    to add to this: for close up shots like for the eyes and nose use the 'macro' setting on your camera to get them in focus. It's almost always symbolized by a flower on a button or in your camera's shooting menu. Hold the shutter down half-way till it beeps or gives you a green light telling you its focused, then press all the way to take the picture. Make sure to take it off macro when you're done.

    I've got a ? to ask and don't know if i'm in the right place to ask. Anyway, i'm looking to find someone close to were I live here in s/e Wisconsin that can do a dry tanning on a black bear for a rug to be done with a quick turn around time to be done. I myself would be doing the rug. I just need it to be tanned to have a rug done. Thank you all very much for your time & if anyone that can help me please contact me at [email protected]

    Hi. I am replying to this because I don't really know what category my questions should be in... I have a full body mount 10 point whitetail buck that I have some help mounting. I am using this mount in a way that will show it's underside. I need a reference and or guide to reconstruct life-life testicles and male parts of the buck because these parts will certainly show in the pose and should be played up for their masculine effect int this mount. Any idea where I can look for this sort of thing on-line to reconstruct? I am somewhat new to taxidermy but am a sculptor so any suggestions are within reach. Thanks!
