Fake Carcasses, Giant Deer

This local meat shop and deer processing plant has some great outdoor statues and displays. The 20-foot jumping buck is bound to catch your attention as you drive past. Upon close inspection, there are also about a half dozen fake cleaned carcasses on the back billboards. These become real and a showcase for local sportsmen in the fall. There is also a cute little 3-foot pig chef near the west corner of the building.
