    finaly got it done today, feel free to critisize so I can improve..I seen several things but unless I distinctly point them out no one seems to notice. the coon did have a thin spot on its neck so there was nothing I could do on that but am gonna try to brush it in better.

    I really can't see anything wrong with that mount. If theres nothing you can do about that bad spot than there is nothin you can do. Great job anyway.

    looks good ,but if you want to be judged i'll do her for yah:rotfl:the only thing i see that would make it 100 percent better would be finding you a knothole and have poking out of it.but then thats just my taste and it ain't to good.

    I don't see any flaws at all. Ears are usually a problem spot for someone just starting out, but those are nice and smooth. Well done! :dancin:

    Looks like a good job to me---especially for your first!
    And I would follow coyote's suggestion about the knot hole!
    :cheers::cheers:
     
  10. Agree with the knot hole, it would also clean up the neck area.

    Although it would be kinda hard for the ever illusive Jack Coon to get in and out of the knot hole w/ the rack ;)

    Chuck, is someone helping you or are you just working it out for yourself? Looks great to me.

    Good job, I wouldn't have known it was your first mount if you hadn't told us. Well done. Looking forward to seeing your future mounts. :eek:

    Looks great. I have been wanting to try doing something along that line as well. Been wanting to start on something small like a squirrel. If you don't mind me asking. What do you have into the mount. Money, time ect......
    Where did you get the tapes?

    Thats the worst looking deer head I've ever seen ! :rotfl:


    Looks like you've got a good start at it.
    Eyes are what I look at most.

    if you go to vandykes.com and look at starter kits thats where I got the kit, it wasnt very much like 30 bucks or so and comes with everything. I got the tapes off ebay they were for deer but pretty much the same without antlers. I plan on tackling a deer next. this was more for practice than anything.
