    BOTM is a critique free thread where all can post their finished mounts. Thank you to all who participate.

    Hello all. I hope everyone is busy with work. It is that time of the year. I will try and jump start December BOTM. A nice greenwing teal drake. We have a lot of these little guys in Texas. Lets see some more posts, Paul.

    Nice job on the mallard pair spencer2. Thanks for posting. How are things with you Cindy?
     
  7. Well I tried taxidermy for the first time 6 years ago. I just finished my first duck/mount by myself. I made a few mistakes that I won't make on the next mount (legs a little far back, eye didn't line up with the artificial head after it was glued in place and a couple other small things). I'm happy with my sewing job as it seems hidden to me, and the fact I skinned it without putting any holes in the skin but fleshing was a whole other story lol...

    Hello Matt. You should be real happy with your first attempt at mounting by yourself. Nice job ! They get easier the more you do. Keep up the good work and thanks for sharing, Paul.

    We're still deer hunting so no duck mounting right now. Here's a oldie from last year.

    Don´t know where to start first but those ducks are all beautiful and this blue-backed walking rooster is perfect,
    my favourite is the flushing mallard hen, stunning
