Well, My goal was to put 6 Flying/landing Geese in my house. After Hanging the First one I'm not sure the Air space will sustain 5 more. I have #1 hanging as of today. the wings weren't dried but I talked my Taxidermist (Gutpile on this board) to let me take it and let it finish drying while hanging in my place. Thus the Wires still under the wings and tape.

Anyways, # 2 is looking good and I should have soon too.

Here is a Picture from the Front part of the living room :

No Sir !!! When the mount is in the Drying stage, There is Wires/tape/staples/Whatever keeping everything in place. Usually when a Customer gets a Mount back it's Dry and everything is Off... I wanted it NOW (I'm a Big Baby and all... ;) ) so I asked if he'd let me take it. When it's Dry, We'll steam and prinp fethers and You won't see nothing but a Showroom quality bird. AWSOME Mount !!! Truely !!

ANyways, I origionally went over there to pic up a Tanned bear hide He had of mine.... You might remember the bear from this last spring ?
Here is it Alive coming into the Stand :

She says I can Hang things 8' and Up.... So I utilized air space too :D :D

She made a comment when she came back from church tday and saw the goose... Something about starting to get a Bit Overwhelming. Whats that mean ?!?!

Tell her you should be able to use the rest of the wall space, so that it doesn't appear to be so overwhelming. Maybe we should have a trophy room "Trading Spaces".

Looks great to me. Hope you have plans to add a speckle belly and a snow goose just to balance things out. Overwhelming? I'm with you, have no clue what she means;)

Whiskers,
Th Momma bear just ran off after he shot it. But kinda keep it quiet, as Moosie is a bit defensive about shooting the cub.

Moosie,
YOu should hang them from the blades on the Celing FAn, and then they would look like they were circling to land.... :D

The Fan Spins Clockwise.. Geese ALWAYS land Counter Clockwise, Remember Guner . ;)

Elkhunter, I actually thought about that. I was going to paint it once it was up, But I'm not sure about it yet, Maybe the next one


'Sky, I'll need to add some. First, I need to find a Place I can Get one and go there :D

Moosie, a) buy a flash,
and b) that's a cool concept! I like the bear rugs, too! It looks like you might have to start being real picky over what you choose to mount...you've already got about 95% more chit than my wife would allow in our house. :D
