    GREAT WORK All ! Some really great work posted up here ...
    Done with birds for a while but I'm still tuning up a few before they're ready to go ... Lots of dead mounts this season ...

    Personally I like dead mounts , don't mind mounting them and over the yrs I've done quite a few .... That said 99% of the dead mounts I work on are because the client sees one in my shop and says hey ..that's cool think I'll go with that .... NOW standing birds ..... no thanks .... I'm sure we all have certain mounts we don't care to work on .... For myself its defiantly standing birds , been quite a few yrs since I've had to mount one thank goodness ...

    Looks like he survived 7 years being frozen in a block of ice after I skinned and wheeled him. :)
    I washed, dried and did some initial grooming yesterday afternoon and put him back into the freezer for mounting today. Just pulled him out. Looks like I have a little more grooming to do before I mount him up. He should turn out fine. You all have a great day!
