Double Gobbler mount

Just found this site so I figured I'd post my first pic. This is a piece I did for a customer last year. Thanks for looking.

Very nice. My taxi still does it the old fashion way and skins them and uses the skulls and putty and his look great to. Keep up the good work!

Honesty is my only excuse.

Wow! One of if not the best looking turkey mount I've ever seen. Those heads are fantastic.

Re: Double Gobbler mount

Thanks for the compliments guys. I also skin my heads to the beak, then I stretch the skin over a foam insert of the pose I want. Then I inject the wattles, snood, crown, and whatever else needs plumped back up. Then I put them in my freezer until I have all my heads done, then take them to my friends freeze-dryer.
