Montana taxidermy competition displays mounts from leopards to fish
KTVQ-TV
A taxidermy competition was held in Bozeman recently, and deer and elk weren't the only creatures on display. Libby resident Daniel May is taking home a blue ribbon for his leopard. "Once the skins come in, you know, dry, salted, it doesn't look like it could ever turn into something like this," he said of his work. A lot goes into creating a life-like animal mount, even in the painting, he said.

Taxidermy laid bare
Borneo Post
These are just one of the many displays of animal taxidermy in our renowned Sarawak Museum. Their skins and skulls have been well-preserved and shaped into what they originally looked like — preserved for generations. Not many visitors to any museum understood the complexity in the behind-the-scenes process that created life-like samples of animal species, some of which are still in existence while others long extinct.

Tips for keeping your legs healthy during long bird hunts
Grand View Outdoors
Scott Linden a contributor for Grand View Outdoors, writes: "'Walk This Way' is more than an iconic rock tune (the original version by Aerosmith). Ambulating with some care husbands your precious energy and may save a trip to the emergency room. Where I hunt in the darkest spot in the lower 48, I am the farthest anyone can get from a hospital in the contiguous U.S. That's a good enough reason to think before I step."

Hart Mountain bighorn sheep dazzle viewer, but is it Oregon's best wildlife spectacle
The Oregonian
Terry Richard writes for the Oregonian: "When you see 133 wild bighorn sheep gathered together in one herd, it's a pretty moving moment. I say 'wild' because the herd of sheep I saw was not the human-habituated sheep you encounter in some of the Rocky Mountain national parks. They were atop Hart Mountain in southeast Oregon."
