very cool Ron.

I'm a wildlife biologist and can really appreciate your work.

blue - you're right, great educational purposes, not only for identification but also a respect and admiration for the animal.

if you're ever up in Humboldt County, go to the wildlife department at HSU and look around for a while.

All these things must be learned through hands on study of skinned reference.

I took a class once in my misspent youth from a prof. that had received his masters in fine arts from one of the major Calif universities. It was the only one that had a dissecting anatomy class, (same one premeds took) as a required course.

Sorta thinned out the herd.

Amazing work there.

Cool work, Ron. Once again, we led similar paths bitd. I learned as a teen through Northwest(ern) Taxidermy School. Couldn't wait as a kid to get shipments of glass eyes, woodwool and tanning chemicals. It was a great experience. My favorites were coyote hides, coots, rabbits, a cub bear. Never attempted a fish. Also mounted a couple of hawks and a Great Horned Owl picked up down by Cradlebaugh Bridge. It was only a few years back a couple of jays got into the garage and picked the owl apart. Which I had up on the shelf for 35 years - talk about dusty! Otherwise I'd post a pic of it. Miss jepedos in CC. Too bad we didn't hook up - climbing and taxi together as teens would've been fun!

My landlord was a hunter. He has about 10 animals mounted. Sitting in his house sometimes weirds me out. I don't fully understand hunting. At least not for things you don't eat.

Like Crimpie though, I think your work has a beauty to it.


A friend of mine carves wood birds. They are sort of simple carvings, yet he has a knack for capturing their beauty. You also have a knack for capturing these animals beauty. I imagine it was a fairly rigorous learning process.

More birds please and thanks for posting this. It is interesting.

Brings whole new meaning to that one phrase "take this job and stuff it.."

Good work, takes guts to do that, or rather remove guts to do that

You have probably already answered this question...

If so, I missed it...

But what are the things sticking out of the animals that look like straws???...

They are electrodes Locker, for when Ron is ready to take over the world. He is actually an evil genius and he plans to bring all of his creations back to life where they will devour their owners.

So far he has animals in all the democrats houses.


sorry ron, for exposing your plan..

How much of what was originally in the bear, is still in the bear???...






EDITED:

That has got to be one hell of a LOT of work...

That is one big bear.

I walked into a black bear walking home one night. Pitch black, no flash light and the bear was crossing the road I was walking down. Neither of us saw the other until I walked right into him. He was waste high.

that is a lot bigger bear..
