    It's been a long time since I've posted on here, didn't even know about the changes until just now.

    Some years ago there was a taxidermist that sold a small rubber nose pad for deer, apply a thin layer of epoxy and press the mold on to the nose to get the nose detail, great tool for the nose. Does anybody know who sold this piece, I can't seem to find it on here. I remember it was about $20 bucks or so.

    I think Larry Jones or his son Ben has the pad. Not sure what he goes by on t.net, but he's out of Franklin Tn. and Ben is out of College Grove Tn.

    I've used the Dan d nose roller, don't like the look it gives.

    Looking for the other two mentioned with no luck.

    Most taxidermy suppliers sell the Dan-D-Noser. I have one but quit using it on nose pads ages ago. Stipple the nose pad with Mod-Podge, and you'll have much more realistic results.

    Thanks for the input, I do stipple the nose with mod-podge on most deer but this deer is a breast and will most likely take state here in VA. I want the mold cause it gives a very natural look. I found it on replica racks web site, $30.

    Thanks Again
