Holy cow MoFo, those are GREAT!!! I don't take the fish course until April...you're gonna have to give me some lessons before then. the guys at school like to give me a hard time and since I've never hunted and only fished a few times, I'm sure they have a bunch of tricks for me when I get back. It would be great to go back and actually have a head start.
1 Packrat 14 Coons 13 Grinners 2 Gray Fox 1 Coyote (mangy) 1 Stinker 4 fingers and a thumb (you'll pay for that Mrs. Jones!)

I kinda liked doing the fish, seemed like they was easier to do intill when it came to painting them. I did those mounts back in the mid 90's. I can't take credit for the habitat tho. When I lived out Colorado all my mounts stayed at my mom and dads place in IL. My dad made the habitat for that.
My brother has a 10# bass he caught in Texas. I mounted it and then threw my arms up at painting it. I waited awhile for it to dry and then rattle canned it white and came down its back with olive. Looked ok for a few years. 15 years later in hangs in the gazebo by the lake. Just a shape. Painting a fish is an art. Alot of taxis just make a plaster cast and then spend forever with many layers of paint getting it right. Not my balliwick. Hey MOFO-Why dont you makea video of them fish?
mofo im a taxidermist also they look good other then the eyes are out a bit to far,and for useing a dry tan,there holding together nice,crappie are tuff to mount and paint imo,would rather do 20 gar lol
