A kinder, gentler taxidermy
The New York Times
If you visit Alison Raleigh at home, in Hoboken, New Jersey, one of the first things you're likely to notice is all the taxidermy: There's a deer head in the bathroom, a stuffed pheasant and crow on the mantel, a ram's head in the study. She bought a lot of it on eBay. But some of it she made herself. There are those who may say that do-it-yourself taxidermy is taking D.I.Y. just a little too far.

Over the years he has received many awards for his work. However, getting started wasn't so easy.

Deer hunting tips: Open up the lockdown
Field & Stream
Lockdown is a catchy word, but it doesn't accurately describe that stretch of peak breeding season when mature bucks seem to vanish. Bucks aren't imprisoned with their does during this seven- to 10-day phase. Their locations and movement patterns just change dramatically from those of the pre-rut.
