Beautiful day outside today...so I heard, I didn't see it or feel it...Been feeling a burnout coming on so I had to do a mount for myself and the shop. Best way I can keep the burnout from slowing me down...To my taxidermy friends...you'll know what these measurements mean...HUGE !
Eye to nose 6 1/2
Nose to back of skull 18"
Neck 50"+ dependnig on if your choose at the atlas or down further
Shoulders 92"
Made the form from a change out Polar Bear Head and Neck . I used the face from the eyes forward off med Grizzly Bear Change out Head and I found some old shoulders from a Pedestal Zebra form and even had to make them larger.
No Snap-On taxidermy done here.....real nose and just a regular Mohr Jawset.

First time I seen skinners in an African camp using scalpels and not pocket knives for cape work.

Marlon Beyer Taxidermy in Namibia did the D&P. (Pronto was shipping, Matt Mayers /Genus Logistics did import at JFK); very happy with services provided by all.

Mule deer and Colorado elk seasons almost done! Hunters driving farm roads, looking for racks, their PH driving them along, I ask that you not pull into my drive. The buck behind me, on the boundary line of the GMU somehow knows. The hunter laughs, I would invite you in to see my Searcy rifles but social distancing prevails, darkness arrives and the buck slides away into secret tree grove...

Ellwood Epps has 1 box of 25-20 in stock. Look them up on the web. They are located in Orilla Ontario.

Many thanks for re formatting my article for the forum

I served my time in both the bush and during the bush war

I hope it did it justice

Education is where it is at - without it the wild places are history

You - sir - are well placed to make a difference
