    I have to share this. :D Usually it's the other way around: a dad being excited for his daughter getting into taxidermy, but in my situation it's the opposite.
    This is my dad's first mount (in a long time) He dabbled in a couple small taxidermy projects before I was born, but got out of it. Now I am excited he's developing an interest in taking up a new hobby. ;D

    Nice job on the mink.....so was it your dad's interest in taxidermy that got you into taxidermy?

    Actually I've been fascinated by taxidermy since a young age. I decided I was going to start at the age of 14 when I killed my first deer with the new .243. My dad told me I could not have the little buck mounted because it was too expensive, so I decided to try it myself.

    Nice job! That is great he is getting back into it. He can watch things during the season while you get out in the woods more!(LOL)

    Nina, its good you got your dad back into it. always nice for dad and daughter to stay close.

    john thats great that the whole family is getting into it. but if your like me thats the only time you have with them. so they may have figured if they cant beat you to join you.
