    Those 64U's are a nice form. I always like the looks of them when done.

    In 37 years I have never seen, eyes being to different sizes on a animal of any kind , when there is no damage at all . Hard to tell by pics but very noticeable live E47273FA-E25B-4FE4-803B-2EE77C534F5E.jpeg DA3AE9B1-6D39-4535-A619-7EC2F3A2271B.jpeg 2DDE123D-9697-4AE5-8E20-7E4B7DF93B78.jpeg CB311C86-BC78-41A9-95C4-2A2BF5EFA2D8.jpeg 02716697-16E8-4497-B652-619B36610DE8.jpeg

    Museum man, look forward to seeing that dog mounted. Nice coyote back there too...

    13point, those deer seem a popular mount for you. Just noticing the fullness you model into the eye on this fresh mount.

    Great stuff.

    Thanks I do a lot of Japanese Sika as we have a wild herd here in Md . Your exactly correct, I just mounted him 15 mins before I posted pics . I believe I even told you to start eyes out on the heavy side , with in the next few days I’ll be shaping it as it drys it will get a thinner look .

    It's nice to see an in process example.

    I didn't realize you were in MD. Now the Marsh grass habitats all make sense.
    I've been to Ocean city, competing at the World championships(bird carving) several times and have seen the sitkas (and scrawny ponies) on Asseteage Island.
    If we're ever back down that way, I'll have to look you up!

    I use paper towels, as it can be pushed in tight , it will expand some and the best part it comes out easy and if it get glued in by chance , you wet it with a little safety solvent and it just rolls off and out. I’ve probably used it all , and I keep coming back to paper towels. Let me add this I’ve found that by using paper towels the nostrils dry fast as it allows that skin and glue to breath , by using plastic wrap it is no different then like putting that cape in a trash bag kinda thing no air gets to it .

    Right, it's Sika, not Sitka.
    Guessing Blacktails are few and far between on the eastern shore.

    The waiting game begins, anyone that says mounting big bastards like this in small quarters is easy is lying. PXL_20220527_153755009.jpg
