    Well I decided to give a full body coyote a try. This is my first attempt at a yote. The front left leg was almost shot off and I worried about sewing it up and looking ok as I wasn't sure how much was missing from the 12ga slug damage. He went home today and the customer seemed happy so I was relieved about it.

    I can't put my finger on it,but something about the muzzle or maybe the whole head appears to be slightly off a little. You did an excellent job on the body though and fixing the leg. ^^ I also love that you incorporated coyote body language into the mount by giving him an arch back to go along with his growling face expression.

    That form is from Mckenzie (CY-V5-OM) stalking, defensive pose. Nothing altered on him besides cutting out the mouth slot for the jawset. He has a 4-1/2" A-measurement but the form was actually shorter by an Inch on his actual length but it wasn't a problem with it being on the body end of it.
