Real Life Taxidermy

Postby Nathan112244 » April 6th, 2018, 11:29 pm

Just wanted to see if or what kind of taxidermy you hunters have in your house or have pictures of.
I am currently working/ learning taxidermy which id consider the best in Ontario, too bad he owns a small shop and its not bigger.
To start stuff off this is a pic of a wolf we worked on.
This is now sold, and we made a base for it but dont have a picture

Very nice job on that wolf!

I have never been into getting my animals taxidermied. Early in my life I couldnt afford it & later the Sgt Major aka "she who must be obeyed" wont have them in "her" house. I had my 1st elk a 5 pointer & my 1st bear a small cinnamon done before I got married. They occupy a corner of my attic now.

Thanks :D Right now for wolves, there is a small red coloured wolf (55lbs) and a huge Black coloured wolf (200+lbs) that have to get done, both in that position.
And since deer season is over we only have 3-4 whitetail mounts left to finish. But bear and turkey season is right around the corner so we will have a ton of bear and turkey to do, along with a few moose and tons of other ducks, hawks and fish.
