    Thank You! Yeah, it is tough, but I just took my time. And thank you for the complement. I saw your mount too, great job!
     
  2. Thanks for the complement, I wish I had a picture of one I finished last year, The ears were both slashed really bad. But they weren't slashed as long as yours is. I still can't believe how good yours looks! That cut looks to be atleast 2 inches long. I also wanted to know if you used the bondo method? That is the one I use for messed up ears.

    I commend you for NOT fixing that ear! We do them the same way. We use liners for ours. Just cut them to fit. If the don't match up perfect. We use critter clay in them at the edges of the liners. You can smooth them in nice and the don't crack and move later

    Simms, I used an earliner. I slid it into the ear, traced the cutout and refit, until I got what I wanted. I probably did the fit an trim 3 or 4 times until I liked what I saw. It was scabbed really bad, so the back didn't match up like I was hoping, but I took some apoxie sculpt, and smoothed it out. then I ruffed the edges by not making it smooth there. I painted the edges darker to give the appearance of scabbing as well.

    Thank you! I love the character they offer when they're like that. It takes some extra time, but I think it pays off in the end.

    It's about average for around here..lots of 170's and 180's every fall
     
  13. Oh, I didn't know that, up here around springfield they range from 140-150, with a rare 160-180. (From my experience)
     
  14. Here is a bear I did when I was 12. Not bad, but when I look at it now it looks pretty bad.
