6th annual Carnivorous Nights Taxidermy Contest

...was a success!

I was hesitant to submit the coyote I made this summer because she's such a traditional mount (this contest mostly embraces the kooky, kitschy and rogue), but it seemed like people loved her. We came back with a trophy! "Best Buddy" category - whatever that means! :)

Note the amazing Tae Kwon Doe trophy... 
and my very own Bow Hunter Ann, complete with treestand!

Saw her in Time Out New York, and found some really sweet comments...

Good days media:

The overall winner of the competition was Mike Zohn of the tv show Oddities for his beer-dispensing (pissing) coyote keg. The cooler that it's mounted on actually works. Now why didn't I think of that!

Make sure to come out to next year's competition at the Bell House in Gowanus, Brooklyn!
