Ok, so I only have experience working on birds and deer heads. But since I'm relatively new I'm looking to try new things. In the next few weeks I would like to do a small mammal life size mount. What is the best animal to start out on in your opinion? I was thinking about doing a squirrel or a coon simply because I have a plethora of both in the yard and freezer. Any advice from y'all on my first life size? Any tips or help would be greatly appreciated.
