  16. Nice trick... I've thought about that myself but haven't had the time to experiment.... Is it Plexi? or tempered?
  17. LordRusty

    LordRusty If I agreed with you, we'd both be wrong.

    You just LOST me on that one ??? Is there different kind of MIRRORS ? if so I don't know what it is(just some we had laying around) ::) in the pic the squirrel form is sitting on a 12" piece of MIRROR,when mounting a critter you would just cover your RODS with the MIRROR ;) just seeing if the IDEA would actually WORK, before I screwed up TWO mounts.
  19. Ok well Mirror would work but you would always see a reflection that would give it away. like your shoe, yourself or a strange chunk of ground.... BUT If you Dropped the rods and balanced them on a Piece of super clear Plexi or Tempered Glass you would see thru it to what ever was behind. Not just a reflection in a mirror... Which is fine when you can stage a mount on a background like grass... Obviously the glass could not support a Lifesize elk or moose, but it would be more than adequate for your squirrel.
