    Let's start a new two week period again!! It's amazing how the time flows...it's like yeaterday we started last time! Here in Finlan we have started a hunting season with pigeons and duck's...soon will start hare season and after that grousehunting...new work to us taxidermists on the way!! ;)

    From first week I've chosen a great duck group by GC!! CONGRATS!!!! Thats a really artistic piece and fine work all the way!! From second week I've chosen another duck group from KMA,CONGRATS!!! Many of you thought that this is the piece and I'm with you! I surely liked those pheasants by Tim too,but this just happened to be duckweek again! Those both are really great pieces with lot of work and effort!!!! :)

    Have a nice period in BotW,let's hope we have a great period again!! Thanks!!! :D

    Thanks for supporting me...those are beautiful pieces and are well deserving the BotW title!!! Hard work pays at least little attention....And I'm sure those pieces get attention where ever they are....

    Thanks JP! I'm glad people like the mount...it was a fun piece to put together. Gadwalls are beautiful birds that are too often overlooked since they aren't a bright, flashy bird.
    I will post one this week to go along with KMA's Woodduck theme....have a great week everyone. ;D

    Just finished up this project last night. First swimming pose. I remember shooting this bird. It was first Goldeneye I killed. It was a long shot I normally dont take but it was a slow morning and he was by himself flying over water so I thought I would give it a try. I led him way out and in one shot he went down. Charlie, my first hunting lab went after him and duck started diving but ol' Charlie got him. Kept him in freezer to get mounted but after some time I decided I did'nt want to spend the money so I took him out of the bag and just threw him in freezer to use for a dog training bird. After about three years I started learning taxidermy myself and decided to try and salvage the bird. Anyway here is the result. May not be the best and sorry if story was boring but its kinda cool to me.

    First Goldeneye
    First Hunting Lab
    First Swimming pose
    First rock I made (bondo)
    First time to use ice in a mount
