Take those antlers and gore him for all that he had done :)
Ignorant boilers must die lol.
Have you tried the soaps or candles section of Hobby Lobby or Michael's or other craft stores? It feels like I've seen things like that in those areas, though I'm not sure if it's the right sizing for you.
Beginners / References
« Last post by akvz on Today at 11:00:24 AM »
I didn't know where to put this, exactly, so I'm putting it here. I am an artist before a taxidermist, and reference is just as important to both crafts... I do some animation work and sites like this have proven to be quite helpful:


It has a few categories, sadly no pheasants and not a lot of commonly mounted animals, but if you click on a video like this, you can then use the buttons on the right side to look at the video, frame by frame, which may help you to figure out how the animal works and how to set up your mannequin correctly.

If you have a nice camera, you should be able to go to a zoo/ranch/etc. and film an animal which you can then slow down for great, free reference!


This site you have to pay for but references like these are worth it for the hours of work you won't have to redo or struggle with. It's only $78 for a year, with a DVD, and you can access the site the entire time. The education package is even cheaper but does not come with a DVD, so it's up to you on what you'd like to use. The videos are high quality and come frame by frame.

So, if you're looking for reference of the animal you'd like to mount, try and see if  you can't find animation references... I use 3D models on occasion, but I also rig them and created them and they will not be as accurate as the flesh-and-blood creature.
This bear is located in southwest Wyoming about 1 1/2 hours south of Jackson Hole.  I am willing to ship this bear myself to the lower 48 for free.  Feel free to contact me with any questions at 307-248-3300.  Thanks

Most business with family members eventually turns sour.   Take it to another taxi for a skull transplant, and forget about restitution from your cuz...you'll only get heartburn trying to get him to make it right.

The shed connector system is awesome!  Just because someone can't figure something out doesn't mean the product is junk.  Once you get the cups on, lock them down with apoxy sculpt. Unless you have to think inside the box all of the time.

I'm looking for two moose antlers only ???
