Some of us were blessed to have known Terry Davis both personally and professionally for many years, while some of us only knew him for a matter of weeks.  In May of 2008 he lost his battle with cancer.  There are no words to adequately express the grief many of us felt for Terry & his family.  For many months we read his Cancer Blogs.  Through the good times and bad, Terry tried to smile and tried to help.  He gave his life, his family, and this industry that he loved so much, everything he could, until he could give no more.

I hope that in some small way, by putting the tutorials that Terry had on his website, here on Taxidermy.net, he will continue to teach, inspire, and watch over all of us.  His beloved wife, Maggie, has given her blessing to this project.

I havent changed a word of the tutorials.  The methods described within are entirely Terrys.  I made the pictures taxi.net friendly, but other than that, this is the exact tutorial Terry had on his website.  ;)

Enjoy, and God bless.  L




Making a habitat rock
1) Basic materials needed -2 x 2 - animal - chicken wire

2) Cut 2 x 2's into random lengths and screw to base - it doesn't matter if they stand up straight or not - you are looking for randomness

3) Chicken wire

4) Another look

5) Stretch over pegs and staple

6) here's another look

7) Up close

8) Pull around and staple on bottom

9) Jive burlap available at the taxidermy section in wal-mart - staple to pegs and pull under and staple there two

10) Plater paris - mix up very soupy - slightly thicker than oj

11) Paint on with throwaway brush - this will stiffen the burlap

12) If you miss a spot go back and hit it again

13) Pick your colors

14) apply paint

15) keep adding colors

16) ......and some more

17) pick your color of fleck-stone (available over the internet)

We know the photobucket pictures are down.  I've done what I can to fix it.  I am at a loss for anything else I can do.  Ken Edwards & Patrick J are working on it and I am very grateful to them.  I am hopeful that Terry can continue to teach future generations of taxidermists for many years to come.

Thank you for your patience.
