The International Wildlife Museum

Recently, I have been reading the amazing hunting adventures of C. J. Mc Elroy throughout the world and read that many of his trophies were at the International Wildlife Museum . As luck would have it, I had to be in Tucson, AZ yesterday for business, which is the home of the museum. I visited and was stunned by the place. Any hunter who is interested in the game of the world must visit this place. It was truly spectacular. Check it out.

It is far better to dare mighty things, though riddled with failure, than to live in the dull grey of mediocrity.

Feelin' "Horny"?

Sounds like a good place to go when you're in a new town and lookin' for action!

It's a pretty good museum. My wife is a teacher and she takes her classes on field trips there. The story is that it all started as a place for this guy to keep his hunting trophies. Other people put theirs in and it just kept going from there. It's very interesting.

If you are out that way, drive a little further out and go to the Desert Museum too. It's kind of a cross between a zoo and a museum. The people there are a little mor 'eco-freakish' but al in all it's a nice place. Where els can you go see Javelina, Coues Deer, and Mountain Lions?

The aviary at the Sonoran Desert Museum is incredible, also. The hummingbird exhibit is world-class...
