    I thought that feral camels were fair game in Australia, with no limits and no closed seasons?
    I'm not sure what the carcasses are used for, if anything, but it sure looks like they have a lot of them.

    I too, as many of you, love the show and it does portray us in a good light...But as far as this topic of discussion on the camel...wow...What a work of art that form is..I guess the words "Art Form" take on a new meaning..lol....Never been to alaska, but would love to do some hunting up there one day before I leave this ole world and if I do I'll stop by and say hello..Probably get tired of that with the show and all..Glad to see ya here Mr. Knight..Keep up the good work...

    Russell, I love the show. It really depicts what goes on behind the scenes and you've got quite a group of characters. No more wondering why I stay a 1-man operation. Can't watch it on Thursday nights, but thank God for the internet. Keep it coming, cause I'm learning stuff from you too!

    sorry just read this thread and george asked me a question...in my years at the museum i did mount a few camels.. we always did carcas casting back in the early 70's when i did them...very old school....plaster casting, paper forms, sculpting up with clay on the paper forms, normal for lifesize mounts.....we never mounted heads....the museum would not display anything but lifesize mounts....over the years the molds would get cracked and pitched.....a new one made if ever the need came up again....no one back then had ever thought of using fiberglass to mold....thanks for asking george

    glad all you folks enjoyed the camel form, it was a bull i hand almost 20 years ago,, no skull either,
    Knights did an excellent job on the neck and shoulders.
    Most of my clients get the head and neck only mounted as they tend to be too large for most trophy rooms here.

    Back then the only one available was the Jonas one which size wise looks like those racing camels with the small petite heads
    These large bulls from the Outback ARE HUGE

    Now days i often hand carve "one of forms", especially for the marsupials which i do in all species and sizes.

    If your after a smaller female version, i have a head for one of those as well

    Are you saying that Russel Knight didn't carve the head for that camel form? Oh the deception! :'(

    Wait, if he didn't carve it himself, how could he sell it as his own? Wouldn't that be like what someone got in trouble for a few years ago? As far as pouring foam, I always start by cutting open a large box and putting it on the floor so any foam that spills doesn't bond to my cement. LOL.

    Exactly that.

    The head and part neck is a form i carved and molded back in the late 80, s as there was no one with a large bull anywhere in the industry that i knew of, other than a small one Jonas had.
    I sold a copy of that form to Knights over 2 years ago, they expanded on it , i approved, good luck to them.

    I had always wanted to make a fUll shoulder version, but as each bull varies so much in size,,and few customers down here either have the room, or the money to pay for such a huge "feral " trophy,,it never eventuated

    Ive sold plenty of head / neck versions to other guys,, and i make more money out of my Shoulder Sambar Deer forms that i do from camels around the globe.

    But if your in Australia, and needing of one, i have both a bull and a cow,,
