    Kings for me...

    Salmon that is. And a Specklebelly on deck. I don't mind doing fish, other than they take away from my true passion of waterfowl.

    Abyorth, thanks for sharing that pic, very nice.
    Hoss, That's some serious grooming going on sir! Love the presentation...(I don't give critiques as I don't believe I'm qualified to do so...I just enjoy seeing the work.) 8)
    Meopilite - great bench shot!
    Rhodes - those fish bring back memomories...I used to mount 100 deer, 60 predators and about 150 fish a year before I was able to specialize in only birds :D
    daniel - I'm waiting to see some of your great work Sir...or at least a habitat base (ground work) ;)

    I got a PM asking me about this thread last night and here's how I explained it:

    You can go to a furniture store and see a beautiful table expertly crafted on display OR you can go to where they make them and see them being put together by the wood workers...to me, lots more fun!!

    King Eider, nice lookin birds! Lee, I knew what a Harris hawk is BUT I had to Google "niltava", coming from you I figured it to be a slang word for "hot chick" ;D LOL. Pics would have helped me clarify that without the aid of Google. ;) LOL
