    Going to mount a coyote soon, I want to see what other options I have for head forms just incase there is a better on out there. Anyone have any good recommendations?
    Thanks, have a great day/night.

    Your measurements from your coyote is your best reference to accomplish the best head out there.
    Measure and transfer that to any head and you’ll end up with a perfect fit.
    So in reality there is no perfect head out there, we adjust it to fit our needed. I cast my own noses cause like you there’s nothing good. I shave down the sides of the mouth cause it’s always to wide. Drill out the eyes cause the eye sets are wrong. It’s all in understanding references and making it works. The sculptures sculpt what they see and make some alterations so it can be pulled from a mold easy. It’s we as taxidermists that make the subtle changes.
