At the request of the Site owner I was asled to take photos of the mounts we have in our store. While you see these on the TV and at the Zoo most hunters don't get a chance to see them Up Close. Even though they are Mounts it is surprising how intimidating these are. I figure they should go here under hunting vice Nature Photography as they were (hunted of course).

If your ever in the Orlando FL Area stop in at Shoot Straight in Apopka and have a look... hell while your there releave some stress and put some rounds down range or buy a firearm. :lol:

Enjoy!

Must be some store!

I plan on taking my boys up to the new Cabela's near Reading, PA this summer. ( about an hour and a half away) They have supposedly thousands of museam quality mounts. They say they are going to become the single, largest toursit attraction in PA.

Interesting thing about lighting....in the first photo (on my machine, at least,) the lighting is such that it produces a glare on the sign the bear is holding, making it appear that the wording is "SHOUT STRAIGHT." Good advice????

Now I have a reason to actually come to Florida. It might be worth a trip just to see this shop.

Actually, the wife has been nagging me to go to Florida, I just never cared for it.

Actually, Schmit doesn't work with the monkey. I heard that Schmit replaced the monkey. It seems the monkey wanted higher pay and more befefits so he quit and they hired Schmit instead... :twisted:

Monkey talk

If it was a retailed monkey, it may have been a Schmit.

If it was a detailed monkey, it was a baboon.

:roll:

Schmit,

Nice store.... I'd love to stop by. My shop has two boring deer mounts.
These were given to me by customers. I was always too cheap to bring things to a Taxidermist.... But never too tired to pack the meat back:)
Thanks for the pictures

Gerry
