    Blake, It actually mounted up OK. Don't "dread" them LOL. as you skin them apply borax liberally. This includes stuffing the mouth with borax before inverting the head, If possible just spot wash and fluff in PS. If the skin needs to be completely washed use tide w/downy in small quantity, soak in FRESH gas and then "fluff" in PS it truly does work well.
     
  10. Looks badass Eugene! You going to tackle the white tipped next? that would be something most have never seen. Great work on a bird that is like a bad bad dream to work on.
