So I haven't been "on" the forum a lot lately BUT I am aware that people did really enjoy seeing people post up "mostly" finished bird mounts On BIRD OF THE WEEK. Some liked the "competition", some didn't. :) Some liked JP's Picks, some didn't  :) I know I will miss looking over others birdwork so  I thought it might be a good idea to start a "BIRDS OF THE YEAR" just separating the thread out by the year. No weekly "winners", just a thread to see others finished bird mounts/pieces. A place perhaps to get a compliment, but mainly to show others our work. In the tradition of Jp's BOTW lets keep it critique free please. I will post up a photo and we will see if we can get another thread going that everyone can once again see others work. If its a "Bad" idea I guess the thread wont last. Just an idea?! :) 2012 is Close enough IMO that I will start off with the first BOTY post. Have a GREAT 2012 everyone!! :)

Here's a "chicken" I mounted years ago but finally did some base-work on. Post up everyone! Beginners to Advanced, doesn't matter, lets see your work ;)

Thanks JP. Just continuing what you started really. :) Just a few small changes. I am GLAD people are posting some "WOWSER" work up  ;)  I always have enjoyed seeing the talent and diversity that BOTW presented. Thanks for the stump info Blake! Versa Max EXCELLENT piece, I like the composition a lot, Looks similiar to a mallard/pintail hen I have in the freezer, Just pulled a cast off her head today. Drakeman I see no pics LOL ;) Rick, I think Drake mallards are underrated. Beautiful! Jeremy looks busy as usuall nice work everyone! :)

Here's another bird I put out in my last finish cycle. A "lovely" early Sept. Sandhill. Very tough bird to make smooth with all the feather loss. Glad I did not have to mount the whole thing LOL  :D

Eugene, that crane looks great.  I am going to Lubbock to hunt them in a couple weeks.  Can't wait to mount one for my collection.   Believe it or not, my wife and I are going for our 19 th anniversary.  All I had to do was promise some fine dining that evening.  Canada's in the morning then cranes in the evening followed by nice dinner!!  Yeehaw! ;D
