    Thanks dafin. Heres a photo from back in Jan. A local churches mens fellowship sponsors a "DEER B-QUE" every year and they ask me to give a seminar on fieldcare. Well now another Church is having a "SPORTSMEN'S BANQUET" in Feb and they want me to be there for that as well. I really like doing muscle detail on deer. Cattledogz came by the other day and was amazed at the detail I put into my deerheads. And to top it of...I love my job! That makes it better to.

    OK then heres a question for you. A few years ago I saw a picture someone took of a doe and buck mount. he had it so the buck was "interacting" with the doe. I just got my doe mount (my first archery harvest) back. I had her done in a semi sneak with the head turning right. I'd like to get a buck mounted (still trying to kill it) to have it interact in some with with her. How would you have him mounted?

    Scott - I would have the buck turned left on a 64 D forum. The forum is a awesome "majestic" looking forum. That form could be altered just a little and possibly add a open mouth with him trying to lick the doe. I always love doing specialty work lick that. I love one of kinds. Thanks for the post!

    Hello flathead - Im not gonna lie about it. I HATE mounting birds. I aint NO good at it. I have mounted a few and still am not impressed with what I have done. Im gonna start duck hunting and practice practice practice. Thanks for asking. Also to protect birds - Take a pair of panty hose and slide the bird down the leg. This will keep the feathers laying in correct position. Then just cut them off ,tie a knot in it and place in a bag for freezeing. You can tie a knot in the leg you cut and use it again. I had to buy panty hose for this....Until I killed a turkey and then borrowed a pair from my wife....lmao

    cats4 - When ever I mess with birds I use Coleman fuel - rinse in dawn dishwashing liquid - To dry I use a shop vacumn "reversed" so the tube is blowing air out. I never tumble birds. It mess up the pin feathers and gets the feathers out of wack and you have to just work with it to get it all lined up again.

    I really apreciate all the feedback from everyone. I (im sure Cats4me will to) be glad to answer any questions you all might have.
