I mounted these for a local guy and before he picks them up I thought I would snap a couple pix. Wild roosters shot and retrieved by what I assume was an energetic and hard mouthed retriever. Customer asked to have them fighting and wanted them to sit atop his gun safe-the rest was up to me

Tough to mount birds after they have been plucked.
I hope the customer is happy with his new art.

WOW, beautiful work. I have a pair of fighting pheasant that my Lab Savannah retrieved, and ironically they also sit on top of my safe :). The birds I have were her second & third bird retrieved. She had the most gentle mouth, and was a fantastic hunter. Man I miss her, she was a great dog & companion. My apologies, didn't mean to derail your post.

Here is a picture of Savannah with one of the birds. If you zoom in, you can see how good the birds looks. When I get home, I'll take a picture the mount and posted. Thank you!

I really like this mount, @Firebird , great action, this is more like what I'd want in a pheasant mount. Too many I've seen are nice but boring standard poses. Thanks for sharing your work!

I have a like new VC .450 I might part with. I had it built in 2013 and it has served me well. Also have a VC fitted leather trunk case for it along with the plastic case it came with. I'll take 14000 for all of it.

Hi Jody,
I have been looking for ideas on the best way to display my European mounts from Africa. I came across some of your shield work and was wondering if you would be willing to make one for me? If so, please let me know the cost. I like the shield with the two spears that you built for a member years ago. Thanks.
