Always wanted a mount of a doe eating an apple with the juice dripping out the sides of her mouth. Now there's a challenge for you Curt!  :notworthy:

I think I could do it    :thumbsup:

Sorry for the delay..

Now I go over the entire mount to make sure everything is how I want it.I will do this for the next couple days thru the drying process.Some pics just after the mounting process was complete.....

 

 

 


I'll take pix as I do the finish work this weekend and post as I go.

Even without the finish work completed, this mount looks better than more than half of what a lot of folks are selling.  Not only is this a great thread, but it also serves the purpose of educating hunters in terms of what to look for when deciding whether or not to leave their hard-earned trophy with a Taxidermist.  I've always felt that it is better to pay more $ for someone with Curt's expertise than to pay less and get less in return!  Great job, Curt!

WOW, I have a messy shop!!     :eek:    :knothead: ...I'll have to work on that...


Chuck,you got it bud,just let me know..

Steve,Joe,Charlie....thanks


Claudia, Thanks girl,that was the reason for doing this,to try to educate some on what to look for.


Ya really have to ask some questions and look close at what they have on display.Remember,you are going to look at your mount for the rest of your life.Waiting a little longer,or paying a little more is worth it in the long run.If you don't like what you see,go elsewhere.Keep looking till you find the right person for the job!!

Curt,

I used to think, "Huh.  I could do my own head mount."  I will never think that again.  Wow.  What an incredible amount of artistic skill you have to possess in order to complete such a masterpiece.  

Thanks for sharing that step by step instruction.  I will never complain about the price of taxidermy again.

Dean and Terry...thank you

I'm gonna try to get it finished this weekend and you'll really see it come alive!! I'll get some good pix outside in natural light.

I also have a deer I mounted for myself 7 yrs ago that i never finished.I'll finish it with this one and take pix.I killed it with a longbow the last day of our bow season in '93(i think it was '93).Hair is very different.I'll get some comparison pix......

Awesome work bro. My taxedermist decided he is not going to take any more heads. You need to move to Ohio, or at least come once a year for a hunting trip!  :bigsmyl:

Curt, I hope you don't mind some new business coming your way from NH, cause you got me hooked for sure.  I figure I benefit a couple of ways from this, one I get a great looking trophy, two, it gives me an excuse to come to NY and visit!

Great work my friend.
