    Re: *** Coyote Challenge *** Deadline 9/17

    I mounted a life sized coyote this week and didn't like the way the eyes were set. The shape of the eyes was perfect though. I finally decided to try adjusting one slightly and broke the eye. Grrr. I replaced the eye with another one that I luckily had on hand, but then noticed the pupils didn't match and were sharper on one than the other so I had to replace the other. If I can get them to look as good as before, I'll enter it. Every mount I learn something new.

    I have the skin thawing now! Its a Bob Wendt coyote that has been wet tanned and frozen for years, and I bought the form about that long ago too. Form alterations commencing...

    Thanks for this challenge- I'm FINALLY going to mount this coyote LOL.

    I send my pictures off, but of course after I mounted it and was going through the pictures I found lots of stuff I could have improved upon and done better, but the client had already picked it up. I won't win, but I already learned a lot and it will be fun so bring it on.

    I've gotten several entries so far, and all are super nice. I hope everyone else is working diligently on their coyote mounts. Also don't forget to downsize your pictures before sending them.

    Take care! from Codi

    I just finished spending 3 days of one-on-one training with Rick Carter and wish I could do my coyote now that I know what I know. He definitely takes your game up a notch or two.

    Well finished mounting my coyote yesterday. Dang what a pain, the form I wanted, could only be had in a size "almost" close enough, haha. Had to do a lot of cuting and reforming but its drying now. Not to bad for my first yote. Will post up once it is finished.

    Don't do that, follow the instructions at the beginning of the thread.

    Don't forget: pics must be taken outside! The reason for this rule is to be sure that people with fancy backdrops and such will not have an unfair advantage when it is time to vote.

    I am looking forward to getting more entries. All have been great so far!

    Take care, from Codi

    If it said undeliverable it is possible that you copy-pasted a space before or after it.
