New Year's Eve Visitor at Pond Creek

Sun Aug 14, 2011 10:06 pm

Hey folks,

Here's a picture of my neighbor Ted, who was the taxidermist who prepared the tree-chewing interloper who visited Pond Creek back on New Year's Eve!

Ted does fantastic work, and made my Pond Creek Beaver look great!

Very nice Corky, I've been involved with that type of work and it's not as easy as some think.
We've done deer, turkey and all others.
I'm guessing a rabbit is the hardest thing I've done, pretty thin skin on those little guys.

Probably so on the rabbit. But years ago I tried tanning a deer hide, and ended up with a stinking, rotting mess; so I know it's more an art that I could not grasp...patience has never been my strength! :lol:
