I see some nice boots and luggage in your future.
Hey, if you're not gonna keep the skull, can I have a few of his teeth?

Currently, my plan is to keep the skull and do a european mount, but if I change my mind, I'll let you know.

Roger that!
The Texas way to do a European mount is to put the head in a wheel barrow, cover with chicken wire and park it on a fire ant mound. LOL.

Thanks DU, glad you made it back!! As an update, I had to go through several steps to get the hide validated and prepped for the tanner. I had to go near the tanner's location for work, so I took the hide with me to their facility. They were the nicest people, and let me tour their facility. I got to look through the various colors and finishes available. I finally settled on a brown called "chocolate". It's on the right on the photo. Hell, I might just make a full body suit out of this one and walk around town calling myself gator man. :roll:
