Always looking for a challenge so I tackled this guy.
Lots of fun.
Still drying, need to do finish work and base w/ habitat.

Re: Porcupine

Looks good. Did the quills stay in it or come out? How did you skin it? I have one in the freezer that I need to skin out and decide if I want it mounted.

May I recommend the habitat include a hydraulic hose from a John Deere tractor, and/or metal trail sign?

Re: Porcupine

I case skinned it.
Had it professionally tanned.
Did loose a few quills but he has plenty left.
Chewing on a john Deere would make me feel bad, have an old JD A I want to restore.
Thanks for the compliments.

Re: Porcupine

ok thanks, that is what I thought but wasn't sure if turning it inside out would loose all the quills. How did you flesh it without quill damage or sticking yourself? I am going to put the skin in a box when I refreeze it, sure is a "pain" to move other things around in there with him laying in there.

Re: Porcupine

Any kind of treated lumber as a habitat would work, ha
