My gosh, you do nice work! My favorite is the gray fox - absolutey gorgeous. Just the other day I almost picked up a road killed raccoon - decided against it but wish I hadn't. I bet you watch Brian Hendricks on you tube - if not, look him up! I am watching his 42 video series on bobcat skinning and prep as well as his red fox mounting and finish work videos in prep for doing a bobcat. And yes, I have a permit for that too although it again is only a state DNR issued permit. Is there a federal one I need for that before I begin? After I finish the whitetail shoulder for a friend, I am going to start the cat with Brian as my guide. Also have several fish waiting in the freezer to practice on. So fun, only wish it hadn't taken me so long to start. Thanks for sharing your work with me. I hope you don't find it inappropriate but what state are you in? Ok if you don't want to say - looks like mtns/hills though judging by the background in your pics. And the species you like (Vulpes vulpes) could be anywhere in the northern 1/2. Good work and thanks for replying.
