    Wanted to let you know after my business burned down awhile back, I thought this handsome fella was gone! 99% was lost in the fire. He was sitting next to my desk by one of the only walls remaing in the building. he looked like a wet rat, and covered in ash. The fire chief was able to get him out later that day.

    I honestly didnt have much hope that he was salvageable.... After getting him back to the taxidermist, i was shocked to hear the words (He is fine!) After a good cleaning and completely redoing the base/habitat, he made it home.

    So wanted to show him off.
    Thanks for looking :D

    Considered a "cross" fox. Because the shape of colors. Not because half silver fox, half red fox. (had to do some studying :) Little hard to see because of the bright sun...

    Called in and shot 5 years ago.

    Glad you were able to salvage him! Whoever your Taxidermist is, he's worth the money.

    Have to agree with shorty, your taxidermist is very good!

    Thanks fellas. Bottom picture was taken after I shot him. I placed him on the fence posts for a picture.

    Taxidermist took second place at Montana State Show and received the "Sharpest mount in MT" award also. Below is a picture of the first mount done.

    Was very cool!!! They actually took a shotgun (14) shots, and blew out the corner of pedestal. Then mounted a Hungarian Partridge in there. Wood was also "peppered" with BBs.
