      Hello Edward, and thanks for the kind comments on my taxidermy work, the scimitar-horned oryx was taken on the northmillranch, texas.

      Yes, Edward. If I wrote it, that's what I said, and that's what I use. Lightly spray onto clean, white towel, and go over the mount with the direction of the hair/fur.

      Hi Edward,

      Thanks for that.
      Sorry I didn't see your friendly comment sooner.
      But, I had not looked into my photos very much lately.
      I looked up your profile and learned that you and your wife are handgun hunters.
      Unfortunately I cannot claim the same status for myself.
      However, I can understand why you find it appealing / more challenging than hunting with a rifle.

      Cheers,
      Velo Dog

      You did a fine job on the buffalo Edward.. I would be interested to know the ballistics on your 45-70. I was shooting a 385 gr. solid brass bullet at 1840 fps. in the 500. I was 66 at the time.

        doubledave,the ammo was factory from cor-bon.it is a hot load.with the thin grips on the contender it is the most felt recoil i have. ive since put the pachmyer grips on but havent shot it yet.my wife and i are handgun hunters only.do to s.a.express air lines refusing to transport handguns on our last hunt in 2014 i had to use my double rifle.i missed my handguns.things are changing.
