    thank you Milo my friend,

    good advices from you and Karin,i have two videos and how to mount this beautiful creature and bunch of tutorials from my really good friends Bryan Foley and the others. i used to use caulk in chukers and the other birds so it will not be a problem i think....i will use foot to foot method if i want to cut around the bill,but why i should use it when i will use the real skull?i can easily turn the head out like normal way which is used for chukers and other uplands,eh?

    Wow! Excellent work from everyone...we are lucky to be able to see such phenomenal work from around the world.


    Dennis, I can't wait to see all my friends in Kansas! I have just acquired the Widgeon for the Seminar and I think we are going to have lots of fun. I spoke with Robert Martinez last night and he said that he is going to make the trip up with a load of cedar driftwood as well. I am probably going to get my hiney handed to me, but I am hoping to have something put together by the time the show rolls around. I'll see y'all there Dennis! :)

    A couple from this past week (both were shot hard, so I was glad to get them together :eek:):

    The only thing I have to say is , WOW !!!
    Matthias, I love the kea, looks busy and alive,
    RusTax, as I said to your magpie, I would take everything for my collection, all of the birds you show here in the past look great and especially that grey owl is a hammer,
    Matt, great waterfowl-work as ever, I think I have to come over the ocean, to have a workshop or a seminar with you,
    Feather, I only have done 2 of this nice birds, but no of them looked good as yours,

    really fantastic stuff (love the hoody & woody KMA - always just flawless) Rus Tax - that has got to be one of the smoothest most accurately put together owls I've ever seen - OUTSTANDING (great hooded crow too)

    Such beautiful work!! Those owls are really nice. Are the eyes going to stay partially closed? I like it a lot! Not to slight the other birds which are quite nice too! Feather, that Bluewing local ?
