    Why can't people learn how to hang a deer properly? ::)
    Anyways a guy asked me if I could fix this and I told him all I can do is try.Well rehydrated the puppy and it was falling a part just looking at it :p I'm sitting there thinking, this thing isn't going to be fixable.Kept on a truckin and here she is ;D was gonna do a step by step ,but the camera battery died and I wasn't gonna wait on it to recharge ;D
    Before :eek: :eek:

    You got something against black shoe polish noses? LOL
    2 reasons ;) 1. People are starting to pick out my work(in my neck of the woods) by the nose.Didn't want people to think I did the mount job ,when I ONLY did a nose job. 2. The original was BLACK and that's what the guy was use to(looks blacker cause I put gloss on mine).
     
  7. Nice save...I was wondering about the nose as well, but now it all makes sense ;) Just curious but why didn't the guy take it back to the original taxi
     
  8. Very nice save!

    LOL, k got that outta the way ;D the easiest way to explain it , the deer doesn't belong to the guy that asked me to fix it ,but I've got 3 ducks and a turkey in the works for him right now :-\ I'll let you figure all that out.
