    Finally finished drying, setting and mounted to it's backwall. This is my second project I've done myself so please point out things you don't like about it and things you do! [​IMG]

    Thanks

    I love it! Taxidermy is fascinating, though I must admit that I know nothing about it.

    What I like best is that you picked a natural pose. I can't stand when you see animals in poses that they would NEVER do in real life. Good job!

    Quote:Thanks so much! I do love the natural way, if I didn't want that I wouldn't of hauled this peice from a mile back through thorns and stuff LOL

    Found a pic of the phesant I did back last year.It has its flaws and it's good points like the background [​IMG] . Personally I like the squirrel ALOT better lol... The pheasant still got me Grand Champion while I was in 4-H. Got alot of weird looks but also interesting ones [​IMG]
