Two weeks ago the taxidermist out in Montana called and said that the deer we got last season were ready to be sent our way. They shipped the 3 deer out and we got them yesterday...BIG CRATE

I got them home and we spent the next 1.5 hours figuring out who was going where and putting more holes in the wall than necessary LOL. I ended up swapping out one in the living room for one that was already in the addition room. Real happy with the work, they look great on the wall.

Room looks great! Curious as to how much they cost to be shipped back?
$480 crated and shipped all 3 together FedEx Freight. They were also trying out a 3rd party taxidermy delivery service, I talked to them but their price was RIDICULOUS...they go by mileage obviously but it was going to be $1200 but the guy cut me a break cause all 3 were together and said $900...UMM NO THANK YOU

Sounds like you got a good deal! I think they said it was 600 to ship my moose from Maine to NJ. I just waited until I went up the next year hunting and picked it up. One year we picked one moose mount up when we went on vacation up there.

Looks great. Your going to run out of room soon. Nice tires on the rig too. I'm liking my set that I put on a About a year and a half ago although there are days that I'm sick of pounding around on 10 ply's.

This is the 3rd set of General Grabber 10-ply that I have put on trucks. I got 65,000 miles out of the last set, they are nice and aggressive and they wear like iron. This set only has 7,000 miles on them, on my last scouting trip to Maine I actually cut a big chunk out of one of the tread blocks...pretty sure it was the shale on some of the logging roads. It shouldn't effect the tire but it still bothers me LOL
