United States -(AmmoLand.com)- Outside of dealing with social and conservation issues, booking hunts and awesome poeple, SCI is known as an incredible place for taxidermy.

Some of the most detailed pieces and wildlife scenes are depicted on the SCI show floor.  One has to stop to take time to appreicate the work.

Art comes in many forms.  For some it is paint, other it is stone or bronze. and for a select few, it is wildlife.

Taxidermy

Taxidermy is very much a huge part of the hunt since the meat will one day run out and you want to be left with vivid memeories of the hunt which in many ways is a tribute to the fallen.

A few years ago I went to the SCI Convention. incredible dioramas! That was the first time in my life I could get within two feet of a lion, and other dangerous animals. Wow, unless you have seen a lion close up you have no idea how big they really are-and armed with 2 inch claws and feet that can easily cover a large dinner plate and teeth going two inches and the fighting speed of a house cat. Another real surprise was the 4,500 pound rhino-actually a very short but obviously (real stout) animal.
