    Awesome, It looks like oldterryr mounted it himself! Now you've got the itch, you'll be mounting every critter you kill now.

    I like to encourage the beginners as much as anyone....that being said...you really need some reference photos to go by. The ears are way too far back, they need to be pointing forward, and they seem to have slid off to one side of it's head. The eyes need work too, they look bug eyed like my first coyote did. Pull the upper lid down over the top edge of the pupil..I've attached a picture of a coyote so you can see what i'm talkin about.

    You got to work with those eye's, they're way off. Don't get reference from someones site, get it from pictures taken from live animal....
     
  8. Yote's left eye is open with no expression. Great, great job for your first one.

    thanks guys for the feedback,my next one ,on the eyes i'm gonna put them in the form the morning i do it then if a pupil is off I can take a dental pick and adjust it,as far as the ears ,i bondo them and hung them off the edge of the table to set up,works great on deer ,but not real good on this,and i believe i'll buy some earliners just to use as referrence how they should be shaped,i use one forming my ear butts for deer and they look pretty good.the ears are down a bit but i was kinda going for a relaxed pose,like the one in the reference photos on this site.
    Thanks agian and any more comments or tips are greatly appreciated

    My suggestion is that if you are going to buy ear liners you should use them (not just for reference) . A nice crisp accurate ear can be acheived with an ear liner . Now, as for reference, there is plenty of it out there . When I mount anything I like to set up two pieces of cork board with all of my reference posted all over it . Put it close to your work area so you can refer to it when needed.

    It looks pretty good for your first one but I agree with the other guys you need some references
