  4. Re: How about a Challenge (like old times!)

    A marten challenge would be neato if more than 3 people were going to participate. But that was not the case, so we will do a coyote challenge. This will only be the second coyote challenge, I hope it is as good as the first! These are just for fun!

    Here are the rules...

    The Rules:

    One coyote mount, any pose, any type of base. Shoulder mount type pedestal things are allowed.
    Two photos allowed per entry. Pictures should be around 500px by 700 px. Please downsize your photos to 250 kb or less.
    Pics must be taken OUTSIDE (no fancy backdrops! please no photoshopping!).
    Entries must be submitted by March 1st, 2015 by private message or email.
    When you take your pictures, remember that we are going for the "alive" look, so it looks better when it is on the grass or by trees.

    This is a "Taxidermists' Choice" challenge, therefore the winner will be decided by a poll. The mounter of each coyote will remain anonymous until the voting is over. So when you finish your coyote and take the 2 photos, you can PM or Email them to me ([email protected]) by March 1st, and I will post each group of photos with a number on a poll thread. If you send them in an email, be sure to include your taxinet user name, and put "coyote challenge" in the subject so I know it isn't spam.

  6. Hey!

    This is the final day to send pictures for the challenge! I was worried, because there wasn't many entries. But I just got quite a few today so Hooray! Thank you to everyone participating! I will work on uploading them tonight and post the poll tomorrow morning.

    Ahhhhh almost forgot! Sending now
     
  8. Codi I have to confess that my mount is not complete. No real excuses, I was on schedule three weeks ago but the weather hasn't cooperated. This afternoon is the first time since then I've been able to airbrush outside. Lesson learned... Stop procrastinating and build the paint booth before spring winds arrive. Jaw set will go in tonight and plan to mount her this coming weekend, then I'll do the squirrel to complete the display.
    I am looking forward to seeing everyone else's mounts, good luck to all who have submitted.
