Thank you, I appreciate the comments. That was the first time having one of my mounts featured. Pretty cool.

You'll want to de-grease a trout skin. You can use degreaser from a supply company, or you can use some dawn/water. As for preserving the skin...a mixture of 40% denatured alcohol and 60% water works, or mix some borax and water...that works too. If you use the 60/40 you will want to rehydrate the skin in plain water for 20 to 30 minutes before mounting.

Some if not all of their signature series are conventional casts with wood blocks.

      I use the same method for fur dressing, fur pieces, garment, wall hangers, and mounting whole mammals, the  only thing different finishing.

Thank you! I don't know why I hadn't thought of that... I found some replacements from the places you suggested. I'll start shopping!

Ya know, I was a bit confused by what my boss meant when he said "breaking off" as well. I went down and checked it, and there's just nothing on the right side. No bone core or sheath. I'll look in to epoxy! I'll also see if I can pull it out of the freezer next week to get a better judge as to what's going on with it. Thank you, George!
The Taxidermy Industry / Re: McKenzie

Im pretty happy with my explanation above as to why McK prices are where they are. I dont see the debate, the preferential treatment, or the coming to their defense. The reasons are clear, just not what people wanna hear. And also, shipping and handling IS both shipping costs, plus handling. When I crate a mount to ship, I dont charge the amount the material costs, I charge for the time to measure, figure, build and load that crate...handling. Thats NOT gouging sir, its simple business.

And for what its worth, although McK used to own this site, I dont feel any obligation to side with them. I havent been contacted by that company in over a year. I do business with them, but thats it.
Skulls and Skeletons / Re: Attaching boar skull to plaque
« Last post by George Roof on Yesterday at 10:56:13 PM »
Personally, I think the tutorial Michael P had is the best method I've seen lately.  He sinks a small 1x2 into the brain cavity perpendicularly and fills it with Bondo.  Cut a hole in a board to allow the 1x2 to slide through and the skull set flat on the board.  Mark the 1x2 atop the board the skull is setting on.  Paint it white.  Now set your skull down on a panel and gently mark where the 1x2 sets on the panel.  Dirll two guide holes inside this marked area.  Take two long dry wall screws and screw through the panel up into the 1x2 until it's flush with your panel.
