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

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..

this Pintail drake was done for a client 36 years ago, and was recently brought in to be cleaned.. Kind of a rookie mount, but they stand the test of time - i take great measures to make them as bug proof /bombproof as possible..

a feshly mounted Woodcock...( oh--boy) Many dermists consider this bird to be among the hardest to mount, as their skin in spots is thin enough to see your finger print clearly through...(electrodes/pins are holding everything in place while it dries...then they get put onto the "habitats"..
