Hit enter too early.

A friends dad's new piece he just got back. These are all birds from 1 hunt late last year. Truly an incredible mount.

ChadJones4Heisman asked me to put up one of his mounts. BEAUTIFUL double sprig pintail killed in Welsh.

I guess its a matter of opinion. It was a cool idea in theory, but its just too much. He could have taken a picture and saved about $1500.

The man literally has every type of bird you can legally shoot and mount plus dozens and dozens of other big game animals. The point of the mount is that it was ONE hunt. Literally took every bird to the taxidermist (who does work for the Smithsonian) and told him to make it happen.

I like the mass mount in theory. Although, it doesn't show off the plumage enough for my tastes.

LOL at the Snow- Would not mount.

The picture makes it tough to really see all the detail. Truly a piece you have to see in person.

I took a closer look and there are quite a variety of birds in there. I didn't notice the Speckled Belly at first.

I never said that the quality of the taxidermy work was bad. I just think its a matter of taste. You can gift wrap a pile of shite with the nicest wrapping paper ever, but its still a pile of shite.

I want to say chadjones4heisman took something to get mounted for himself, could be wrong though. I brought a speck from that hunt to get mounted but completely forgot to send in the deposit

I'm pretty sure his pintail I showed was the one from that hunt, but i'm not positive.

20 oz diet coke added for size ref.



My first buck. Processed all the meat and did the euro mount myself.

Another view with my button mount from last year.
