    STO GameStop Taxidermy

    My fifteen year old son Bryce has not only notched 20 big game kills already, he is now a young entrepreneur. STO evolved to cure the Covid lockdown boredom when we shot family outdoor themed videos for his new Sportsmens Tradition Outdoors YouTube channel. Then he designed a logo, sold hats, and started to build his website, Facebook, and Instagram pages. STO GameStop was the next step in his vision and he currently does timely and fair prices Euromounts while offering several options. A few you can view below. He wants to evolve into Taxidermy and Processing, as well as becoming a guide. As of now he is getting stuff out in one week but I have not opened the floodgates yet. If you are in need of getting a euro mount completed, give us a shout.

  3. I went on a Javelina hunt last year with some friends (I did not have a tag, just along for the ride), and it was an absolute HOOT! I'm coming from out of state and will likely not have any time to scout the unit I get drawn for. This is a bit premature, as the draw has not yet taken place, but I'm putting in for units, 20C, 22, 23, 36A, 36B. I'd appreciate any information on good access points, general hunt areas (you can PM me) if you are familiar with any of these units. Also, if you would recommend one of these units over the others. I have a basic understanding of finding sign and how to glass for these little guys. Just looking for a good starting point.
  4. Hey. My dad and I are from southern Utah down for our first javelina hunt. We are located near lake montazuma and bull pen campgrounds. Haven't seen anything yet. Any help would be appreciated Thanks in advance

    HAM Hunting

    Those that hunt with a handgun, what ammo do you use? I will be using a 357 Revolver with a 6 in barrel this upcoming season and was looking for recommendations on which grain size to use. Also, any belt/pack holster recommendations would be greatly appreciated.

    In this video Kevin shows his way of cooking Javelina and other less desirable cuts of meat. Take a look. Do you use this method of cooking? -----> https://youtu.be/8tKj-p6rWPw <-----

    My first Javelina!!!

    This is my first Javelina and this was perhaps one of the most fun/rewarding hunts of my life! I walked all over the unit to find this pig and her heard and it was completely worth it! Calling them gets weird when they are all around you but with patience the perfect shot will present itself! Anyway enjoy the pics!

  12. Finished up this custom wall pedestal mount. This javelina had some unique features to its teeth and jaw. The client wanted the teeth of the mount to match the cleaned skull rather than have a generic jawset installed. So we molded the teeth and entire inner mouth from her javelina and created a custom jawset for her mount. Here is a link to some of the work in progress pictures, if anyone is curious as to how we did this...... https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.793214660726458.1073741846.6761785757634001&type=3

    It is with a heavy heart that a dear friend of mine lost her husband to cancer several months back. Many of you have purchased several of the items I am selling for her which has been very difficult for her as you can imagine.

    favorite time of year

    my favorite time of year com in up,just got cc hit for myself and son!!!
  21. I went to my favorite fishing hub today, Liar's Korner, and I was viewing some of the photos on the wall while waiting for my pops to finish purchasing his stuff. While looking at the pics, this one caught my eye, never saw something like this before, wondering if anyone knows who's picture this is? I just had to share with y'all. Looks like the Javelina is bout to become dinner
  22. sorry if this is in the wrong place but.... My son went down to the El Tule Ranch with Ernesto and Francisco Denogean of Trophy of Sonora and he glassed up this special javelina. He took the photo through his Leupold spotter with a digital camera. hope you enjoy!!! 2nd photo :the only thing that isn't white on his body is his butt, for what??? I think you can make pretty good guess. just for comparison, on the 3rd photo you can see a normal javelina to the left of the date stamp. you could see the whitey from 800 yards away with just your bare eye. probably one of the coolest things he has seen

    1st ever archery success!

    I went down to Mexico with my friend Mike to help another guy (Bill) hunt coues and to pick up Mikes deer cape and antlers from his Jan 1st hunt. I took my bow with me hoping Id get a chance to hunt javelina. Sunday night Bill went to another ranch to hunt for a few days, so on Monday, Mike, one of the ranch cowboys (Guiermo) and I went out to glass for javelina. We spotted a herd on a distant hillside. After closing the ½ mile gap, I stalked up to one at 20 yds. It started to run, but I woofed and it stopped for the shot. It ran 20 yds and expired. She was a 41 lb sow....my first archery kill! We spent more time glassing, saw lots of coues and one day saw 3 herds of javelina from one spot. One herd was seen running out of a cave! Then I glassed up a guy in camo carrying a backpack and water jugs going up and over a mountain. I don't think he was training for the Olympics. Here's some other interesting things we saw. We found this pile of rocks, Mike thinks it's a burial mound. We also saw this cool saguaro cactus. My last sunset until I return to hunt coues this fall.

