Hi folks, I'm going to have a kiriban prize for the first US resident to give me a screen shot of their 50K page view, because this number is quite a milestone for me! I'm sorry to say that the prize is for US residents only, since I don't have a broker to ship animal parts internationally.
The prize is a deer antler mount made from your choice of supplies that I have on hand in my shop. I can mount deer antlers that you have already or you can pick a free small set from the extra antlers I have available. I will send the winner photos of the wood panels, antlers, and materials available so that she/he can pick out a design for the mount.
I have a $400 fuel oil bill, so the Winter Wolf is up for sale to help pay for heating this winter: https://www.etsy.com/listing/118314454/taxidermy-wolf-pedestal-mount
