Taxidermied Deer Don't Drink Wine

And that makes me angry...


The sad thing was, the deer won the bar fight.

This is the current feature called "What People Drink" in the latest issue of Mutineer Magazine, a very interesting outlet for the true cutting edge of drinking culture. The editor, Alan Kropf was a fellow judge at the Lake County People's Choice wine awards, and one afternoon he pulled me aside for an interview and a photo shoot.

Here's a PDF of the spread. Go out and buy this month's issue if you can and check it out. It's a very interesting read.

I'm having flashbacks of that famous "When Animals Attack" deer scene when it attacks the hunter... :)

This is really cool and fun. Awesome photo and great representation - you look like a character from Quentin Tarantino.

Thanks for posting this. Nov/Dec is a great issue and your "What People Drink" interview was one of the best thus far. Mutineer's knack for photography makes the magazine that much more fun to read.
