I have to apologize for not writing for so long. Here it is midsummer already. The fishing seasons are in now and we’ve been busy taking in trophies from around Michigan. I actually took a trophy of my own this summer, a beautiful gold fish from the Grand River. As much as this fish means to me, I have to admit that I have taken five others that are still waiting to be mounted. I think being a taxidermist is a lot like a plumber or electrician, their plumbing and wiring is the last to be done. I have nine deer of my own to be mounted yet………… and so it goes.
Bobby Hamilton has been practicing taxidermy art since graduating from Story's Taxidermy School in Iowa in 1992. Recently he has begun competing at the state show in Grand Rapids, MI with great success!
