Sorry for the lack of updates! I have been busy, but not so much with taxidermy, just personal life things.
Anyways, today I skinned two stoats! One was fine but the other was pretty badly freezer burnt, so I just kept it's tail :( The other one is being salted and is being used for a 'soft' mount. I need more stoats ASAP!
My friend brought me a female mallard today too, that she found on the road!
Here she is!
I think she's lovely! So far all I have done is taken her measurements, logged her and put her in the freezer as I haven't yet done a duck. I can't wait to try her! As her breast is a bit damaged from the car, I am thinking a flying pose, which would be a great challenge.
Tomorrow is post day but I am also hoping to get some mice and maybe rats or squirrels done then.
