    What is your favorite coyote head and why?

    I'm curious to hear as well. Just finished trying to straighten out a head on one of the noonkster LS coyotes...I don't think it coulda been any more jacked up

    I like the Darrin Flynn forms. Joe Coombs has them. These form are for larger coyotes however. They have a full chest/brisket which makes the mount look nice as well as a nicely proportioned head and snout. They have a 4 1/4 eye to nose measurement. I have won some blue ribbons with these forms. MacKenzie does have a nice wall pedestal coyote form that is pretty good for (I think) 3 3/4 inch eye to nose animals.

    I like the ones from Ozark Woods that Brian Harness sculpted and come available on his Divide and Conquer forms. You can buy just the heads for about $12 each (last time I bought them) I show and use the head here in both these tutorials I did a while back.

    I agree, I like the Harness forms. I just did one (unnamed, see above response) from another sculpter and what a diff. Had alot of rework, still looked odd, IMO.
