    I guess I kinda do since I've been a taxidermist for 15 yrs. lol. But I've only mounted about 4-5 of my own. Never seem to have the time.

    That is totally cool. How did you learn the trade? Is it your off season business? Just curious. I think it is a really cool thing and takes a lot of talent to do it right.

    I actually bought some videos yrs ago. Then a lot of practice from there. Believe it or not photography kinda got me into it. As I chased deer with a camera I look back at the pics Id taken and realized a lot of my bucks on the wall didn't look even close to what I had photographed. So it kinda went from there. I have a full time job so I do it in my spare time. I tan everything as well.

    very Nice there Mike
    I have said it many times
    MOST folks don't know the difference between a GOOD mount and a so so one
    most guys come to find out the difference ONLY when they put what they thought was a GOOD one, next to a actual good one!!
    and its also why there are so many taxidermist that do so so work and stay in business!
    a GOOD taxidermist is NOT easy to find, all the more so one that ALWAYS does good work
    as many do a good one, then get busy and get sloppy!
    and then you never know what your getting back!!

    after my guy stopped, I still haven't fond a good one up my way, they all have a mix of NICE one and crappy mounts in there showrooms?? gave a few a try over the yrs, and got burned a few times doing so!
