    I snapped a quick shot of a blue goose I just put together. I thought I'd add to the thread to keep it lively. Great shop pics so far.

    Nice Pat, love the pose. Glad to see you gave up a little time from shooting geese to mount one. Your pics on 'ducks of the year' are killing me. I would love to have one of those tiny canadas!!!

    My "studio" :D :D :D... That's funny. The garage part is right. The rest of my work area flows over into the house...hahaha. Its a real mess. I dream of one day actually having a real shop like you've got Eugene. That place is REALLY nice looking. Thanks for the kind words on the flyers. Its amazing I actually get things done in my limited space, but I have gotten by so far. When it comes time to do several turkeys or big geese I run out of room very quickly.

    Phil, I had to mount deer, predators, fish and snakes for quite a few years while I built up a Birds Only business. I have a wholesale account holder from way back that still sends me snakes with batches of birds as he is deathly afraid of them. I still do them as it's a nice diversion for a day or two every once in a while ... and they make me want to get back to the feathered stuff quickly. :) That rattle in the pic goes on a diamondback that I have to mount sometime this next month for him.

    IT'S CHRISTMAS TIME IN SOUTH MISSISSIPPI ;D ;D ;D

    One of my better clients from NY sent me 16 birds today and these 7 seven he gifted to me. I don't get much chance to get true Blacks, Goldeneyes, or Oldsquaws in the cypress lakes I hunt. I can't wait to do these. ;D
