    I just finished this big fella up today. A few days of drying and he'll be ready to head home with his owner. It was a ton of work but wow what a lot of fun! IMG_3427.JPG IMG_3429.JPG IMG_3432.JPG IMG_3433.JPG IMG_3434.JPG

    That is very nice Gizmo!
    Reminds me of my daughter's first car, an old Jeep Wagoneer. She found a set of longhorn mounted horns in a junk store and had me mount them in front. Hilarious in Boulder, CO...the people's republic of hunter haters!

    My friend.....You continue to impress with your taxidermy skills. You certainly are doing very well. I can just imagine in the future what your work will look like as you hone your skills. Keep up the good work! You and I will be hunting together in the near future.
