    First time for everything

    I got lucky enough to see this in person. The pictures are amazing, and it is even better in real life.

    Utah Axis Deer Taxidermy Recommendations

    I know, I cooked up some backstrap and tenderloin at the hotel the first night after I killed it and it was awesome. I did have another bag of meat that got to me the day before some of it was still frozen, but all the backstraps and tenderloins were in the bag with the capes.

    Utah Axis Deer Taxidermy Recommendations

    I was coming in from Maui. There was an issue with our plane, so then they put us on another plane. The bags never made the switch. I did get the bag with the meat and capes last night. I put the capes right in the freezer so I am just hoping they are ok.

    Utah Axis Deer Taxidermy Recommendations

    Just thought I'd update the group on my results. It was a super fun hunt and got a decent buck, best part is I was able to do it with my wife beside me. Now for the crappy part. I attempted to bring home the meat and capes from this buck and a doe that I want to make a rug with. I checked the...

    Transporting Skull on a plane

    Yeah the meat I would still bring with me in as a checked item in a cooler. Just shipping the skull and antlers via ground is closer to $90, real rough estimate, who knows what it will really be when they weigh it and depending on how big the box is.

    Transporting Skull on a plane

    Do you think it would be possible to put it in the cooler with the frozen meat and do the whole thing as one checked item? You may be right in just shipping the thing. I'm looking at UPS and I think I could ship it for about $90 vs I will pay $60 for the checked item. But an extra $30 to stop it...

    Transporting Skull on a plane

    Thanks all, lots of good suggestions. I am trying to avoid a skull cap, I just love Euro mounts. Also shipping is an option it just costs more than doing a carry on, or checked bag.

    Transporting Skull on a plane

    Well, I have a buddy in Oklahoma who has talked me into going out there and shooting a white tail this year. If I do end up getting a buck I am curious as to how to transport the skull back to Utah. The meat seems easy enough to freeze and put in a cooler and pay for the extra checked bag. But I...

    Antelope Euro Mount Stinks

    Thanks all for the help. I have done my own Euros in the past, but never with an antelope. I had heard there was tissue up in the sheath that needed to be removed so I thought I would let someone who knew what they were doing take care of it for me. I'll try to get it cleaned out with some soap...

    Antelope Euro Mount Stinks

    Hey everyone, I shot an antelope last year and took it to a guy to do a euro mount on it. He took the horns off and cleaned them out then glued them back on. When I got it back the mount smelt fine, but after a bit I noticed a definite smell of death on it. I pulled the horns off and sure enough...

    Anadarko Land Access

    Just thought I would update you all on what I found out. I called Anadarko who sold to Occidental, Occidental sold to Orion Mines, Orion Mines has a subsidiary called Sweetwater Royalties. The President and CEO of Sweetwater Royalties, John DeCooman, called me after I had left a message wit...

    Anadarko Land Access

    Thanks all, I spent most of the day calling around and talking to different people. I couldn't figure out if the Occidental sell to Orion has closed yet or if it is still processing. OnX still says Anadarko, which made me wonder if maybe there was some property that they still had that hadn't...

    Anadarko Land Access

    Hi guys, I have been scouring the internet and having trouble finding a solid answer. I have heard that in the past Anadarko allowed public access for hunting on their property. I know ownership of Anadarko has changed. Does anybody know if it is still ok to be on Anadarko land? I have reached...
