Well folks this is Mark’s Kudu. I apologize for the shadowing. Still trying to figure out the lighting in the new photo booth.

He’s a stud for sure. I haven’t measured him but I think Mark told me he went 58”. I believe it, you could drop a softball through his curls.

Great work Erik!
Thank you Royal, I’m going to re-photo it in the next couple of days and add some more light to get rid of the heavy shadowing in the shoulder/neck area. I’ve got 4 lights on it but the horns kept throwing a shadow on the left side of his neck at his shoulder. I really need an external flash I can move around. Who’d a thunk you needed to be a photographer to be a taxidermist. I’m super happy with the new photo booth though. You’ll have to come see it one day.

Thank you sir, I will certainly do that. It’s as well as the wildebeest I finish’s out with a suede for the cut out. 99% of the time the capes are too short to wrap around and for what it’s worth, with few exceptions, I don’t like the look of the hide wrapped around. It depends greatly on the form, there are some that look fantastic that way but most don’t and to me give a feel that it was just wrapped around and stapled off to be done with it.

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.

Thanks, Oliver

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
