I will try to get some pics tomorrow. yours looks good!
I don't know if any of you will see much of a difference. The first pic is before the redo. Thank you very much for all of you help on it Byrdman.
Keep working at it Micah. Taxidermy takes lots of practice. You will get there.
Back to mounting some birds in between deer rolling in, this is still the bird section correct?
yes its the bird section... doubt that bibby would fly... ha
My very first Canada goose I've been working on for the last couple days and I finally finished it today
Yeah, I get that but that is what he insisted upon. He said it flew into the field he was hunting with a flock of mallards. Hell until I posted a picture here I wasn't even sure what it was.
That's how I got mine, ot was a group of 4 of them that flew over while out in a field goose hunting.
Another dead mount bird for a large project
A Thursday I won't get back but it isn't looking too bad, just a crapton of work. Plenty of grooming to do tomorrow.
I meant Tuesday dang it. I work too much, I can't even remember what day it is.
3bears, do you have a source for peacocks?
The mount looks great!!
Nice work Shawn!
Nope this is for a customer and thanks
Had a couple rain days.
Hope everyone is having a great holiday.
I finished up a few recently. I am trying to get better on birds but still nowhere near where I want to be. I messed up alot on these 2. Wood Ducks are still really difficult for me to get the pockets and sidebars to line up. I am hoping to use him on top of a wood duck box looking down at a female. The brant was generously gifted to me and i thought i had him looking pretty good until I took a photo last night and noticed the wings are too far back. I don't know how i didn't see that when i was mounting him but oh well. These are personal birds so thankfully I am not screwing up anyone elses work while im trying to get better.
Have a great Christmas everybody
Chris, those look pretty good, as long as you learned something from them the that is good. Here's a couple things I've learned over the years. On standing birds, if you have the wings on them where they belong and tucked into the body instead of on top of it then the pocket feathers have more flexibility. On flying birds if I get the flight web pinned where it belongs, it then becomes harder to set the wings too far back. If you haven't watched Shane Smith's videos on MK's site I highly recommend it. You can incorporate his techniques with whomever's forms you use. I feel my birds have not only gotten better but I have become much faster at them with less frustration.
