    Great work on that one that you "added to". That's really impressive. I also love the form on that one of your cousins. Buddy used to get forms that had all that detail on them; sure makes the mounts look more authentic. Man, hasn't taxidermy come a long way? Good job, Jeremy!

    ya its cool, we call him the illinois freak. i kind of had the ears a bit wide. the mouth i dremeled open on the form and made the teeth from epoxie sculpt. i was just palying around and it turned out neat. you wouldnt believe the people that have seen it for the first time that thier mouths drop. its neck is about the size of a forearm.

    i got an airbrush and many other tools that are needed since then. im gonna go into buisness this coming fall. ive got stuff ordered for a smallmouth i caught this summer so i can get working on fish. that project will be next on here. its scheduled for delivery tomorrow along with a deer form. im hopfully gonna talk the mods into letting me start a new section for taxidermy and mounts where we can share pics of fish deer small game ducks ect. also got a pheasnt that will be started this week.
