    George The older I get, the better I was.

    wa, I actually never looked at who initiated the post but as soon as the first cat popped up, there was no need for me to look. When it comes to old rufus, your mounts stand alone. Absolutely gorgeous work.

    Amazing work wildlife artist!!! I really hate this being your last post! You are definitely an inspiration for all small animal taxidermist. I've always had positive feedback from my customers on all my small mammal work, but when I see the pics of your work, it encourages me to dig a little deeper. I wish you the best of luck and fortune in whatever and wherever your career takes you. Although your pics will be missed, thanks for years of inspiration

    Trapper2016 Thanks for this awesome forum!

    Hope everybody is having a good week,

    Recently finished up a white mark fox that had been in the freezer for a long time. This was my first time trying a brian hendricks head and they are pretty nice to work with. I also finally mounted up a spotted skunk i have had in the freezer for some time. I have a little work left to do on the back of his tail but for the most part he is done.

    Have a great summer

    Trapper2016 Thanks for this awesome forum!

    It can't even compare to the cats that guys like WA do, but tried my hand at my first lifesize bobcat as a personal project. I still have some more adjustments to make on him but will finish that up tomorrow and then let him dry. For our area this little female had really nice spots.
    Hope everyone has a great week

    Finished this one up today. A very simple, basic base, but its all the customer wanted. He’s happy and I’m happy! 2 more bobcats, 2 yotes and a black bear and I’m done with last season’s life size mounts!

  17. Your mounts are amazing Wildlife artist. I will definitely miss seeing your work. You have been such a huge inspiration to me, with your Bobcat mounts. I don't want to sound weird but my phone is full of your Bobcat work. I just sit and stare at them trying to figure out what you do to get that life like look and try to better myself. You do phenomenal work thank you for the huge inspiration you have given me.
