Thanks for your comments. I still can't believe the work my brother does. He's only been doing mounts for 4 yrs. One of these days he might have to take a class for taxidermy and do it for more than a hobby.
Can't wait to see how his spring gobbler came out as it should be done drying. His Tom was a couple pounds heavier than mine and had about a 11" beard. I got him on the spurs though.
All in all an awesome May, between him, my nephew and I we took 5 birds off the farm we hunt then headed up to NFLD for bear and just got those capes back from the tannery.
