    I've had my eye on a piece of land for years & one early morning saw a 'For Sale' sign on it. I immediately called Miranda & her response was 'BUY IT!'. Well it isn't always that simple. This journey started 4 months ago and finally ended Monday. Needless to say, we ended up in a family Charlie Foxtrot.... but we stuck it out.

    Ladies and gentleman, let me show you what looks like a barren piece of land but what is soon to be home to the new 'MAD Taxidermy'. It's crazy, I always loved this land and happened to be at the right place at the right time (which come to find out was 5 minutes after the signs were placed). The offers for the land since closing are crazy And was even offered $35,000 more than we paid for it yesterday by the local physical therapist..... I'm not selling, I'm building!! I am so damn PROUD of this!!!!

    Here's the only pic that'll upload, burning off grass & brush with help of our Kubota armor LOL. The new shop will be in the front area of where the 2 story house is. The new shop is 56'x56' with a 16' x 56' overhang attached to it for trailers & habitat storage

    Congratulations Mike !

    Who says taxidermy can't be a rewarding and profitable career.

    A dream doesn't become reality through magic; it takes sweat, determination and hard work.

    If you were to burn piles of sticks, leaves or anything here you would be getting a summons over here in good old N.J. Good luck Mike on your new shop.

    Nice, the fire truck sirens would be a blowing and I would be in handcuffs LOL. The high school was not even allowed to have a bonfire for football last year. Looks like a small version of the oil wells in Iraq burning.
