    Would like to see pictures of your first whitetail mount especially if you learned watching DVD's like Rick Carter A-Z or Bill Atkins taxidermy 101. I have these DVD's and will mount my first buck this year. Since being on this forum I've learned to appreciate great work and enjoy seeing first mounts. So if you can share pictures and feedback of what you learned from these videos during the mounting process I'd appreciate it.

    This is my first try, it still needs to be painted in the pics.

    Sorry I’ll try to find a pic but it was 34 years ago so I’m not promising anything.

    Wish I had a pic of my first one just to see how bad it really was couse I learned it the hard way with one of Ariche Phillips books 30 years ago

    Not saying anything was wrong with Ariches books it was just the times and not many people would tell you much back then but I still managed to learn it

    My brother still has that joker on his wall even though I've begged him to let me remount it about 500 times. I'll say though it still looks as good as it did 33 years ago.o_O

    A bit of a hot mess, but I was honestly expecting him to be way, way worse. [​IMG]