    The Challenges Of Hunting!

    This story starts way back in Dec. 2013. Opening day of the Dec. archery season I find myself down south in search of a good Mulie. I covered several miles with sightings of Javelina and does. There was hunters at every turn, Challenge#1 I couldn't get away from them. Day two I decided to go farther south to an area I had never been. This day starts with Challenge #2. finding my way around private property to the spot I wanted to glass from. I get back in the truck just after daybreak and start getting further in to get around the fences, I find a road that goes into the canyon. 5 minutes into the glassing session I spot a small forky with several does working the ridge in the back of the canyon. As I watch the deer plotting my move, I hear a cough over my left shoulder. I swing the binos around to see the culprit, I cover the top of the ridge I am overcome with a severe case of dropjaw. After pulling all of the Cholla Cactus out of my chin and tongue, re-adjust my eyes I take a second look. This guy is the biggest Mulie I have ever spotted. I spent the rest of the Dec and Jan. hunts chasing this guy. Every free moment I had I chased or searched for this guy. Every day in the field I ran into Javelina, Challenge #3 being knee deep in them and not having a tag for that unit. Two of my hunting buddies, Bradley Bishop, and Carlos Flores went out to help in the quest. They both had pig tags for the unit and both times we couldn't find the "Big Wide Boy" or any pigs. Prior and after their days afield I found four separate herds. I was able to get two shots at the buck and I can only say "fever" got to me. Fast forward to the 2014 HAM hunt and opening day: I am at the office getting my work orders and equipment for the day. I would not be able to hunt until the following Wed. and Thurs., my days off. Every day I spent working all the while thinking of where I was going to hunt the stinky salt-n-pepper grunters. Late Monday afternoon I received a text that Tuesday we would not be working. After getting home I hurriedly gathered and re-checked my gear for the hunt . Daybreak Tuesday I was walking to my first glassing spot. I covered several miles of hills and ridges without seeing hide nor hair of my target. I spent all morning in an area that I killed my biggest pig at 53 pounds dressed. During the long walk back to the truck I was searching my memory banks for a new spot to hit before dark, while wondering what happened to the large herd that was there. Challenge#4 finding them in the unit you have the tag for. I traveled to the other side of the mountain range and was looking for the right spot when my gut said turn here! I drove in and found a good looking area. I climbed the hill and sat down and started glassing the hills and washes. After a very frustrating three hours I decided to go back a ways and check out a small water hole I saw on the way in. I found several sets of tracks and decided to sit it until dark. I picked a spot that gave good coverage of the whole water hole. I ranged several spots and waited. It didn't take long until they came in to my left, two pigs. Because I am left handed I had to spin to get a proper aim on the big one. I waited until he turned broadside and I pulled the trigger of my 9mm, I fired a second round as his departed. I checked his route for over 50 yards without any trace of blood. "How in the heck could I have missed him at only 35 yards." The entire ride home was spent kicking my self and going over the events of my epic failure to fill my tag less than an hour earlier. All night I went over the events and decided I would return and check the area again just in case I missed something, it was right at dark. After looking the area over again I was convinced I did in fact miss him. I climbed the ridge they came down the night before, stopping and glassing as I went. I made it to a point in the ridge where I could glass most of the canyon. As I stood there glassing I herd "Woof," Holy sh!% they're close! I would have thought they would have been farther away than that. After glassing the next point on the ridge I spotted one pig feeding to the right. i readied the Brute and started moving to the right to intercept him. As I fought the Cat Claw and rocks I spotted several more pigs, the whole herd was there. I was 80 yards and they made a right turn and started moving to my left and in the thicker Cat Claw where I had no shot. I knew my only shot was at close range and I put my bow down and pulled my 9 out hoping to redeem the night before. As I raised up to aim I adjusted my grip and my wedding ring tapped the grip, they were off like grease lightning. I "woofed" at them with no response so I stood there with a "what the fu@% now," look on my face. Challenge #5 noise control. I was plotting how I was going to re-engage them when I noticed there was two other pigs working a Prickly Pear to my right where I originally spotted them. I holstered my 9 and picked up my bow, as I did this the larger pig walked off and I was left with a medium pig. I ranged him at 50 yards. I raised up, pulled back, settled the third pin and unleashed the arrow of death, SWHACK! He ran 50 yards and began to tumble. Pig down, tag filled, now I can get to the "Honny do" list I had been neglecting since May 2013. The final and hardest one to control Challenge#6 getting the list done in the two to three months you aren't scouting, setting cameras, helping friends and hunting. I love my wife and I don't thank her enough for giving my the leeway to do my most passionate activity, "as long as there is the money for it" lol
