    A buddy posted these on another forum. The guy in the pics is Shane Smith from Alabama. Those of you that get Breakthrough will know his (awesome) work.

    Aren't those the hungry little buggers from Jurrasic Park?

    I'd love one of those Ocellated's some day.

    not sure... Emailed a buddy of mine but he hasn't responded yet. I would imagine in the couple thousand range, but that's just a guess.

    Email dave luke (lukefu@aol.com) if you're interested, he books (and goes on) a lot of these types of hunts, and is an amazing taxidermist. When he hunted with us a couple years ago, we skinned some birds when we were done. That boy has had practice 'cause he had about 3 or 4 done to every one of mine (in 15 minutes!).
