This is just an idea I have been doing taxidermy for about 8 years now partime. I have started mounting euros on peices of drift wood. YOu get a flattish peice of wood most the time I try to get one with a small ridge in the middle that way I can mount more than one on it some shading to the left and some shading to the right. Most of my customers like this better than the plaque type.

vandykes is a cabalas company but cab sells just a couple genaric displays for the do-it-yourselfer. vandykes is a professional taxidermist company owned by cabelas. the ones cabales sells are in the vandykes catalogs too. i get 90% of my supplies from them.

I never said i didnt like cabelas i just didnt think they had as good of a selection as van *****. Cabelas is pretty good on some things, I just didnt like the selection they had. Thats all, the reason i like van ***** is that they have alot more to choose from.

ya i just ment that you said you didnt like cabalas selection and two or three said try cabalas after the fact,lol. they hadnt read the posts i guess,lmao. vandykes is a bit cheaper on supplies than mckenzie on forms ect... so i get most from them. but mckenzies catalog is about 2" thick compared to vandykes 3/4".

I get 95% of my supplies from McKenzie. Nothing against Van ***** at all. McKenzie is 35 miles from my house. so I save big time on picking up bulk orders than having them shipped to me. I worked a deal out with the sales manager from Van ***** and purchased a tumbler and corn cob grit for free shipping.
:wink:
