Thanks. From what I keep hearing very few younger guys have any interest in taxidermy anymore. Most of the older pros I have talked to seem pretty happy a 30yr old has taken interest.

Looks like he's staring at a pair of oncoming headlights.

T-Rev The coyote is not bad for your third mount being self taught. The eyes can still be adjusted take some wet cotton balls and rehydrate the eye lids. This will take a day or two , get yourself a good picture of a LIVE coyote in a similar position and when eye lids are rehydrated position them as you see the eyes in the picture. Top lid should be just a hair above the pupil. The ears , next time the inner points that are sticking up on your mount should be on the the skull. next one you skin pay attention to how they are attached to the skull. I hope this was kind of helpful for you , good luck and keep at it .

Must be an awfully skinny coyote to be hidden behind that small post.

You must have no imagination whatsoever. Do you look at every shoulder mount that even professionals have done whether it be deer, boar, bear etc. and say where is the rest of it? Why is that base there in front of it looking out of place. Obviously its not a good mount so I hoped the base would help it out some.

Don't pay any attention to the ignorant comments on here . They are just trying to ruffle your feathers.

Well, honestly if I had paid a lot of money for it I wouldn't be too happy with it. If I had got it done free or cheap I would learn to love it. smile




Actually I did pay a lot of money for a red fox that was about on that same level or worse.

I charged him $150 and a hunt for a nice buck on his property next season. After paying for materials and shipping I wound up making $50 profit. It didnít bother me though it was for a friend. I was glad he got his first coyote and happy he let me do the work on it. I told him donít expect professional results. Even with all the flaws he was happy with it. Thats what counts.

Third stuff-job? Not bad, not bad at all. I won't even scare you with photos of some of my first stabs at taxidermy! As stated above....practice, practice, as well as reference, reference, reference! If you shop around and get a catalog from as many suppliers as you can, you will see the great quality differences in many of the small/medium game forms. Deer are king in the taxidermy industry, so that is where 90% of the sculpting improvements are. I had an old friend in the industry that was a real wiz at sculpting and posing small and medium game forms. This person won all manner of awards at the various national shows. As a result, this person went on to market the many forms through several supply companies. The sculpter was a teacher a their "real" job, and once told me that the yearly royalties from those manikins was more than the yearly teachers retirement. That is what a good sculpter can expect if they produce top quality manikins.

You need to move it away from the front of the house.
I for one, would be tempted to shoot it while driving by to keep it from getting to the children.
