    Well this is the first thing I've done out of the norm...I've only ever done Deer, a Red Fox, and Coyotes. Definitely don't really care if I get another one of these lol. This one was killed on some game ranch in Ohio in the middle of Summer, so the coat isn't all that great on it....But, anyways here's my first Ram.

  2. Looks great Jenna!!! Keep up the good work

    You're doing some beautiful work.PERSONALLY I tip my horns forward just a bit. Yours are probably anatomically accurate, but the tipping embellishes the appearance IN MY OPINION.

    Hi Jena, that is a very clean looking mount your customer should be pretty happy with your efforts putting that one together. Keep up the good work!

    Just missing the bleat! Looks great. Are the ears bondo? Look nice and crisp.

    Very impressive. Not the easiest critter to mount. Nice clean work around the eyes and nostrils. The transition from hair to the base of the horns is also very clean.

    beautiful mount! I just got done mounting/finishing my fourth ever deer...and today I wet up the muzzle so I could fix the nostrils. I most often mount animals without horns or antlers in 14 yrs I can think of less then 7 'ungulates' that I've mounted. :) It is fun to do something different!

    I am know I am not the best person to give a suggestion, gvien my lack of experience with such animals, but perhaps the back of the eyelid should not be so 'plump'? It is hard to tell from the two dimmensional pix. :)

    Oh, and I don't see how people use liners, bondo ears are not hard to complete and if done correctly, never give a problem.

    Thanks all! These things are pretty easy to mount really other than the 5million holes I put in it with the shaver lol, not quite as thick as a deer cape. And the fact that it took forever for the horns to pop off.
  17. very nice
