    Anyone know who makes this? Or do you think the guy built it himself?

    I have never seen it in any catalogs. It looks custom made to me.

    Any of the panel makers could make that for you....try Peedee deer ???? (right name) Also Wildlife Panel in NY 1-315-589-5148 Mike Gelina. Over the years he has made me panels from line drawings I sent him. He's a good one for sure. JL

    We used 2 craft panels from Hobby Lobby and a 2x4 that we put on the belt sander and gave a little curve. Stained and sealed.

  11. Brooke that looks awesome. Did you purchase the Bark Edge round from Hobby Lobby? If so, that is ours that we supply into Hobby Lobby.

    Yes I did! I never even noticed it was y'alls. Thank you for the compliment. The base turned out well and allows the Turkey to be hung on the wall out of reach of kids and dogs.

    This customer is a Louisiana State Trooper. I texted him that his mount was ready and as always I reminded him of my pickup deadline. (1 week). He texted back and asked if I could hold on to it, he'd pay the penalty, because he had gotten sent to Baton Rouge to help with the "protesters". I told him I'd keep it, no charge and for him to grow eyes in the back of his head.
