Thanks peeps! I wanted him to have a kind of glaring inquisitive look,, as if to say hhmmmmm should i make you MY next meal?

They are lovely birds to work on, the feathers all serrated for silence in flight. The tiny nearly invisible lashes of plumage on the face ring--the NAs for the most fear this bird as the harbinger of death. Ive always FELT the opposite that they are the bringers of a good hunt. When ive seen them early in the am hunting, ive always done good.

Glad ya liked ol Woodsy! He was a N shore roadkill..

Ron, I guess you may have seen this on the Flames. I'm posting the whole picture, warts y todos. The Trophy Room Bar awaits your sooner-or-later patronage. It's opening maybe in another month.

Their mounts have aged well, as far as I can tell. They date back to the 40s, most of them. You've probably seen lots of these ancient ones in your life as pig o' the woods, etc.

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..
