    As promised, I am putting together a Raccoon challenge for anyone who wants to participate. I really like how Codi has handled the Bobcat Challenges, so I am going to mirror it closely to how those have worked, since they went so well.

    The Rules are as follows:

    One raccoon mount, any pose, any type of base.
    Please send me three photos per entry. Be sure to get three clear pictures from different angles to show off your mount how you think it looks best. All pictures will be downsized to the same size to allow posting.
    Pics must be taken OUTSIDE (no fancy backdrops! please no photoshopping!). We want this to be a friendly taxidermy contest, not a photography contest.
    Entries must be submitted by April 30th, 2011.


    This is a "Taxidermists' Choice" challenge, therefore the winner will be decided by a poll. The mounter of each raccoon will remain anonymous until the voting is over. So when you finish your raccoon and take the 3 photos, email them to me ([email protected]) by April 30th, and I will post each group of photos with a number on a poll thread. Be sure to include your taxinet user name in the e-mail.


    The prize is still to be determined, let me hear your thoughts on this.

    This will be the first Raccoon Challenge or hopefully many more. Who's name will forever be known as winner of the first Raccoon Challenge?

    If you would like to participate in this challenge, please say so on this thread.

    I'd like to participate. Putting some raccoons in to tan later this week. Hopefully I can squeeze mounting one in between all the other work I have to do.

    Does it have to be an adult? I have both adults and juvenile, wasn't sure since all I've seen posted in challenges so far have been adults...
