    I'm on a mission! Saturday, Sunday & Monday, 3 days, 3 longhorns and 2 elk. Gotta stay caught up and I figured this weekend would be a good one for very little interruption.

    Wish me luck, if you don't here from me Tuesday, start looking! LOL

    Think I might have a reenforcement coming Sunday and Monday so that would be SWEEEET! Either way, I can do it :)

    Really excited about this group longhorns, Jerry Huffaker and Olaus Lyons gave me some tips that i'm gonna use to take the mount a little farther and Tony at Tony at Tohickon came through with the eyes.

    That's what I LOVE about this business, try something different and keep it intresting and it never gets boring.... that helps prevent burnout :)

    Good luck. After doing nothing but lifesize work for so long I would just about kill for a few shoulder mounts, sad thing is now they are like haveing sex for the first time..... it's over way to fast.LOL I am sure that with what you may have learned at Rays you can do it.
  12. Looks like your weekend is full plus some. Good luck and I'll be waiting for photos of those longhorns. I will be working every day but Sunday, maybe a little on Sunday, but no big projects. Fish, Skulls and the really big project... a weasel! :)

    Quit taking all those darn vacations and the bulls wont pile up. Taxidermist's don't get to go on vacations didn't you know that. Just messing, good luck on all that BULL. Speaking of vacation I just set up my trip to Alaska for this next year. Fun, fun, fun.

    Well no gold star this time. I got three bulls done in three days, but there were just too many alterations to do on the 3 longhorns so they would fit right to worry about the elk.

    Thanks to Taylor Polson who lent a hand on Saturday and Lee Owens who helped yesterday and today and also to Jerry and Olais who I got some GREAT tips from to help me spice them up a little.

    Gonna knock out the Pedestal elk tomorrow and the bugling elk Wednesday. That leaves me Thursday to get 3 days worth of work done cause Friday & Saturday are the NASCAR races! Vroom vroom! :)
    I think Sunday I'm sleeping!

    If I had the money I would have paid for your flight here! You already know your World Show bull was one of my favorite's. Two i've seen close to comparison to yours was a bull Bones Johnson mounted and Jerry Huffakers. All 3 of you make them look so damn good! You 3 together could make a 'Running With The Bulls' scene and make it look real! :)
