Carnage Hopper (gallows variation)


This would get you close; add an underwing of Swiss Straw/Medallion Sheeting and those crazy legs he loved (not sure who sells them anymore), if desired. He used bigger iron but I've been happy with the scud hooks.

Couldn't find whatever red legs are in the original recipe so I substituted small round rubber legs but it seemed to work just fine.

Also I added a second wing of light grey poly yarn over the deer hair instead of the foam tag to help it stay upright and visible a little better.
