    I just finished this otter that I had in the freezer for over a year. I learned a great deal from advice and comments here on the forum that helped me with this project which I really enjoyed doing. This one goes into my own personal trophy room. Thanks all!

    I like the wet look on that otter... Very neat looking, like he just slide up out of the water :)
    That Puma is just awesome.

    The "wet look" was a first attempt for me. I picked up the tip on how to do it here on the forum, but don't remember from who. It was hair gel and it really does look like he just walked out of the water. Its amazing what you can learn here and I for one am very appreciative of the help.

    In Canada the red ribbon is a first place and in the US as you all know it would be blue. We have to be different.

    Alan,
    Like your bobcat, soft looking.
    Habitat is pretty sharp as well. Show us the completed pic with "bird in hand".

    Thanks It was the only form Van Dykes has. I did allot of altering on it as for position but it was the closest to the size I could find
     
  16. Well my picture isn't great but here is my fisher. I think I bought this thing when I started taxidermy and finally got around to mounting it this year. The best part is that is is on MY wall.... ;D

    I haven't done a piece for ME in at least 2 years. It feels good to treat yourself once in a while! LOL

    To everyone who has posted thank you for sharing such fantastic work!

    Sandy, the fisher is awesome. I was fortunate enough to see it at the GSTA show and the pictures do not do it justice. Great job.

    I like the Fisher as well. Wish I could have seen it in person. Pictures rarely do justice, but that 1st place ribbon in the Professional Division sure does a good job of telling how good of a mount it is! ;D
     
  19. Great looking fisher you got there. Josh
