    Great ideas and mounts everyone.
    Terry, the first time I saw pics of your mounts was at the Lanai check station.
    In the bird section there was someone looking for an Erkel's Francolin, maybe you can help with that.

    those are absolutely amazing!!! I love looking at mounts that show action. I'm definitely gonna try some of those air mounts but on a smaller scale, bobcats and foxes or something of that size. awesome thread please keep posting, and thanks for the ideas.
     
  9. Dennis your work is absolutely amazing!!

    trappersteph now you can have it...

    Any instruction on how these large mounts attach to eachother? Must be some THICK rods with the lions and kudu.

    These mounts are a great inspiration, that's for sure!

    I've talked about a mature sika stag lifesize skin with 2 sets of sika hunters now. Need 2 real nice eastern coyotes. "Drama on the Delmarva". Canis latrans meets cervus nippon yakushimae in the marshes of Dorchester county MD.

    timwilly I lost my agenda !!!

    I've seen the leopard and the springbok picture before and I still think it's one of the nicer "air mounts" by Dennis.
    To me it just catches the moment and has such a great flow and pizzes me off that I'm not that talented...LOL.

    Cool thread !!! Absolutely killer mounts !!!

    Not many of us get the opportunity to work with leopards, lions, tigers or even wolves. But don't let that stop you. Any animal, no matter how small can be an air mount, such as the squirrel below. From my experience, people remember a great air mount for a long time and it sets one apart from the crowd.
    Right now I'm working on a mongoose that has surprised a blue pheasant, and they are both airborne.

    I like that one beter than Chucks, you notice you can't see the wire, but you can see the wood base
    How is that pheasant holding onto that wood, the G force must be incredible, he's got some strong legs.... ;D

    I guess you didn't like the way that one turned out EH ;D J

    This is a durabliltiy test we run at MST. To be considered for this program the outstanding balance must be delinquent. You'd be surprised. I had to throw it three times to get the right photographic angle. It held up well and is back on display. LMAO!
