Razza's Taxidermy Studio Bowsite Sponsor
Great looking work!!! Really like the Zebra skin on the buff pedestal
Awesome work as always Dennis. You're an artist.
AWESOME art work. Forrest
The sable/roan double is outstanding...very cool!
Really nice looking art work. Congrats
Awesome Job Dennis, love that leopard.
Dennis please don't take this the wrong way but I hate opening up your threads It just fills me up with too much regret not researching who to do mine after my African trip :(
Well damn Dave...if you would ever go back with us that wouldn't be a problem :-) haha...
I hear ya Peyton I hear ya lol you should see my eland's ears Let alone someone else's zebra I got need to stop before more depression sets in
Ya Dave we need to watch you man handle another elephant turd, you got to go back, Dale
That tears it! I'm selling the kids for scientific experiments and going to kill me a couple buffalo and a small zebra shaped like Africa lol. That is wicked fine taxidermy right there, so cool!
You guy's are right on that maybe next year. Hell I know who's doing my taxi work after
love your threads. thank you for sharing
Thanks again guys!
Highlife, hope you get to make another trip soon.
Here's another Zebra I finished today.
Great work you are a true artist
Nicely done Dennis!
True artistry on display!
Very nice! Thanks for posting the pics.
Dennis, wanted to know about the Hartmann zebra dew lap. does it not show in shoulder mounts? or does it show if different forms are used ? beautiful mounts. Forrest
Forrest, Yes it should show. Only the mountain zebras have a dew lap. When working on hartmanns' zebra or other mountain zebras that have a dew lap we would just shape one to the skin. Dennis
true works of art, great job Dennis.Chuck
Dennis ,thank you. I killed a Hartmann zebra stallion in Namibia this past June, it had a very pronounced dew lap,& 35" neck. That is my reason for the question . Forrest
Where the heck did that zebra base come from??? How much did that thing weigh? Love it! All are really nice taxidermy work my man!!!
Everything looks great but those buffs are incredible!
Thanks for sharing! I have a great taxidermist but I'm going to have to send you something one day, your work is outstanding!!!
Could be any better trying to remember where are you located???
Incredible artistry Dennis....as usual!
BO-N-ARO, The base was part of a pillar that was torn down in a construction job. I was lucky enough to have access to a few. They are solid and very heavy! I only have 3 avaliable now. I bet these would cost a small fortune to have made!
michaelw, Thanks. Would love to do something for you!
Adventurewriter, I'm in Western Pa near Pittsburgh.
Some more African work came in today. Check out the teeth on the hippo!
A couple recent projects.
Wow Dennis now that is detail work right there
Never saw anyone do blood coming form the nostrils yet... Amazing original concept. Exceptional detailed work!
Dennis, when I was a lodge owner here in Colorado I was reminded that many people judge one's business about how clean their parking lot was before even coming in.
Your workshop is exceptionally clean and your work IS exceptional. Seems to follow the same comparison as above.
my best, Paul
Just beautiful work Dennis.Your craft is truly a work of art.
dennis, any chance of seeing the finished hippo?
what a nice work Dennis!!!
Last one needs the infamous tongue hanging out.lol. Nice work Denis!
Finished these baboons today. They are made for a corner and were designed to cover a fixture on the wall.
I can't wait to see the hippo when it is done!
That Zebra is hauntingly beautiful, and I think that's the best Impala shoulder mount I have ever seen. Excellent work sir.
The baboon display is really unique looking. Great looking display. It looks time consuming.
Question for you,do you know of anyone that makes a fake skull I can add a water buck to for a European?I wish i would have had mine sent back as european instead of cut
