Mink are the cutest little things, congrats on catching them! Sorry to hear about the knee, I hate leg injuries, and don't like to think of them. Hope it gets better soon.

:shock: That is HORRIBLE LOOKING!!! Glad they were able to get you out. How would you have made it out without the rescue squad? I hope you continue to mend well. Nice looking mink hides.

Yeah, like RR said, "Ouch"!! I like your little green skinning/lounging area. Thanks for the close up of the mink's face. I had mounted a female this past year and had used dark brown eyes. Had been thinking I should have gone more to black, but your pix shows that they are dark brown. I was waiting for some mrat fur to patch a gap and a couple of seam lines (my form was too big!). I should finish it up, take some pixs, and get it on ebay fairly soon!!!
