    I was just curious what everyone's favorite animal to mount was.....I have to say that my favorites are Whitetail Deer (many forms and poses available!!) and Ringneck pheasants!! Although I love the challenge of life-size, and huge Buffalo are also fun!! ;)

    I look forward to hearing from ya!

    I enjoy doing fish, and probably deer second. I also like to do lifesize mammals (I'm especially happy once they're finished).

    Pronghorn are my favorite. Unique looking animals. We don't have them in Wisconsin so they always look cool and different when all we are used to are whitetails.

    They are a lot of work, but I enjoy doing lifesize exotics. I also like the end results of mounting ducks. If you ask me while I'm doing one I have a different opinion, but once it's done I remember why I started in the first place.

    It's got to be a pronghorn. Then a nice big mule deer.

    Brydawg Waterfowlin's not just a hobby, it's an obsession.

    I'd have to say Ducks are my absolute favorite to mount, but I enjoy all of it.
