More Desert Sheep

Here are some more sheep we did this year for some lucky hunters.  The wall pedestal ram is Dave Martin's 182+ ram from unit 22 and the wide horned shoulder mount is Dennis Loescher's 180+ ram from 24B.  The laying ram with his head to the left is Carl L.'s giant 185 24B ram.  Good luck to this years hunters, only a little over a week away!

Here are some photos of a few sheep we recently finished.  We complete all desert sheep mounts in time for the ADBSS sheep hunter and ram recognition banquet held each fall for those hunters who wish to attend and display their sheep.

Huge Desert Nelsoni Sheep

Here are a couple of photos of Claude Warren's big ram from last fall.  Claude was lucky enough to be the winner of the super raffle sheep tag which allows him to hunt most of the units along the Colorado River.  Claude hunted with Jay Scott and Darr Colburn of Colburn and Scott Outfitters
Claude's ram grosses 185 3/8 inches and nets 181 1/8, making it the top Nelsoni ever taken in Arizona if I am not mistaken.  Thanks to Claude for letting me do this awesome sheep.

Velvet and a hard horned deer

Here are some velvet bucks and a hard horned buck that I recently finished up.  The hard horned mule deer was taken in central AZ by a junior hunter from Mississippi.  It is crated and shipping out tomorrow for its new home.  He is 32" wide and grosses 185; a super buck for this area.

Here is white rhino I mounted for a client.  He went to Africa and took his dangerous seven all on the same hunt.  Mounting an animal the size of Volkswagen sure is far cry from working on our little coues deer from here.

A Couple of Pieces Finished

Here is a pedestal we did of a great coues buck taken by Waylon Pettet of Arizona Groundpounders. Waylon's buck grosses in the mid 120s.   The lion was taken by Matthew Phillips while hunting with the Arizona Groundpounder crew.

Mexico 2014

Here are some photos of our most recent annual jaunt to Sonora this year for Coues deer.  The weather was warm and the moon was big which is not a good combination for hunting deer. Our group was still able to harvest some nice bucks.  Our leases were pretty dry this year with deer numbers down quite a bit.  Even with the tough hunting conditions everyone had a great time.  We even had 12 Goulds's gobblers walk across the road in front of us one evening.  Thanks to Bob D. for the great cooking and to Pat H., Hunter H., Houston D., Rob M., Richard K., Tim R., Earl L, Bill G. and Cole G. for he good times.
