Thanks! haha yeah, it is an odd one to have, but they are cool little animals. Plus, practice for future small mammals/furbearers. I'd eventually like to do this as a side business so I aim to practice on what I can. Thanks on the base. I through it together last minute at night, so I'm happy it came out somewhat decent
That woody does look very alive. It came out awesome, and I love the idea of her coming out of that knot with a drake nearby. reminds me of the ever-popular hen in the duck house, drake on the roof mount. I like it a lot.
Thank you! Yes, it is similar and I saw examples of both. This one was smaller, so easier to convince my wife to let me hang in the living room
I was hunting with my dad a few years ago and he shot a massive drake woodie, he said he'd like to save it for a mount, so a little while later, we had a hen come in. Knowing my dad was getting the drake done, I thought how cool it would be to have a pair from the same hunt so I folded the hen.
when it came back it was one of the worst mounts I've ever seen, the drake is so big, and the guy really butchered the hen so it looks like its the size of a small robin. The neck is thinner then a pencil Not sure whatever even happened to that thing.
Ah, thats too bad. I am sure it would have looked great. I would hate for someone to feel that way about one I did, so I plan on practicing as much as I can before I even do them for friends, nevermind new clients, etc.
