    Here is the 2nd deer that I have mounted. I know he is not perfect but I'm proud of him. Just thought I would share it with you all. Thanks for your thoughts.

    Doesn't look like one you should feel guilty over shooting. LOL

    I'm not a deer hunter, but if that little six point behind the house keeps rubbing all the bark off my new pecan trees, he'll never make it to an 8 point... He's been a pecker head since he was a couple weeks old.

    Thanks. I have been wanting to get into taxidermy for a long time. A couple of months ago I messed up my knee and cannot work for a while. So I thought man what a better time than now. I wanting to get into ducks later down the road. I just thought deer would be easiest to start with.

    Don't know much about it but it doesn't look bad at all to me!

    DWB5, I have been dabbling in taxidermy a bit myself, I've done a one life-size bear, a few deer heads, and an antelope, and several birds. As you know its a lot of work, and when you get something that turns out as nice as your deer, its very rewarding hobby. Good job!!:clap

    Thank you for the compliment. It is a lot work as far as detail work. Its like when you figure one thing out, you find something else to work on. I would love to see some of your work as well.

    I just finish my 3rd one the other day. I think I have improved so. But there is still so much to learn. Thanks again for the comments. 2017102895164439.jpg 1031171644.jpg 1031171648a.jpg 1031171648.jpg
