Spent some teaching time with a Ohio taxidermists that wanted to improve his skill level and produce a action mount for his studio, He had never done any african work before and purchased a lion and Zebra from me along with his training.
Small area to work in but this is what we came up with.

Now drying and will finish base and airbrush detials soon.

I can feel the anguish in the zebra and I can feel the hunger in the cat, oustanding art.

That is great! As others have said, it feels alive. It's like you are watching Nat geo or discovery! Amazing job so far.

Details are in those pins.

Dennis you must be creative to be hidden in that bell tower work room.

Thank for sharing your artistry. That is an apt description for sure.

Hi Bob, how's things going in Wyong?. Down your way a couple of years back but haven't been in NSW since Ebor for the fishing. just getting over some nasty storms up here in Qld, seeing the sun for the first time in a few days. I'm going to NZ in the spring and hope to clean up a few buns while there and perhaps shake the spiders out of my old .303LE (currently owned by my BIL). Cheers Brian

Heard you may have load data for the 500 Jeffery,.....any info would be appreciated. Was thinking 535gr, but already had a response that the 570gr would be a better way to go, not sure why.
