    Wow! That has to be some kind of rush job! Funerals usually only give you a weeks notice, AT BEST!

    How could you ever get them dry in time? Either way, those were very nicely done, Wolfgang and take'em.

    This group is for someone that has always supported my taxidermy habit since the late seventies. I hope it turns out. It's been a work in and out of progress for a couple years. I think I'm rounding the corner. ;)

    The habitat will attach to the oak wall mount in the background.

    SteveP The duck I mounted for him years ago. We just took it off the base that it was on and added it to the wreath. I only had one day to put something together. Here are some pics of the birds that have over run my shop. I NEED MORE WALL SPACE!!! I still have a freezer full of swans but have no more room for dry time. The goose was the biggest one I have taken in 14.9 lbs.

    Thanks Becky!
    Rick it's kind of what we do only they do short term.
    Steve P. same here the 3 birds were slated for E-Bay sales later in the week so they were dry but no base work was done.
    It was an easy switch to the one plaque. I only had one afternoon to get them done and shipped out.
    Take Em nice group as well.
     
  7. Easiest mount i've done in years, no extra sewing and it just fell into place.

    Here is a Sora Rail that I did for the State. The poor little thing was ran over by a car, the head and beak was crushed. :'(
