Hey John, I must have a knack for viewing your page at the right time. That's a beautiful form you have their, lol.

How did it mount up?

Also do you mind if I use your pics on the eyes for my use for people asking about the TE325WD's?

Looks like your doing a great job for your students and your shop.

Hope things are going well for you.

Rudy I just wanted to say Thanks for all those Kind words and YES I was using one of your manikins the Semi Upright Rt Turn Sh Mt No. 7535 R.  Again, Yes you can use my "Eye Training 101" on setting these 325 WD eyes which are the Pre-rotated type in Plastic.

Folks this past week we mounted up this deer using what I call the complete EPPLEY system.  There is no doubt about it in my mind that the Ohio Taxidermy Supply Co. produces what I will call the BEST whitetail manikins on the market.  Bryan Eppley is one of the All Time GREATS in sculpting Whitetail Deer manikins.  His accomplishments are impeccable in winning at least 13 World Sculpting Titles and it really shows in his sculpting of these mannikin's.  His latest series are UNBELIEVABLE and let me get right to the point.  In these latest series you will notice the advance sculpting of the total eye.  The carancula area has been reshaped and the nictating membrane has a new shape also.  Now once you cut the nictating membrane for placement you just place it in position.  I have photo's on the eye which you will be able to see for yourself.  Now the ear butts on this manikins are designed for whatever ear you want to use whether it's a bondo or earliners.  It's just simple to do and on this one I used the 360 type liners with the ear butt's added to it and the nose is again an Eppley replacement nose.  So, I have found out that if you use what I call Quality products your work has to improve and using these manikins makes it so much easier to mount up. 

Brian is now in the process of sculpting many more Whitetail manikins and I can't wait to convert my entire deer mounting system into the "Total Eppley System".  Thanks Brian for all your hard work and skill.  So, Rudy below you will see what your system can deliver under just ordinary conditions in mounting up a Whitetail deer.  Thanks again for all your support and Kind words.  Below you will see a photo of the SemiUpright Manikins I used No. 7535R and the inside detail of these eye sockets.

Best,

Ha John, your too kind.  I really do think you plug our products better than we do though, lol.

Keep on making everything look easy John, and we'll have hunters that think they can mount one and knock it out of the park like this everyday.

We will keep trying to get these forms done for you, I know dad has the 7 1/4 almost done, I just need to get his hands off it so I can lay the glass to it.

We mounted up another Deer Head this week using the NEW Eppley Semi-Sneak Left Turn No. 7536L.  OH, before I continue on I would like to Personally Congratulate Bryan Eppley for winning another World Sculpting deerTitle at this last World Show.  What an eye Bryan has for detail in whitetail sculpting and they don't get much better than this.  I am posting photo's of this manikins we used this week to mount up this deer head. 

OK, now is the time to book for a detailed whitetail mounting class in an environment conducive to learning like ONE on ONE.  Thanks.

OH, I can't forget to say THANKS to Mr. Ken Edwards for letting us all communicate here on his Taxidermy Net. 

Best,
