I don't know how many of us gals meander over to the taxidermy side of the forum so I thought I'd post here too........
So, I finally had a chance to get some ducks done. learned what a pain gadwalls are on the wheel, and also learned not to flesh at night in the basement.......but here they are and they're not in thier habitats yet, still undecided what I'm going to do with that part of it right now.......and since they're just our ducks, I don't have to hurry!
but if you see anything outside of the blue bill needed to be fleshed a little better me thinks, and concequently he didn't dry as well....and I probably should have groomed him more.....I know the breast of the gadwall could look a little better from the front (had some issues with sewing up what I had MANGLED on the wheel.....but anyway.....here is my goldeneye I finally put on a "habitat" of sorts, it's actually one side of antlers from my husbands first mulley, so kinda cool he shot both. the other is one that he did finally on a habitat. Looking forward to getting some more done now that things have settled down a little.
