    20190309_220305.jpg 20190301_072610.jpg Great work ..... so many of you are great Taxidermists on this forum that I haven't felt mine are worthy of posting but I've decided to go ahead and post a few
    . I was unable to do any taxidermy work for about 3 yrs in part due to having Carpal Tunnel surgery on both hands and then moving .
    Now that we're somewhat settled , this yr I've finally been able to set up my shop and start mounting birds again . After 3 yrs of not doing any kind of taxidermy , its amazing how much of the little things I forgot , but with each problem I'm remembering what I need to do to fix it ... One thing I didn't bring with me when I moved was my tumbler and what a mistake that was , that alone would solve a few of my problems .... Getting better with each bird but still not were I wanna be .... So here's a few I've been working on , not great , but not horrible ...not completely finished ....

    Nice bird Brooke! Any chance you will post a photo of the front of the bird also? I am mounting on similar (but on driftwood to hang on the wall).

    I'll take a pic today. It's going on the wall on driftwood. It's just on a mounting stand in the pic. I leave them on the stands until dry then move them to driftwood. In fact I'm mounting 5 pintails this week....all basically the same pose.

    Thanks everyone for the compliments.

    I'd pay a lot of money to live in an area where you can shoot birds of that quality much less to be able to mount some . . . Beautiful Pinney Brooke
