    That was a great story on so many levels. This is just one of many things I have seen you do over the years like this. They just don't make many folks like you. Thanks for sharing. I am sure that family will never forget what you did for them.

    I would hope that given the opportunity, most of us would have done the same thing. Good job.

    I have had more than a few terminally ill people take fishing charters with me over the decades. Some of them even children. When you can help to put a smile no their faces, it really feels nice.

    One quetion, what is the Stop Rot/DP method? I have used Stop Rot and I know how DP mounts are done, but I've never heard of a method with both.

    You're a good soul, Michael. I've heard you and a couple other people mention your DP and Stop Rot method. Do you just spray a raw hide with stop rot and after awhile rub DP in it, or is there more to it?
     
  16. That is awesome, I read a lot of your post, but don't post often comment. Your are truly an inspiration to so many, not just in the taxidermy trade but how you conduct your self as a human being. Great job and I look forward to learning more from you in the future

    Michael is not available right now to answer your question, so I will. He can correct me later if he needs to, but I have seen him do it and yes, he sprays it down real good and then rubs the dp into it and mounts it. I feel this way about it; the capes he did that on are very thin skinned Texas capes. I'm not sure if a heavy thick skinned cape would work as well, but I can't say for sure. But on the thin capes it seems to work just fine. At least thats my take on it.

    Thanks. I don't plan on using DP since I'm not in that big of a hurry, but I wanted to know in case I ever get in a situation where I have to do something like that. I asked more out of curiosity. As far as thick versus thin skinned deer, our seasons start in July so they can be pretty thin here.
