If they're dumb enough to be lured in by plastic you're really just doing them a favor.

Know your target before you pull the trigger.

Me and alot of other taxidermists would like to see you publish a reference style book of divers and seaducks in flight. If you have seen the book "Praire Wings", something along those lines. There is nothing on the market close to what I am refering to. I end up butchering my DU and Wildfowl magazines each month to help compile my reference library, and that leaves alot to be desired. Give it some thought, it would be greatly appreciated.

thanks guys!



yellowdog... i do have one refernece CD out, kind of a first try showing a sample of my duck photos. all are sitting on the water, none flying.

examples:

this disc is $20.00 for 98 images i believe all that will print out a nice 4x6 300 dpi photo, but again none flying.
my hope was to do single species CD and have alittle of everything including flying. i do not have close ups of feet and bills, this is one my list to get this coming season.

thoughts?

Seems like I saw the lab and oldsquaws in a catalog just recently. Always admire a master's works and will add my vote for a coffee table book someday!
