Grandma Chubby's Stuff

I hope you enjoy my postings. My husband and I are serving a mission in Romania and have had some wonderful adventures. Each of us have experiences in our life that make us different from that time forth. These experiences have done that for us.

Bringin' Home the meat!

Well, yes, John did make up for five years of NO Hunting! Besides getting his elk this past fall, he got a buffalo in January and couldn't resist stuffing the head. We recently got the big guy back and John was happy to tell us that this scruffy looking animal was the leader of the pack. He had been in many fights in order to dominate his herd and thus his horns were chipped and scarred and the hair around his face was not the pretty look of a proud, young bull. John loved getting a fighter! By the way, this bull and several others were marked to taken this year because of their age and the plan that had been put in place for herd management. If John hadn't gotten him someone else would eventually have done so. That made it easier for him to shoot such a majestic animal!
It was a monster but boy did it give us a ton of meat! We ended up having to buy another freezer. However, our kids now think our garage is the local FREE butcher shop and they don't hesitate to drop by to fill their shopping carts!
Now, what to do with that monster head! We ended up putting it in our cabin in Fairview, Utah. It was too big for any wall but one bedroom. He's quite a site to be laying in bed and looking up at!
It took our son, Brandon, and John a good hour to struggle it up the wall but they finally made it and now anyone who walks in that room in the dark better beware! Mostly because it might scare the pants off you if you don't know its there! :)

If it wasn't you telling the story it would be hard to leave that head is real. The nose alone looks as big as a persons head.
