This week's feature story profiles Mitchell, Illinois resident Rick Nadeau
and his fascination with taxidermy. But not just any stuffing and mounting. Nadeau's taxidermy trade is in squirrels. Squirrels playing cards
. Squirrels holding guns
. That sort of thing.
Below is a sampling of Rick's work and photos of the man himself, by Jennifer Silverberg
Take a gander at the pics and then squirrel away a few minutes to read staff writer Aimee Levitt's story
on Nadeau and his "little buddies." You won't want to miss it.
