For those searching for specimens for your collections, don't rule out thrift shops and yard sales. Do a fast drive by and see if there is anything of interest. Poke your nose into second hand stores, especially ones run by guys that do estate cleanouts. Do a Google search in your area and look for junk removal, home cleanouts, etc. Call these people and leave your name and phone number. Tell them what you are interested in. A lot of these guys sell the stuff they come up with as salvage in small shops of their own. Wandered into one today and just mentioned that I was always looking for old skulls, hunting trophies, animal hides, claws and the like. Guy says he has something he doesn't know what to do with and maybe I would be interested. Drags this out of the back room. Needless to say it came home with me. Very unexpected but a welcome surprise.
