Edible taxidermy: It's a good thing
The Daily Beast
In London's hip East End, a trend for DIY taxidermy is spreading — now you get to eat the animal before you stuff it.

A rare look inside the studio of 1 of the world's most famous taxidermists
Business Insider
If you've ever gone to the American Museum of Natural History in New York City, you've seen David Schwendeman's work. Where ever you see a taxidermied bird swooping or animal running, there's a good chance Schwendeman's artful hands carefully crafted that creature in lifelike, frozen animation. Schwendeman was the last full-time taxidermist employed at the museum, a position he held until 1986, when he retired to his hometown studio, in Milltown, New Jersey. Schwendeman passed away in 2012 at the age of 87.

Outdoor Life
Without question, most diehard deer hunters get fired up for the much-anticipated rut. But this brief period can be chaotic, somewhat unpredictable and often difficult to hunt due to intense outside hunting pressure and other uncontrollable factors. This is exactly why you need to take advantage of the early season and exploit a mature buck’s routine long before things start to unravel and shake loose.
