  2. I just watched all the season of Mounted in Alaska.
    Thought it was great but not sure about the judging show .
    How does one mount an animal any animal and have it dry and painted in 2 days.
    My deer heads need 2-3 weeks to dry.
    Can someone answer this for me.

    I mounted a deer Sunday afternoon, the customer will be picking it up tomorrow night (Tuesday), then again it is like an oven here down in Texas right now :)

    In the winter 'if' i wanna dry something quicker I put it in the showroom which is insulated like a cocoon and it dries in a few days. In the summer I let it sit overnight, next morning make adjustments & set it out on the deck where it's HOT and then at night put it in the work are where the air conditioner is blowing COLD, put it back out in the morning, bring it in at lunch and finish in the afternoon.

    Don't know if it's the best or proper way, but it sure works :) LOL

    No more. It was cancelled and not renewed. Moving on ...
     
  12. Russel is asking that everyone who is a fan of the show. Go to facebook/history channel and tell them you want the the show back.
    I for one liked the show, It was a show about something i love to do. (taxidermy) So if you want it back, go and voice your anger for the cancellation of the show.

    Been there ... done that. As far as the network is concerned, it appears to be a dead issue.

    As much as I would love to see it back, if the ratings don't support it, it will not be back. Its a shame but everyday America has no interest in what goes on in a taxidermy studio. They are into all this "reality" crap that is the farthest thing from reality!

    That show was just as "far from reality" as any other show I've seen.

    Why is this a topic a year after the thread died?
