Andre that looks more like a mounted shoveller that a carved one.  :bigup:

@Scott- Yep, it is going to worlds. That's the reason way I haven't commented yet or have come on THO in like a week. I have to get too much done! :sweatdrop: :stickman1: :helpsmilie:

@Barry (wildthings)- You noticed! I really was hoping that some people would see it.

@Longntooth- not even a pulse!

@Wane- Trying to get it to look like a mount is my main benchmark (somtimes even better if I can :devil2: haha). Somebody asked me one time if I glued on feathers :stickman1: nope! :no: it is all wood I promise.

Thanks everyone! I should be posting pictures of everything I will be competing for worlds shortly before or after the show. ~Andre'

Andre, you're one heck of a talented fellow.  There are a lot of us that'll be pulling for you at the worlds!

Yeah I noticed and I think most people, who are not taxidermist, would not notice something like that. Something about being uneducated in that aspect. That's why I try to educate all my clients in the small detail items that really make a mount, oops carving stand out above the rest.

Props to you!! Job well done
