Antlers, Oklahoma is known as the deer capital of the world. This year, the Deer Capital Tourism Association sought to promote economic growth in Antlers, Pushmataha county, and Oklahoma at large through a special event, but needed some specialized help to make it happen. They needed to set an 8,000 lb wooden log in place so that it could be carved by a chainsaw artist.
Mike Anglum and his crew from job 2632 in Antlers have become a staple in the community over the last two years, so they were called upon to help! While it may not have been a transmission or distribution pole, our guys knew just what to do. Kosal Phok, Richard Haigwood, Cleveland Freeman, and Edward Avila set the log in place. Then, chainsaw artist Scott Winford skillfully carved the wood into the shape of a bear. Pictured below with the finished product are Mike Anglum, Andrew Mack, Scott Winford, and Verne Jackson.
