  1. Like a lot of you I have several personal pieces from the last few years to do. Decided to start throwing them in the mix instead of putting them off any longer. Gonna prep this form down and work on the back tonight, get it ready for tomorrow. Took this deer with my bow in 09, will be cool to get him done.

    Post some pics when you get him mounted up. I have used that form in the past and really like the look of it.

    Any chance you could do some close up photography as you go, and put it in the forms without capes thread? especially the claywork around the eyes?
  12. Steve, I might be able to get a few pic's. My claywork is pretty simple.

    Matt I still can't decide if I will make it a wall ped or floor ped...worse than a customer. ::)

  15. Hey Dennis, I see a McKenzie hanger on the Oryx, have you had any problem with them taking the weight of stuff bigger than Deer?

    Just have to ask. I use a good amount of those Coombs wall ped mounts and is it me or is the nostril size just ridiculous?? I use mostly the bigger sizes like the 23 and 25" necks and I have never had a cape fit the nose or nostril. I've been using replacement noses for them and it works out fine. The position is really nice!

    We have also decided to work some of our mounts and remounts into the rotation this year, instead of putting them off. We had some customers ask us to hold off until May to get theirs ready, so it will give us some time to work on ours for a change. It seems they get pushed off from year to year. We have 10 in the house that are 15 or more years old and need to be redone. They are embarassingly bad! :) And we have two nice ones from this year.

  18. Cam, that Symitar is about as large as I will use the McKenzie hangers on but I have had no issues with them at all using 3 1" screws. Pretty solid...

    I agree with you on that. Flare is big, I just fix with a little clay to bring the top down, close it up some. I haven't had a fit issue, just don't like it that open.
  19. After a little delay, got him mounted up. Nice to do one for me.
