Very cool and expensive display. Looks great.

This won first place in the studio division for Safari Studios at the 2022 Texas Taxidermy show.

I dont think the coyote in the air is realistic, but it looks cool.

I've always wanted to get a painting done of a big buck in a water trough with coyotes surrounding it, which is something i watched in duval county years ago. Or maybe i'll just get a mount done like that haha

It's a nice piece but I'm wondering why they skimped on the habitat.

The far right edge is supposed to be water, so itís a buck backed up against a pond

I like it for the imagination and work that went into that. A little much for a home display but great for a display at a business.

The surface is littered with lots of tracks like you'd expect from coyotes fighting with a deer but it could have had some smashed vegetation around. It was a little stiff seeing in person. I'm betting the customer was budget tapped out

I like it! There was a muley/lion mount in the ClayDesta building in Midland, that is similar and very cool.

He just ripped off the deer's tail It's in his mouth and the action may be the result of his tugging and going that way. Just saying maybe

Unique piece.. I feel like less is more in this case.. the coyote biting the leg looks legit, but the other two kinda look forced. (maybe it's just the angle thou)
