A peculiarly decorated mounted deer head hangs out of an old camper in front of Cricket’s Bait Shop. The queen deer is just one of the eccentric displays of art you will find at Cricket’s. The deer is adorned with a lady’s scarf, a blond wig, and a crown placed in between its large antlers. (Gazette photos by Elizabeth West)
