  2. Some beautiful mounts this month! I love that coyote! As a predator hunter who has seen many a coyote come in looking just like that! You nailed it!

  4. This is my first fawn... It's drying and still needs finish work. My daughter asked me for one when I first started taxidermy about 6 months ago. This fawn was from a game farm and was still born. It was like trying to mount a wet paper towel. LOL. I used the van dykes blue eyes. Since it was premature I assumed the eyes would be vivid blue. My daughter loves it, though doing another I think I would use the brown and blue fawn eyes by tohickon. Comments are appreciated...

    PS sorry for the poor picture quality. I will post better pics when finished out.

    Beautiful mounts Codi !!!!!
  7. Outstanding work everyone!
  8. I'm also doing a fawn and i would like to know where you did make your incision because the dorsal hair are very short.
  9. That fawn was belly cut. Since it was so small I had to cut the form down alot and its the smallest one made. When it came to getting the legs on the form I generally had to cut the front knees on the form and slide that part in the form then reattach the bottom of the leg at the knee and slide it on around. Im not sure how big your fawn is but the hair slips easy and you can't put much pressure on the skin when pulling taxing it on the form. I was generous with the hide paste to get it to slide on the form. I cut the form in half also to get it on due to the belly cut. Altering the form is easier than trying to pull at the hide and having it tear. You could case skin one too. I have 3 more to do that are for clients. On the standing one I cased it and on the laying one I did a belly cut and also cut a little on down each leg. I'd rather repair that than fight the hide on.
