    Not really a "cool" mount. It looks down right cold! That is really well done.

    Cool mount.

    I just did an aoudad and blackbuck that were shot after that cold snap that TX had last winter. The animals were stressed out and loosing hair the instant they hit the ground. I know they taken care off, because my boss took care of them for the guy he flew down to TX with.

    The ranch said the animals were so stressed, that it wasn't worth the effort for the meat. My boss did skin out his blackbuck, and gave me some. I cooked up a backstrap and threw it away. It was nasty. I've had blackbuck before, but this was bad.

    Very "cool" quite literally. Just shows what a little imagination can do in the shop. No one says you have to produce cookie cutter mounts right out of the catalog. Very well done. ... going to be a bitch to dust that off though ..

    I use envirotect light, if you whip it it will get airy and frothy, the key is to wait for it to get close to kicking off before you apply it .

    Do you whip it with a stirring stick or a egg beater. Then how do you apply it?
