    I currently don't have anything to share. Unless you're interested in seeing some of our custom gun holsters. Lol.

    This is my 6th waterfowling season, and it was only last season that I made a decision to try my hand at mounting my own bird(s). I stashed 9 birds in my freezer, that I feel are good candidates, and have been slowly accumulating tools, studying photos, and following along in various bird taxidermy groups.

    Thank you for the welcome, and I hope to share my first attempt soon.

    I wonder if that dog will chew my birds so that they too will turn out that nice?

    Nice lesser Josh.
    Umbrella looks very good wildthings. Not an easy bird to pull off.
    Overall some nice work these days.

    Thanks guys. His feet were pulled, injected and painted ahead of time along with casting an artificial head. The feathers were the hardest to dry and zip back up that I've ever dealt with
