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.

It's the "Home of the Award Winning Jerky." And such an honor to have your kill dangling from the annual Buck Pole for all to admire...
