History

The kangaroos were shot by Noel Gundry of Miles Queensland, tanned by Coogans of Toowoomba and stitched together by Bud Ford, the owner, in the 1960s. It is not now used. Bud Ford recalled that Noel Gundry, who shot the kangaroos, was a very good shot, 'definitely a head shot man'. The skins were chrome tanned, a new method in the sixties and, according to Bud, not as successful as tan bark.
