Mounting a World-Class Whitetail Deer Shoulder Mount Part 2: Making Earliners and Cape Preparation

WITH 3-TIME WORLD CHAMPION GENE SMITH WRITTEN AND PHOTOGRAPHED BY LARRY BLOMQUIST

In Part 1 it was explained that this is a very detailed article covering the process of mounting a competition whitetail. I also emphasized that not all taxidermists want to do competition work, but I stressed that having this knowledge will make you a better commercial taxidermist and increase the value of your work. Every bit of knowledge we gain will reward us in many ways toward the road to being successful. Properly sizing a skin, preparing a form, and prepping the skin are the first steps to success in commercial and competition taxidermy.

Making Baitfish

Making Baitfish

by World Champion Mike Kirkhart

     In this episode of “From the Water to the Wall” I am going to show you how to make reproduction baitfish that can enhance any fish mount and make you a few extra dollars while improving your display and helping to set you apart from your competitors. This method can be used for any small fish that is for a customer who desires a better than lonely looking fish mount. Shiners, panfish, minnows, or any small fish that is only a one-sided fish mount can be done this way. Of course you can be more ambitious than this method and make a two-sided mold, but this is for simplicity and basics, so it is sellable and affordable and profitable.

The materials used are silicone molding rubber, modeling clay, and urethane casting liquid.

Part 1: Form Alteration Mounting a World-Class Whitetail Deer Shoulder Mount with 3-Time World Champion Gene Smith

Part 1: Form Alteration Mounting a World-Class Whitetail Deer Shoulder Mount with 3-Time World Champion Gene Smith

by Larry Blomquist

I first met Gene Smith when he was 17 years old. He had entered a whitetail in the Novice Division of the 1987 World Taxidermy Championships®. I had the pleasure of judging that deer and awarding him with a first-place ribbon. It was easy to see that young man had talent, but I had no idea he also had the desire and drive that I would see in the years ahead. He won his first World Title 8 years later in 1995 at age 25.
