...This client has always wanted a Whiffling Goose for his collection:





Overheard at my last convention: "If you wanna make a million bucks in taxidermy, start out with 2 million and in 5 years, if you're lucky, you'll have a million left."

I think the hardcore goose killers might disagree with ya'. duel

If I was rich and had a huge mansion (which strangely I don't scratch LOL) I would have an entire wall full of Whiffling Geese. (A group like this would be called a skein).

BMD, this type of pose is what fuels bird taxidermists! but I certainly understand and respect to each his own in regards to prefereces, and I'm thankful for the differences as it keeps it interesting. flag When I was cutting my teeth, the old man would only let me mount 2 poses and 2 poses only - Banking wall or standing alert. Drove me crazy LOL!...I think that's why I enjoy doing different poses to this day.

Love it! I know it looks crazy, but for the doubters here is a pic of a goose in pretty much the exact same pose. Adding a goose in this pose to my 'to do' list!

I think it's the people who haven't actually seen a goose do that in person that take issue with the pose. Once you've seen them dumping down on you like that I think it would be hard not to appreciate. Great work as always.

I know they do it just a pose I don't care for in a mount, in no way did I knock hiswork and I guess if you had a wall full of geese it would be ok, just like some of the stupid ears I have on my deer just to change it up, but I will never have a wall full of geese just not my thing.

Good looking bird and great taxidermy as always, Matt. Singularly - not my thing at all.

BUT - It'd be pretty stellar to see multiple geese taking up a whole wall dumping altitude with the crazy aerobatics they do.

Bet you wouldn't have a probelm with trying to talking him into five, six, or more birds going ballistic on the wall. Everybody needs some job security, right??

Keep up the good work - enjoying seeing your craft!!!!

I agree in that I don't care for it but I would love to have a group of them. Watching them do that is one amazing site.

My first thought was the goose was having a seizure.

Dumb question from a non-waterfowler, but is it common for the goose to use that crazy inverted pose to drop altitude quickly?

Found the answer to my own question. Neat photo sequence and explanation:

never would of thought of that
