    I wish I had a before picture to show you guys. But I don't, so going to try to discribe my terror.....
    I washed this pheasant and he was just wonderful looking. Put him in the washer to spin out the excess water. Opened the lid and the washer had "ate" him. I had over 2 cups of loose feathers, a body torn almost in half, and a tail torn into 3 big chuncks and 6 individual feathers! Knowing this was this guy's only pheasant and a possible once-in-a-lifetime bird, I tried hard to fix him. Here was the result......

    How funny Matt. I just got off the phone with Ted last night and he sold me on one of those too. Makes me feel like it was a good decision and money well spent knowing you are trying it also.

    is the new end flexible or stiff? It looks like it would do a good job either way. I like how they made the syringe "wings" bigger.
     
  6. it's stiff and works GREAT!!!!

    I put an extension tube on the caulk tube for turkeys but dint think of doing it for smaller birds, I like the syringe KMA. Some of these torn up birds I would never do if a customer brought them to me. You guys have must like the challenge lol, right now it is just a challenge to put together a regular looking bird.
     
  12. Hi guys just a question on the syringe tips your using,how easy are they to clean? hot soapy water

    Re: The "Before and After" Thread.

    Kinda taxidermy related. We will be doing a shoulder mount on this guy. I put an arrow in him in October and the dog lost the track. Figured he was dead....but 3 nights ago he messed up...for good. You just can't come out in front of my husband while it's still light enough to shoot.:eek:

    The 2.5 year old buck is just for size reference. That's a Boss Buck 400# feeder.
