    Better than the last hooded I did but still not quite 100% pleased with it. Had shot damage to the head that I fought but finally figured out how far forward you really have to pull them and struggled with the hood to bacl of neck transition

    Newby here. Here's a few of my latest. I only have about 2 dozen birds under my belt. Loving the challenge taxidermy brings and the reward at the end of the finishing process!

    Mario, nice turkey. Did you make the base or buy it?
    Brooke, I must not be a "Bird Taxidermist" as I've only ever had that request once in my career to date, and I'm sure yours looks better than mine did, it's been a while.

    3bears / No, I bought this one from Mckenzie, then modified it to my taste. Will have over a 100 hours in this mount by the time its done. Want to use it at the MTA convention next year in Masters Division. Will Post bird again when it is completed.

    Thanks, Looks good, I'll look for it in the catalog. It will fit what I want for 2 of my personal birds.

    Nice turkey! Gives me some inspiration to get working on a Gould"s full strut that I've been procrastinating with.
    P.S. If you had the head done by someone else... who was it?
