Ware do you hunt snipe? Any in Ohio,...salt water birds?, shore birds? Sounds like big fun to gun them.

Wet lowland fields and marshes along the shores of lakes like Eire and big rivers.

Default Kansas quail mount

This mount is of birds from 2011. This was the first hunting season for my Gordon setter puppy at 9 months...RUBY she is now 8 years old and now a pro at Kansas quail. In my mount two birds were from the covey rise, a true double, one we followed up and the 4th bird was from the covey flush described in my first post that Steve had flushed. These are all hen birds by chance. Gunned with a Parker Reproduction with Merkel 28" 16ga barrels...(-: The deer sculls are from the same trip found in our Kansas hunting areas. The mount cost me 300.00 Real bargain... SXS ohio

Kenny, nice mount!
Did you change the chokes in those 16 gauge barrels? I remember you said they were “death on Kansas pheasants” a few years ago.

I have only ever mounted one bird - the one I showed earlier in this thread.

These are my very first longbeard and an early grouse, but I don't remember if it was a significant one.

They were both taken in full view of the ridge "Toot Hill" in the sunrise picture between them in Vermont's Northeast Kingdom.

The problem with taxidermy is it does not stand up well to age. Maybe really well ones do. I have the snipe shown above and a deer. I also have a Diamondback rattlesnake skin that I am getting framed in order to preserve it. I will post pictures when done. It was 6 feet long and had four fangs. The head with the fangs are still in the science lab at my old school as of a few years ago.

Rattlesnakes typically have at least several sets of "ready to go" fangs in reserve, behind the ones currently in use. They can replace broken or worn fangs in pretty short order, and it is not real uncommon to see a snake with three exposed fangs, but I have never seen four fully exposed fangs. This has gotten many dog handlers in trouble over the years, as they unknowingly would "de fang" a rattler to use for snake training, not knowing that within a few hours, that snake may have replaced the broken off fang, and is again fully functional.

We use either surgical staples, or a couple of cable ties, to secure the business end of the snake for aversion training.

here are a few "in waiting" from a few years ago.
