Well,, as far as "favorite taxidermy,, ill say birds,, but as far as fav mammalian ,, id say felines , as their facial features are interesting..

And Ys Jim,, the acupuncture helps keep the focus- of the SKIN!;-) Those are "euro pins" - lil sharp tiny pins used to hold the skin into place while drying.

every now and then you get a speciman that defys ALL forms and shape.. This DOE gemsbok is just that. The form required 100% re-sizing and shaping as they dont make many DOE gemsbok forms (NONE actually).

The skin is used for sizing, then about four pounds of clay work to re-organize the shape and facial features.

Not to mention those DAMM stripping screws- CHEAP basitds that cant even go into wood without stripping.!!!!!!!!!!!

Im tellin ya,, i could use a COGNAC about now lol!

next comes the Impala, with veins in the face bulging out-- those African Antelopes have VERY short and thin hair..


Tanks Michelle! Woodsy seems a favorite..




Then,, it went ontop the Gemsbok in a "Double Pedastal style mount- all detachable from the base and each other via male/ female square stock steel..

So I'm curious about the mount. Did he request that stacked type layout, or did you suggest it, or where did the idea come from. Wouldn't be my personal choice, but I guess it also depends on the trophy room where it will live.

You do good work Ron...even if I don't like to see animals killed for sport or stuffing...for food and full use of their parts in a respectful manner I condone

I just hate to see magnificent specimens killed for some person's wall as for your client being all smiles...isn't he in one of those movies where they hunt the humans for sport?

ElCap,, yes he requested the "double pedastal" style mount-- just an artsy presentation- a bit more than just "on the wall" if you will..


And Mt Lion,, not ONE bit of those animals went wasted. The hunter gets a meal or two off each one he gets, and local tribes get the rest. A very typical arrangement among outfitters and locals. A win win for all concerned. And also brings in $$$$ to their economy as many locals work for the outfitters. Its a main stay in Africa for quite sometime, and these large ranches also are responsible for the recovery of many specimens, fyi..Poachers usually dont get away with poaching on outfitters grounds. Also a plus for Africa..


and he hunted them with a LONG BOW. if you had the slightest clue of how hard that is in AFRICA,, you may go,, wow,, impressive! In the bush in Africa, everything either a)- sticks you, or b)- bites you..
