Thank you both as well!
Fleshed most of the scoter the other day, injected, dried, and painted the feet. Once my fine wire wheel comes in on Friday, I should be able to flesh the rest of it and get it mounted up within a week or so (depending on work, crow hunting, and the wife).
Only put two holes in the back of the scoter so far, which is an improvement to the 10-15 I did for the buffie on the wire wheel. Hopefully the fine wires are easier to work with. The coarse wheel (only one in stock at 3 places I went that fit my set up) was probably not the best choice to learn the fleshing wheel on.
I got some other birds in the freezer, including a grouse from last year that I have to skin and freeze in water for the future before they get burned. Going to be a busy weekend!
Anyways... Pics soon!
