Nice work everyone.


Hate the bird but decided to post it since it's the first one I've finished in two years.  I called my brother after skinning it out and told him it wasn't worth mounting (one wing broken, the other shattered, broken leg), but he really wanted it done and talked me into doing it for him.  Can't blame it all on the shoddy specimen...lot of errors made on my part.

Great mounts everyone!  Want to quick share this beautiful turkey mount done by Chris Dischler of Nature's Own Taxidermy out of Spring Green WI.  Chris used our Walnut Hollow Oak Two Tier Bases in this competition mount.  Chris was awarded a First Place Blue in the Masters Division and the NWTF Best Turkey Award at the 2012 Wisconsin Show.  I'm fired up to go Turkey hunting, just need the weather to straighten out!!

A few recent raptors to add, not up to the quality of the owls and redtail above, but then, not many are!

Feather, indeed there are lot of wonderful projects displayed here. But I gotta say, this Osprey somehow strikes me as one of my favorites. GREAT job. I cannot tell from the angle, but with the "wet head" so well done on the bird, a wet fish and foot would be neat too.

Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well-preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming, 'WOW - What a Ride!'

Feather -  definately a beautiful job on the Osprey - if you notice on the edge of each feather it comes to a point and had a tiny "frey" this is because its a juvenile bird - those tips are were the down breaks off the shaft as the mature feathers first grow in - this is a bird just out of the nest and flying - once it molts into its second set of feathers the feathers will have a more rounded edge and will lose that buff colored tip -

great mount
