Stitching it all together: From taxidermy to sculpture
Daily Herald Media
The pen-raised bird, which died of unknown causes, and Rhymer's manipulation of it as he transformed into a piece of taxidermy, were the center of attention of a handful of people. He was creating the bird mount as part of a weeklong artist residency at the Woodson Art Museum as part of its Birds in Art exhibition. Rhymer, 51, from Point of Rocks, Md., was a taxidermist and model-maker at the Smithsonian's National Museum of National History for 25 years until he retired in 2010. He was following in the footsteps of his grandfather and father in working at the museum, and he's a second-generation taxidermist, having learned the craft from his father as a kid.

My first deer: An unforgettable experience
By John McAdams
Just after first light that morning, my father tapped me on the knee and slowly motioned to our left. I looked and saw two shapes carefully moving through the mist. Looking through the scope on my rifle, I could see that the shapes were two young bucks about 50 yards away, walking warily toward the feeder in front of us, and my pulse quickened. "They’re bucks," I whispered to my father. "Pick one and go ahead and shoot him," my father responded.

Bighorn ram numbers a mystery
The Bismarck Tribune
Most everyone who hunts in North Dakota, whether they actually hunt deer or not, knows the opening day for deer gun season is Nov. 8. And unless you were one of the four hunters who have a North Dakota bighorn sheep license for this fall, or if you are a friend or family member of one of those hunters, you probably didn't know for sure that the state's bighorn sheep gun season opens Nov. 1.

Turning the world of taxidermy upside down
Warrington Guardian
Turning the world of taxidermy inside out is contemporary artist Polly Morgan. The East Londoner's work will be on display at Warrington Museum for visitors but the original take on stuffed animals has already caused quite a stir. She said: "I'm crazy about animals and never use anything that's been killed for me. I wanted animals that looked dead not for macabre or morbid reasons but because I found animals that were made to look alive were not as convincing."

Renowned alumnus continues family taxidermy tradition
The Daily Targum
With three generations of taxidermists, the Schwendemans have established a name for themselves — a reason for Hollywood to turn to Schwendeman for expert advice on critters and crawlers. By definition, taxidermy is the craft in which the skin of a dead animal is removed, treated and repositioned over an artificial body to create an illusion of life. But Schwendeman wants to emphasize that his craft combines the visual aestheticism of art and the deductive knowledge of science.

Crappie can be a fall sport, too, for Kentucky fishermen
The Courier-Journal
Jackie Vancleave and Tim Blackley know that many dedicated springtime crappie fishermen trade their fishing gear for hunting tools in October and November. They don't begrudge the time spent hunting, but they suggest that fishing rods still can be put to good use as the leaves change colors and the weather turns chilly.
