    I'm a birdman but i cant get my birds to look anywhere like the best on here do,so i was thinking lets do a squirrel challenge! i love doing squirrels and there are so many different poses. i would love to try at this. lets do a ribbon or little trophy or something for the winners.1st,2nd and 3rd. i don't know how to post pics on here so i would need help with this. anybody interested in doing this. lets get some ideas? lets all agree on a pose and a specie.or we could just any pose of any squirrel! i think this would be fun. all input would be appreciated. we'll leave the judging to the viewers here (poll).thanks, Brian Minnick

    I would be interested as well I have a squirrel in the freezer I have been meaning to get mounting anyway. But I spit a few of his toes when skinning so I got a little bit of extra fixing to do on him but I am game :)

    Count me in!. Ive got a squirrel lost in the freezer...This will give me good motivation to get him mounted up.

    we could judge based on 3 parts, the squirrel itself, the pose you choose, and the overall display....such as what its mounted to or on...habitat etc....

    Sounds like a great idea. I've got a bunch in the freezer...if I can just put away the lambs and goats for a while and get one mounted!

    Re: lets do a squirrel challenge?

    this is cool alot of people interested. i see that there will be some nice looking ones for sure. allot of talent here so this will be a real challenge. OK. so how much time does everyone need to order forms ,prep squirrel etc , etc, lets all agree on a date. how about April 13,2009. basically three weeks. does that work?

    snowhare, anybody from any country and any specie squirrel is totally fine with me.I love your work and I'd love to see what you choose. your work is top notch. I cant wait.

    I have the Ohio convention this weekend but I will unthaw my squirrel and get a form ordered for it before and get it mounted right after the show. What kind of pose you thinking?

    Re: lets do a squirrel challenge?

    you can do any pose you like. to be honest i have a few poses in mind. then again theres so many to choose from its hard to say. I'm going to include habitat. I encourage all to add habitat.
