    I love doing Birds in general. Nothing gives me such a feeling of accomplishment. Just wish I could do then better.
     
  2. I like doing fish the best but am probably better at doing birds.

    I need to make all the money I can in order to pay my bills and be able to afford a few hunting and fishing trips. Mounting fish puts the most money in the bank for the time and materials invested....so I like mounting fish the most. JL

    I get tired of doing deer day after day after day... My favorite thing to do in the shop is fish painting wether it's a skin mount or replica. I don't think I could ever get tired of that.
     
  5. I also enjoy mounting fish the most. It is to me more artistic to do the painting and habitat work that goes with fish.
     
  6. When I need to relax and find joy in doing taxidermy again (getting burned out every now and then) it is my lizards I love to mount. Them little dudes look like miniature dinosaurs and I enjoy the heck out of mounting them. :)

    Becky P One must believe the glass is half full.

    I like ducks the best, even though mine are nowhere near the best. LOL You can do so much with a duck, well any bird for that matter, you are not as limited to poses. (Except for customers how think they are all suppose to be flying. LOL)

    I like doing bears. Somethimes they can be a real....well, bear. I like the challanges you get with them. Altering forms, and such. The only thing I dont like about them is all the fat they have when skinning and fleching them. But I do like bears the best so I voted other.
     
  9. Guess what Bec, you will like your work a lot more come duck season. I'll see to that. ;D LMAO

    I like fish the best because I can turn so many more out, and that means more money. I do fish for several shops.

    Fish. I used to do a lot of deer mounts but after awhile they got monotonous. To me once you've seen one you've see 'em all.

    I would have to say deer. Both whitetail and mule deer.
