    Not a mount yet but thought some might like to see this.This is a locally caught wolverine,a big male.It has 2 white front feet,1 white fore leg and a big white "V" on his chest that extends all the way down his belly.[​IMG]

    I'll do that,Todd.I'm sure the customer liked that one.That's a pretty wolverine.The moose antler is a nice touch too.They are really fun to mount.

    thanks for the compliments. I was going to enter it in the Idaho show but backed out. I should have entered and used the constructive crirtcism. Next year I guess. I'll have another year of practice under my belt. thanks again

    George The older I get, the better I was.

    I wanted to break some hearts with a picture. I'll keep trying but AOL keeps crapping out on me. Ken Walker has a 50 pound pure albino wolverine with red eyes he mounted. It won the WASCO Award in Birtish Columbia and should be in the next Breakthrough. He named the piece " A Boy Named Sue" (Google the title if you don't know the words of Johnny Cash's song) for obvious reasons. I'll try again in a few minutes.

    OH, I tried again and I see this file is maxed out on pictures. Oh well, it'll be in Breakthough looking much better than it did in the dead animal picture.

    I once mounted a snow white cougar.It was a very large tom but it had normal eyes.We just called him 'Ol Blue'. Maybe someday I will post a photo.

    Ken says it's fixed. Now let's try again.

    Wow.That's incredible.I've never seen anything like it.I've seen a few with the extra white like the photo I posted,but never one like that.I can't wait to see the mount.Thanks for that one George.I've seen Catman's all white mountain lion and it was awesome too.I'm hoping we can talk him into posting a picture.I think a lot of people would like to see it.Again,I've never seen one like it.
