But the story about drews father...

My buddy had killed a few deer that were at the taxidermist, one that year and a buck from the year before. Well, money was tight and his father wanted his sons bucks saved before his massive boy that dwarfed the others. Well that was a good 12 years ago. For 12 years, those set of horns set in a shed in the back. Drews father passed away this past summer from cancer. We couldn't think of a better way to honor him than mount his prized set of horns. We finally got our hands on a huge bodied deers cape that would fit this set of horns. Ole' Maloney worked his magic and brought an old busted up set of huge antlers back to life.

It's like Tony said, It don't get no better than two buddies, two huge deer, same deer trail. Memories of a lifetime.

Fredbear, mounting the fathers deer is a fitting tribute to a hunter no longer with us. When someone has passed on, and all we have is memories, looking at a mounted deer (big or small) doesn't matter to me, but just reminds me to reflect for a minute or two on the person who killed it and how good of times we had that day or that person had that day.

I hear ya firehog. That sums it up just right. His dad would be so proud that these two are on the wall. He's no longer physically with us but we definitely have something to remember him by. He never let you know it, but he loved this set of horns. I just thank God that we have taxidermist that can preserve animals like this for a lifetime for memories to carry on.
