Best 'Saves'?

Discussion in 'Lifesize Mammals' started by Pandion haliaetus, May 7, 2016.

  1. What are some of the best 'saves' you guys have had? I.E. terribly ripped or slipped pelts that you had manage to look good when mounted.

    Hi,

    Flash on camera accentuated the painted area alot. Pictures are 20 years old with a crappy camera I used to have.

    Ears were soaked, and opened up the backside of ear skin, and epoxied to straighten out bent ear, and cupping.
    I believe start to finish, I had 2 1/2-3 hours in the job.
