Issue 71, Spring 2003


When Breakthrough Publisher Larry Blomquist judged and photographed the I.G.T. Convention June 2002, this pheasant pair kept catching his attention. At the end of the photo session, Larry decided to take a series of photos of the pheasants from all angles to see what the possibilities might be. Larry soon knew the photos had cover potential. Ken Edwards offered to work with the digital images and perform his magic. As you now see, all efforts were successful.
The big credit must go to Brian Harness of Harrison, Arkansas. His taxidermy skills and artistic composition of this pheasant pair earned him two first places in the Master Division at the I.G.T., and two weeks later, two first places in the Open Division at the N.T.A. Convention. Brian has taken numerous top awards in mammal and gamehead competitions at state and national levels over the last few years, but this piece exposes how versatile he really is.
