this country! Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk
