To taxidermy, or not to taxidermy?

A gentleman offered to shoot a stag for me. 'I'll lop off its head, stuff it for you and mount it on a plaque. Won't that be nice?' He even offered to let me choose the prettiest stag to kill.

Personally, I'm not against recycling dusty old taxidermy. Scraping a still-warm stag fresh off the tarmac is another matter. Still, it's not as gruesome as these antique taxidermies I stumbled across at an auction house in Dorset.
