    I have been on and off the phone with a friend this morning that has gotten involved with the United States Marine Corps. Wounded Warriors. He called and asked if i could help put a Donated mount program together for the Wounder Warriors..Of coarse i said "Tell me what to do"...Here's what we have going on..A Wounded Warrior Special hunt will be taking place in Beaufort, S. Carolina Nov. 7-8..These are all Soldiers that were wounder in Iraq, and have just been released from the hospital, and are missing limbs, sad to say..All the Soldiers are from the Paris Island Base in S. Carolina...There are 33 Soldiers taking part in this hunt..What we are looking for is 33 Taxidermists from around the country to mount their deer for them.. We have been in contact with McKenzie, and they are donating supplies for 20 of these mounts..We are in contact with other suppliers as i type this for the rest...Also i will be getting in touch with some of our Tanneries to see if we can get tanning donated also..If some of you guys on here with tanneries would be interested, please contact me...All supplies and capes will be shipped to your shop..I will have a list of the Soldiers and their home towns from the Marine Corps. in the morning so maybe we can get some of you guys and gals in their general vicinity to avoid shipping...The Taxidermists that do donate their time to one of these Soldiers, will get a certificate for their shop from the Wounded Warriors with the Soldiers name on it..This is going to take a crap load of work for us to get everything organized and ordered per cape, but i feel it is a good cause, and am proud to help...If you would like to volunteer, please either post here, pm me, or call me...Shop # is 815-728-7097 or cell# is 815-378-8170...I cant always get to the phone in time, so please leave a message so i can get back to you...Thank you so much for reading this..Scott Olson..Lakeland Taxidermy..I know some of this is kind of vague right now, but were just starting to get this thing rolling..As soon as i get new information, i will post it here..Thanks again..

    I am nowhere near ready to participate in such an event right now (I haven't even made my first mount yet) but I think this is really cool, and if there is a way anyone else can help (by donating money or supplies, or whatever else) please let us know, and keep everyone posted.

    Very cool.
