    I think Amy Carters baby fox was more real then the judge says in my opinion a adolescence baby kit fox would more then likely not be looking right at something as they roll and play their eyes roll and wander at the same time so dumb judge I think

    This is amazing. It's fascinating to see something that could've been forgotten forever being brung back to life via Taxidermy. I have a soft mounted Taxidermy wolf and many fox and coyote tails. I love Taxidermy. Idc what anyone says. 🙂

    I have really strong memories of when I submitted my work in the late 70's early 80's to Joe Kish's (of Taxidermy Review and Denver Museum fame)competitions in Denver Colorado. Always a point or two off a Blue I asked Joe Kish to let me know what else I could do, He told me keep it up, "I had It" meaning alot from him, On my mounts, I always tanned the hide myself, sculpted the manikins and made them myself, made all my own jaw sets with dental acrylic after making silicone molds, What I learned in Taxidermy I use it in my photography business making it easier to see things.
