Folded front legs

Submitted by DG on 12/19/05 at 6:51 PM. ( ) 24.3.4.229

I am mounting a deer on the McKenzie half deer laying down with the front legs folded underneith. What do you do with the skin behind the knee where the leg bends? I am really puzzeled with what to do. I was thinking about cutting in a football shape,sewing, and then bend the leg into shape and run a screw down through the top of the leg into the bottom. Any help or suggestions would be great.

....and tuck. You'll need to open a space on the form (relief cuts)to accept the hide, same as you would on any lifesize mount, or your skin will bunch in that area. ie: armpit areas of lifesize forms. Marc R
