1st Timer

I said goodbye to 1st Timer today. He was the first deer I ever mounted. First timer was created twelve years ago in taxidermy school.
I received a call from someone looking to buy a deer mount for a gift. I remembered that 1st timer was shoved in a corner in my storage room. I haven’t looked at him for years. I was worried that he might not be in the best of shape. Remember he was the FIRST deer I ever mounted and he was 12 years old.

 

I dug him out and dusted him off. I took inventory of his condition.

1. lower lip pulled away

2. eyes typical to a beginner, without depth

3. color faded

Overall not too bad. In fact he looked better than some professional taxidermy work  i’ve seen. I fixed his lip and  brightened up his color. He was good as new. His new owner was very pleased with her new piece of art!

Walking down memory lane with 1st timer made me feel quite good. I’ve very proud of my artwork as  taxidermist!
