Field Trips

Tim set up a fascinating field trip for the kids this month. We went out to Foothills Taxidermy and learned all about the process of hunting an animal, to having it mounted on your wall. Who knew that it takes almost a year and a half from start to finish! The kids had some super good questions, which means they must have been as interested as I was.

 The taxidermist gave us some owl eyeballs as a souvenir. Pretty awesome.

 The following weekend Tim got to see the real deal. The night before he went, I was seriously worried. I didn't like thinking about him in the dark, cold snow, with a gun and bears possibly sneaking up on him... but he had a good experience and they ended up shooting 3 white tails.

 Yes, that is Timmy's hand!
