Not only tours, but the bar frig is full of COLD beer! :p
And there are still more critters on my bucket list than I have wall space for. 😨
Bozangeles is not that distant from my latest Montana land acquisition (a bit over half a section a few miles east of Clinton--if I were more polictically motivated I might circulate a petition to have the post office renamed "Trump" but "Nimrod, MT" is physically closer and I'm cool with that). I just might have to come calling to discover if you stock any double bock bier or Scotch ale in that frig!

A another update to my Trophy Room is that I shot my Mountain Goat over 40 years ago, and back then I didn't have space for a full mount of him so even though my taxidermist wanted to do a full mount of him so bad that he offered to reduce the cost of a full mount by over 30%, I had him only do a half mount. I have regretted that decision ever since. I was also not fully satisfied with the rock that the taxidermist made for my goat to stand on, so a few weeks ago I ordered a rock and some other supplies from McKenzie Taxidermy Supply, and last week I put my goat on a new rock that I like better, even if I did put it together myself.
My goat on it's old rock... ...and on his new rock that I put together with some canned foam, fake snow and icicles...

So along with my 3 Montana Unlimited Unit Rams that makes this my favorite corner in my Trophy Room...

That would be my favorite corner even without the pool table. The new rock is definitely an improvement; icicles a nice touch!

@Kandder, Thank you for your service! I was a 5th generation Denverite and started big game hunting when I went to Colorado State in Ft Collins. I started bow hunting when I was stationed at Ft Sill, Oklahoma in 1970, and I couldn't wait to get back to Colorado. Then I got back to Colorado and moved to Montana 5 years later.

Since I grew up about 10 miles from the Coors brewery, my bar frig is mostly stocked with Coors Light, but there are a few downstream beers in it.
LOL, had to laugh at "downstream beers" because I instantly flashed upon a repeated complaint that the tribal villagers of Kafiristan presented to Peachy Carnehan and Daniel Dravot in "The Man Who Would Be King" movie (based upon the Kipling story).

Thank you for your service as well! Army has changed a little since you were in lol. I only have two more years and I'll be able to hang the hat, can't wait at this point. Was at FT. Sill for 3 years and just never got around to hunting there. Was deployed most of the time and didn't really see how awesome it is there. I have some buddies there now that do really really well. I'm at FT. Carson now so trying to make the best of my time here. All this e-scouting and scouring the internet I'm gonna give 66 a try I think. Hopefully, my son and I are lucky on our first elk hunt this year.
