Nice Eider mount. I've shot more than my share of those. Did you mount it yourself? I really like the flies you made. Are they representing butterflies? I especially like the Matador. Where are you from? Nothing in your website or profile to give any indication?

:welcome: aboard!

Hi Pete - Thanks - No, I didn't mount it I had a taxi here on Cape Cod do it. I live in Wellfleet MA - lotsa good hunting and fishing here. The flies are classic bass flies form the 19th century - I really enjoy tying and fishing them. Good hunting, Alec

Beautiful work, I'm always curious who does the mounts we see and very rarely do guys give us the artists' name...I will make one suggestion, and that would be to get a glass cover for that mount. Dust attacks the habitat and bird and makes them old and dingy within months, and your mount will be particularly hard to clean-just a suggestion.
There is no help for this kind of insanity. I'm just a duck hunter, and should not be held accountable for all my actions between October 1st and freeze-up. Gordon MacQuarrie

Thanks - I'm pretty good about dusting it (I use a soft large paint brush) and do it regularly - I also have a 6 year old that loves to dust it, so it stays pretty clean. The name of the Taxidermist is Judith Dunham, from Yarmouth MA. She does nice work. I'm gonna have her do a goldeneye down this year. Good hunting, Alec

Great looking mount. I'm glad to see that this "taxidermy" topic exists. Great to see others birds and what they've had done.
Be nice or I'll cath you!
