Reid spends some time with Michael Pepi of Jonas Brothers Taxidermy in New York. With more than a century's worth of experience, Jonas Brothers has been the taxidermist of choice for such noted hunters as Ernest Hemingway. Since the early 1980's the company has been owned by the Pepi family, and Michael carries on the tradition. He is an avid waterfowler and upland hunter, as well as a dog handler and guide. Reid and Michael discuss birds, dogs, and how to care for game you hope to have mounted.
